About Masterclass ™

With over 50 specialist trainers, consultants and facilitators, we have the strength in breadth and depth to deliver exceptional programmes on a UK, European and International basis.

All our consultants are highly skilled facilitators and trainers and experts in coaching and mentoring – our management and leadership specialists have first hand experience of managing teams and delivering results, our sales experts are “quota carriers”, our coaches’ references demonstrate their worth, our presentation skills and voice specialists lead by example.

We work with you to identify the business and organisational issues you face and what you want or need to change. We look at how you will measure success and what return on investment you want to achieve. Only then do we create and tailor our solution.

Whether you work with our performance improvement specialists, our executive coaches, our sales training consultants or one of our lead trainers, expect a rigorous approach.

Our commitment to quality and our full ISO accreditation means that we monitor, very closely, the quality of our training team and the results that our clients achieve. Like you, we want to know that what we do makes a difference.

“Masterclass have always taken the time to really understand our needs and have worked very closely with us in shaping the format and content of training courses and a Leadership Excellence Programme to our specific requirements. One of their key strengths is their ability and desire to bring their vast experience of working with other clients to us in a way that adds true value, and it has definitely helped us to strengthen our business.”
Steve Purdy, UK Country General Manager
“Weight Watchers used Masterclass to deliver Performance Management training with a small team of Managers. They really took the time to understand the specific challenges of the individuals and the business and delivered a workshop based on current live situations rather than generic and the feedback from the managers was fantastic.”
Leah Queripel, HR Manager
“I trust Masterclass to consistently provide quality training which is targeted to our business needs. Feedback has always been excellent and transfer of learning to the workplace is clearly apparent. I would recommend Masterclass to any company requiring a high standard of tailored, customer-focused events.”
Cherry Fawcett, Learning & Development Manager
“Thank you so much for last week, I’ll be honest and say I didn’t have high expectations but I couldn’t have been more wrong! I got so much from your course and came away feeling much more confident and motivated. You’ve helped me realise that a 90/10 split on time as a “player manager” is not sustainable and that I need to utilise my team more, even doing so this week is already starting to make a difference”
Course Attendee, Ultima
“I have been offered the role of GCM at Moreton Park. I clearly had a successful interview and part of that was due to the powerful presence course, I maintained eye contact, did not drop my head, I was wearing an aqua blue shirt and the hair was gelled up as advised. I spoke clearly and firmly and had nothing in my pockets. It’s very easy to walk away from these courses and take nothing from them. I haven’t and it’s paid off.”
Andrew Gledhill, GCM
Really enjoyed this part of the course. Very good and clear content Jane is super skilled. I have really enjoyed this opportunity and am grateful for everything from Masterclass.”
