Chris Blasdale

Chris is a consultant, facilitator and executive coach with an excellent understanding of how to improve the personal and team contributions individuals make to their organisations.

He has been working in the field of management training, development and consultancy for more than thirty years, working in Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia. He uses this breadth of organisational and cultural experience to expand the horizons of his participants: this enables them to see new possibilities and explore new ways of working, ultimately leading to achieving outstanding personal and organisational results.

He uses a range of training, facilitating and coaching approaches to create a supportive but challenging environment from which to plan the changes individuals and teams need to implement improvement in their own place of work.

He has since developed a number of specialisms, including team building and development, developing customer service, executive coaching and ‘vision and mission’ workshops.
