We continue to monitor the impact of the coronavirus as lockdown restrictions are being eased.

As part of our actions to minimise risk, our face-to-face training and events programme has been cancelled for the remainder of this academic year.

We are pleased to now offer remote training, as detailed below.

In the meantime our Consultants are continuing to deliver consultancy, advice, support and training remotely.


Our training and special events influence thinking and develop ways of introducing improvements to people management practice, and are aimed at encouraging the sharing of ideas and thinking between ECC members.

All our events are delivered by our experienced consultants and guest speakers.
