Our tailor-made training programmes are designed to ensure you get the best out of your staff.  We don’t want to be the ‘tick box’ solution to meet your training targets, instead we thrive on turning an underperforming workforce into a flourishing team of more productive, motivated and happy employees.

Stratus Associates works with large public and private sector organisations across the UK.   Headed by Sonya O’Sullivan, we are a team of highly experienced consultants with a friendly, flexible and focused approach to devising courses to meet your exact training needs.

What Will Your Delegates Experience?

We can offer you ‘Off the Shelf’ programmes with a bit of a twist for you – or design something ‘Bespoke’ from scratch. These are highly participative programmes containing individual and group activities and using Accelerated Learning techniques to embed the message.  Our training courses encourage individuals to stretch themselves and learn new skills in areas such as: 

Leadership, Management, Customer Service, Presenting and Public Speaking, Influence and Persuasion, Resilience, Personal Effectiveness and Train the Trainer…

for your Front-line teams right up to Director level.

We connect with your people and provide them with the tools and techniques they need to achieve personal growth and make a positive contribution to the success of the business.

We pride ourselves on our specialist knowledge and innovative training style. Our refreshing, creative approach ensures that our courses are focused on practical exercises and skill practice in a supportive environment. We want delegates to participate and learn, not be lectured at!

  • Opportunity to target your training and development effectively
  • Careful consideration to number of participants, training time and budget
  • Optimum learning and development opportunities
  • Constantly updated and revised models and material
  • Assistance in developing a motivated and productive workforce
