Our client is the largest oilfield service provider in the world and the leading supplier of technological services and solutions to the international petroleum industry.

They commissioned us to use our knowledge and expertise to develop their in-house instructors based in the field and at their Global Network of Learning Centres.


With over 100,000 people in 85 countries the task of developing and assuring competence is a real challenge. Their goal is to enable technically knowledgeable people to develop their motivation and knowledge in the art and skills of professional design and delivery of training so they can train the workforce.


We have coached their technical instructors, from around the globe, in the tools and skills of both designing and delivering training materials in their specialist field. Creating learning experiences that inspire, educate and develop the skills and competencies of managers and knowledge workers of this quality-driven organisation.

Feedback from the Sponsor

“You are by far the best quality of any training contractor I have ever used.”  Training Manager, European Learning Centre  

Feedback from participants

“This week has made me more confident, and believe that I can use different training styles – not only PowerPoint. The use of music opened my eyes.“

“Excellent workshop; an eye opener; excellent course; outstanding; very motivational, very useful; wonderful; challenging but worth the effort; overwhelming!!“ 

Feedback from Anniversary Review – how has the learning been applied?

“One year on, I apply what I learned every day; I try to change, not just with training but with everything I do; I try to find different ways to achieve goals, and try and help others benefit from my actions when possible.  I usually ask myself: is there a better way to do this, and if so why am I not doing it?” 

“The Transforming Training Seminar I attended last year in Aberdeen has been very beneficial for me on all aspects.  I am responsible for the delivery of QHSE Supervisors courses in North, Central and West Africa. My skills have been developed and, personally, I feel at real ease when delivering. Thanks again, and I hope to attend another advanced session in the future.”  QHSE Manager and Trainer, Africa
