Flourishing since our establishment at the beginning of the millennium is evidence of earned trust.

Wealth of experience

Working with some of the world’s biggest brands.

Spring initially provided learning solutions for professional service organisations in law and accountancy; now well into its second decade of business Spring has consolidated work across a broader range of sectors. Our experience has grown to encompass the worlds of premium consumer brands, IT provision, real estate, banking as well as education, government agencies, the NHS and a variety of other areas.

Spring has a successful formula of teamwork with full time and associate colleagues providing collaborative thinking, knowledge and experience to build and deliver solutions for our clients. We have offices in Gloucestershire and Somerset. Our work is principally throughout the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, plus some of our programmes being run in many other parts of the business english speaking world across the globe.

Our team

At Spring, our facilitators are trainers that in addition to their learning and development skills can draw on established and successful careers of managing people in commercial and professional service environments.

Our aim is to be difference makers for our clients. Matching the right facilitator for a client engagement means that we strive to understand the vision, skills and experience that aligns with those of your organisation. Seamless integration is our objective and the pursuit of your goals is our ambition.

After gaining Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development accreditation he was then for 10 years the learning and development manager of this leading global brand of footwear and Rohan performance clothing.
