Antoinette Oglethorpe Ltd is a professional training and coaching company specialising in career management and mentoring. Our mission is to empower and inspire people to fulfil their ambitions and realise their potential. Based in the UK, we deliver our programmes nationally and internationally.
We have created unique models, tools and templates to empower employees to take ownership of their career development with support from their manager and organisation. Every year, these approaches are adopted in organisations including Red Stripe, the World Health Organisation and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office Services.
We create real engagement and learning that sticks by working in a creative, stimulating, challenging and fun way. All our tools and techniques are practical and doable.
We give time to practice the techniques, ask questions, and make sure everyone understands before we move on. We keep the learning fresh with relevant regular blogs, e-learning and free e-books.
Online delivery allows us to reach four regions and time zones. A lot of our clients operate globally and internationally.
Research by the Corporate Executive Board shows that 70% of employees are dissatisfied with perceived career opportunities in their organisation. The average person spends 90,000 hours at work. That is too long to be unhappy.
Progression doesn’t have to mean promotions and pay rises. Career success is different for everyone. Our programmes empower employees to take ownership of their career development with support from their manager and organisation. And that’s good for business. Because happy and engaged employees are more vibrant, 15-30% more productive and stay longer.
A manager who attended our Confident Career Conversation Workshop noted:
