About Us

Our Approach

Our Approach


We ensure our training is participative and experimental
People don’t learn much by ‘chalk and talk’ but by joining in, experiencing things for themselves and enjoying the process. As enthusiastic practitioners ourselves, we design and plan our training sessions to take all of these things into account.

Encouragement & Humour
People don’t learn when they are bored, so we ensure the training sessions are lively and interesting by finding new ways to present information and by offering encouragement to try new things. A sense of humour also helps the learning process along!

Overcoming barriers and resistance to training
Stand & Deliver trainers are also experienced in working with people for whom training is a new and perhaps threatening experience. We know how to make people feel comfortable and to provide a range of ways in which information can easily be assimilated.

Wide experience of learning & development
We have worked with many organisations throughout the UK and abroad to deliver cost-effective management training programmes. Our experience is at your disposal. Some of our client organisations are listed on the Clients & Feedback page.

Development of materials
As experienced practitioners we have a proven track record in the design and execution of programmes in accordance with client specifications. We bring a creative eye to training solutions whilst always keeping in mind the business focus of the client and the development needs of the participants.

Evaluation of training
We carry out immediate evaluation after every programme and event and provide the client with that information in a summary report. For longer programmes, the evaluation process will be agreed between Stand & Deliver and the client.

Our Team

Background & Team

Stand & Deliver was formed in 1993 and we have grown yearly in aspects of turnover, number of clients and trainers.

John Eatough is the MD and Business Manager and keenly oversees all aspects of the business.

The range of our training and development programmes has widened in response to the needs of our clients. We never forget that we are privileged to be chosen by them. We are proud of the fact that clients keep asking us to take on new assignments for them and we work diligently to maintain our reputation for rapidly developing cost-effective learning and development.

Each programme, or workshop is designed and delivered by one of our handpicked, specialist training consultants. Our services are delivered throughout the UK and overseas and are backed by an efficient Course Support department.

Our training team is made of “Specialists” who are experts in their field whether it be ILM Programmes, Leadership, Communication Skills, Project Management, Finance, Sales etc. etc….




Our trainers are specialists with a proven track record and extensive knowledge and experience in their development areas. They work across many industry sectors, incorporating best practice into their work. They share a common value base and are committed to and invest in their own life-long learning. Our approach is dynamic, engaging, and interactive and we always look for new ways to ensure maximum involvement and motivation.

The required outcomes are our focus and we work with organisations to build partnerships to put into place development programmes that fit. This may be in the form of a menu driven list of designed in-house workshops or it may be a multiple-day programme containing specifically designed segments to be delivered over a specific period of time for a number of groups. The learning can also be a short intervention designed for maximum impact.
