Training and Development
e-Books

Our Useful Guides encompass a fantastic range of soft skills and personal development e-Books, packed full of tips, advice, exercises and toolkits.

They can be downloaded individually or you could choose to build your own library and make these resources available to your entire organisation with unlimited downloads.

Whether you are wishing to develop new skills, find a new way of learning at your own pace or provide some additional learning material for your staff the Useful Guides will not disappoint. Many of our clients use the Useful Guides as an additional resource to support any face to face training, and the download figures to help them with their training needs analysis.

With an ever growing library of publications to choose from to offer your workforce, we continue to commission passionate authors with significant business experience to write about their specialist topics, with Guides available on issues such as health & safety, management training, business coaching, personal development, and many more.
