Commercially-Focused Training and Coaching

Our training division can help your team achieve greater commercial outcomes from R&D, commercialisation, service delivery and business intelligence projects through practical training courses and coaching.

Our courses can be run in-house and customised to suit the learning requirements and goals of your organisation or industry. We also offer individual coaching for project and team leaders wanting to expand their skills through practical on-the-job training and support for specific projects.

Mark Loeffen helped us develop a clear and concise project plan for a technically challenging high temperature casing condition diagnostic system for the geothermal energy industry. Mark’s training support helped us focus on the commercial aspects of our project right from the start and we now have a new product that is eagerly anticipated by commercial clients, even before it is launched.
