Keeping Up to Date, So That You Are Up to Date!!

The FCG Sherborne Office is a growing small business with a team of 13 of us. People are our biggest asset and we are continually investing in their training and development. We want the team to grow and develop as the business grows. A more informed and capable team will add more value to your business and these same statements that I have just made apply equally to your business.

Our team attends six training days per year with FCG nationally. Less experienced consultants also attend the ongoing FCG Futures Foundation consultancy training in house. Here are some of the external courses attended and qualifications received in last 12 months.
