About Benchmark

Helping people to learn new skills is my passion!

Communication is what I train in – everything from face to face communication – telephone communication and written communication.

Benchmark started over 20 years ago when the world was very different (no Internet…………..) and the pace of life was maybe just a little slower.   I like to pride myself in keeping up with the times and incorporating new ideas and skills into my training courses all the time.

You can keep up to date with what I do on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as well as conventional methods of email marketing and direct mail.

I run one day courses, two day courses and series of courses – depending upon the company’s requirements.

You can attend open courses (ie where may have one or two people to train in a

specific skill) or in-house, highly personalised training courses which meet your company objectives and ethos.

My training is flexibly, light-hearted (but meaningful) and carries the signature of Benchmark that ‘learning should be fun’.  Theory sits happily with practical sessions and discussion with competitions and quizzes – all learning styles are catered for.

I’m also proud to announce that is registered to deliver training for the LEP Skills Service. This new service from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) helps businesses to identify their skills needs based on their business’ growth objectives, then the right training solution is subsequently found. Small and medium-sized business based in the Leeds City Region that have a budget to put towards training could be eligible for funding of between £500 and £50,000.

“I took so much away from your training and I still use it today and try and pass it onto people I work with now”

“You make training pleasurable rather than tedious!!”

“Feedback I’ve had from everyone who attended is that it was great. They all enjoyed it and found it incredibly useful. Thank you – it was a resounding success”
