Odyssey Personal Development and Training offers a wide range of personal development and professional skills workshops and seminars.

Odyssey training sessions enable individuals to create change within their lives and become more confident, positive and effective both personally and professionally.

Programmes can be modified or developed according to individual or organisational needs and workshops and seminars can be provided 'in house' or on an open access basis.

At Odyssey we work hard to ensure our workshops are inclusive and accessible. To facilitate a more effective and enjoyable learning experience, all open access workshops take place in small groups of up to 8 participants (Claxby) and up to 12 in other venues. (Seminars and specially commissioned training may be open to larger groups)

Why not invite us to deliver a workshop exclusively for your team, or join with another organisation to maximise cost effectiveness?
