What we do

We are a boutique training and coaching firm committed to fully fuelling the most progressive businesses. We teach leaders to more skillfully manage their business, and how to quickly take innovative ideas through to implementation.

Knowledge and energy are key to realising opportunities in a rapidly changing market. So, we work with businesses to provide these key elements, and continuously challenge and support them so they can solve complex problems to attain great results.

As an employer, we can all say “we have a great company culture, our staff are honest with me, I know them well”. This may well be true, yet I believe you will never know the true measure of the culture within your business till you can tease it out of your staff by someone outside of your business, where they can be completely open and share what they really think. That’s what Engine Rooms Energy Workshop did for us.
