Our associates have the backing of Inspire Group and for you, it’ll feel seamless; just another Inspire Group expert giving you the best learning and development solution there is to give.

How does it work?

It starts with a free consultation with one of our highly experienced Inspire Assist team. We then figure out which of our associates has the perfect skill-set to own your challenge, and the personality to fit in around your lunch table.

We recommend somebody and you meet them for a chat. From there you liaise directly, but we’re only a phone call away and always ready to support the process. We also handle billing for the assignment.
