Hi, Lesley Hornsby here...
As far as my credentials go, I'm CIPD qualified in Learning & Development and certified in Life Coaching with NLP. The founder and lead training consultant for pdtraininguk, my work includes face to face workshops for a variety of communication skills topics, one to one coaching, and sharing tips and advice through my YouTube Channel, to enhance my subscribers' life experience and learn new ways to positively navigate their lives. I offer life coaching through our sister company Chart a Better Life.
With substantial experience spanning over 15 years and a professional and reliable approach, pdtraininguk can help you identify the right development choices for your career or business. Any investment in developing great communication skills can lead not only to the enhancement of an individual's sense of self, but elevate a workforce to become a dynamic group of skilled communicators with greater resilience, able to face challenging situations and build rewarding and productive working relationships. Our workshops cover anything from helping you to develop your emotional intelligence to the enhancement of skills needed to excel in leadership roles.
We've always believed that exceptional communication skills enables people to engage and motivate those around them. Our goal and priority as a training provider is to focus on the achievement of our clients’ development goals, whether individually or at an organisational level; helping people realise their potential.
The training philosophy and style we encourage is informal and relaxed, the goal always to facilitate the successful attainment of a learner's personal/professional goals. Naturally we employ a variety of training techniques through each stage of the learning cycle, to maximise engagement and understanding.
