Mr Chris Schiller
Chris is a highly successful and dynamic consultant trainer that challenges traditional approaches to training & development. He specialises in performance management and development, leadership, coaching & mentoring, recruitment & selection and the entire trainer training portfolio.
Client engagements have given Chris extensive overseas experience with both public and
major private sector organisations. In recent years this has led to assignments in Barbados,
Kuwait, Turkey, Sweden and Holland.
His stimulating training approach is always geared towards addressing targeted learning needs. Business-like yet with a ‘light touch’ is how his delivery style could be described.
Chris draws on the full range of accelerated learning techniques & approaches and very rarely (if ever) uses PowerPoint to deliver training courses.
Since setting up his own consultancy business in 1998, Chris has designed and delivered approximately 160 training & consultancy days per year to staff at all levels in organisations.
During this period he has also worked as a personal tutor and assessor supporting people as they work towards qualifications accredited by the CIPD.
More recently he has designed management development programme for clients that have been endorsed by the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) where he also assesses and marks assignments/projects.
He appears virtually every year at the CIPD’s HRD conference in London where he speaks on either learning needs analysis or evaluating the impact training has on the business.
Consulting engagements have seen him work on change programmes in the private sector and recently he has had to respond to the growing demand for Mentoring & Coaching skills training/services.
His own experience in leadership and management was gained in the Ministry of Defence and through his earlier passion for Mountaineering.
