  3. About Us

Hi, we're The BCF Group

For the past 25 years, we have been helping organisations develop their talent, inspire their people and overcome obstacles and challenges. We do this by delivering training that makes a difference.

We spend time getting to know our clients and listening to them so that we have a good understanding of what they want their delegates to achieve and the challenges and obstacles they need to overcome.

For some, the best option will be our ILM accredited training. Others will benefit more from something bespoke.

Whatever option works best for your organisation and delegates, your training will be delivered by trainers who have worked with some of the country’s leading organisations and most senior business leaders.

“We are proud of the relationship we have with our clients and the number who keep coming back to us – not just for more training, but also our advice, insight and coaching.”

Account Manager

Sasha is the newest member of the BCF team and has brought with her extensive and varied experience in marketing, customer service, administration and leading projects.
