About Wise Owl - training, consultancy and other services

Wondering if you should trust us with your money and staff?  Here's a potted summary of Wise Owl to help you decide!

Services

We offer two types of classroom-based training - scheduled and tailored:

Type Notes
Scheduled Scheduled training courses are advertised on our website, and typically take place in London, Manchester and Birmingham.  Places are open to the public.  There are never more than 6 people on a Wise Owl scheduled course.
Tailored In addition, we also run customised training courses for businesses around the UK (and occasionally overseas).  These courses usually run at the client's site, although we can host them in one of our training venues.  For a tailored course a client can choose the topics, dates, times, venue and duration for the course.  Our only stipulation is that we won't train more than 8 people at a time, as the quality of the training would inevitably suffer otherwise.

In addition, we also develop systems for clients and provide consultancy, and hire out our Manchester training rooms

Manchester Digital

We are a member of Manchester Digital, the independent trade organisation for digital and tech businesses in the North-West.

 

Who and how we train

The vast majority of our training is provided for business and organisations in the UK.  We don't have any single typical client or course delegate, although most of the people on our courses are office workers.  Unusually:

  • We won't train more than 8 people (ever), and prefer to limit course sizes to 6.
  • We publish all of our materials on this website, so potential customers can decide if they like our approach to training.
  • We never use freelance trainers (here's some thoughts on the subject).
  • We don't invoice for training until after it's taken place.

Our aim is to make training courses as enjoyable as is possible within the constraint that there's a software application to be learnt!

We also have the resources and systems to offer a complete outsourced Microsoft training service.

Ethos and values

We have summarised how we work in this page, although we do now have a mission statement thanks to our excellent marketing guru Karen, which is:

"To empower people with confidence, knowledge and skills so they can solve their problems and work more efficiently."

We'd like to think that we're a bit more proactive than Google: rather than not doing evil, we like to think we actively do good!

Jobs

We frequently advertise vacancies on this site - see our jobs page for details.
