  • Arnie now writes a monthly article for FE Weekly – check their site if you’d like to see what he is saying…
  • Clients this year with whom we’ve done some sustained work include Imperial War Museum, Bentley Motors, Shrewsbury College
  • We’ve increased our range of videos – in addition to our suite of 15 management and personal development videos, we have started to produce another suite of 1 minute models, quick 1-minute summaries based on the most popular models we have developed over the past 25 years. We’ve also produced 10 videos for the military museums sector, covering all aspects of running a museum, from object handling to fundraising to research.  If you are interested in any of these, please get in touch and we will arrange a visit and demonstration…
