My 20-year career in HR and training has been gained across retail, public sector, direct marketing. engineering and manufacturing. . Enabling others to reach their full potential gives me a real buzz.

I find running my own business as well as delivering training to be rewarding, fulfilling and very exciting.

Janice Ward MA

I’ve always been passionate about training. Before becoming an independent trainer and consultant I spent many years in HR in retail and manufacturing. People really matter to me, and even after all these years I get a real high each time I help someone to gain confidence and become prepared for anything.

I live with my husband Richard and our two children. Richard founded and runs Quest, with which we partner in experiential training. When I’m not training and coaching I indulge in my other passion, cooking.

Please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
