Upcoming Events:

Engagement Works Event – Wednesday 25th April

This event is a joint conference organised by BQF and Engage for Success. The event is also hosted by GSK.

A Government report published in 2009 by David MacLeod and Nita Clarke sparked a sea-change in thinking about employee engagement. For the first time, engagement was seen as a business issue rather than something confined to the realms of the Human Resources department. During this event we will explore how employee engagement is both relevant and essential to the success of organisations. For more information please see our event page.

Special Interest Groups

Our special interest groups are designed around a combination of learning and networking. They’re a chance for you to meet people from other organisations and businesses, share best practice and discuss current issues and trends. Find out more.


Most of our training courses can be delivered in-house, depending on the number of delegates and the facilities available. Contact us for further details, call +44 (0)20 7654 5000 or let us contact you.
