Training

 

Louise has extensive experience of designing and delivering training for clients from the education, voluntary and social enterprise sectors. Workshops are highly interactive, practical and fun. Cake is often involved. But only if people are good.

 

 

Bespoke courses

 

Sometimes it’s helpful to have a course specifically tailored to your needs, or for training to be delivered onsite to an individual or a team. If you’d like to discuss the options, please get in touch.

About Louise

An award-winning education and social affairs journalist, Louise writes for publications including the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times and Newsweek.

 

An early foray into training took her to post-conflict Kosovo where she spent a year advising journalists on the principles of independent reporting in the run up to elections: she’s since designed and delivered courses for NGOs, social enterprises and HE/FE institutions in the UK and abroad, where the experience has thankfully been rather less fraught.

 

A confident and engaging public speaker and commentator, Louise is available to chair conferences, workshops and seminars.
