Ockendon Training Company delivers engaging, practical finance and business courses to improve your company's performance. We deliver training globally.
Our courses are designed to meet the requirements of your business and your people by tailoring them to your specific operational environment within the commercial, finance and investment sectors. Our courses are both technically rigorous and highly practical. We review current academic theory, but also – more importantly – how things actually work “out in the real world”. Our courses can be delivered in the UK and throughout your global network.
Our clients include Akzo Nobel, Barclays, Capita, CBRE, Concorde Capital, Credit Suisse, The Cabinet Office, Glenview Capital, Heidrick and Struggles, Magnox, Mayer Brown, The National Audit Office, Renaissance Capital, Schroders, Siemens and Withers.
We are based in London and work worldwide. Our trainers are adept at tailoring their approach to suit different audiences and we have delivered training successfully across Europe, America, Africa and the Asia Pacific region.
We create engaging training programmes for participants at all levels – from junior interns, still at university, through experienced middle managers, right up to very senior managers and main board directors. Our approach is to discuss, observe, analyse and work with you to create and deliver relevant, practical training which will help your people to grow in confidence and efficiency. From graduate training in financial products to leadership and strategy skills for senior directors, our courses are tailored to your organisation's needs which, we believe, is both more effective, and more cost efficient than the conventional 'one course fits all' approach.
Strategic thinking and leadership can be taught, and experiential learning is an excellent way to achieve this. We use a range of sophisticated, practical, tried and tested business simulations, case studies and role plays to achieve this. We focus on:
