Well, there is no doubt that we wouldn’t have achieved our continued growth and success without the generous help and support from our associates and loyal clients, who are such an important part of the Great Chatwell Academy of Learning story.
So, on behalf of everyone at Great Chatwell, let me first say a very simple but heartfelt and sincere, “thank you!”
It hasn’t always been easy, but with a continuing commitment to care and excellence, and not to mention many long hours, we have stayed focussed and true to our convictions. Our aim is to engage, inform and inspire those that we work with, and to provide our clients with a memorable and outstanding service that they take pride and comfort from.
We will never be content with just being good. We are always looking to improve and over the past year, we have continued to grow our proposition by working with other trusted professionals who are experts in their field and who share our commitment to excellence.
We identified ManchesterCF as our preferred provider for advanced online e-learning and we have developed an outstanding programme of personal communication skills development for financial crime professionals with Amaze Training. We believe that by providing engaging learning and helping professionals to be more effective in implementing and communicating change, then we will make a difference in the fight against crime and terrorism.
In June we moved to our new offices and we also rolled out new technology in our workshops. This supports even greater engagement and interactivity for delegates, whilst providing insightful management information about individual learning needs and achievements to senior management. We believe that we are the only learning provider that is providing this support from workshops and our clients are now able to strategically identify those learning intervention requirements that will make a real difference to their success.
Later this year other courses will be announced and will include an advanced trade-based financial crime compliance workshop for risk professionals and experienced trade services professionals and we will shortly be inviting firms to talk to us as we will be providing a very exciting customised e-learning programme for firms that want a fully tailored programme of workshop training and e-learning.
And finally, as the MD and founder of the Academy, I would just like to publicly express my personal gratitude to my team who are so hardworking and dedicated to supporting Great Chatwell and our clients to be successful. It is never taken for granted. This year couldn’t have happened without you.
