About us at The Training & Development Consultancy Ltd.

The Consultancy began in 1996 and was formed by Mandy Sheppard and John Curran to provide Clients with a high quality and cost effective tailored resource to facilitate multidisciplinary team development. Mandy is well known for her work in the Intensive Care and High Dependency settings and has published widely. She is also co-editor and contributing author of Principles and Practice of High Dependency Nursing, which is now in it's second edition and is recognised as a standard reference text for Nurses working in the High Dependency environment today. Mandy leads all of our clinically based programmes. John worked in several London teaching hospitals before joining GE Medical Systems where he delivered services to Healthcare organizations worldwide over 13 years before joining the Consultancy full time. John leads our non-clinical project services. Mandy and John both have strong training and management track records and are Directors of the Consultancy. They work with a small team of associates to deliver focussed, outcome based Client programmes.

Our Clients are predominantly organizations in the UK Healthcare sector, both Independent and National Health Service, for whom we provide training and organizational development support on a local, regional and national level. We work in close relationship with Clients to identify the training outcomes that will meet that organization's challenges and goals, whilst complimenting existing regulatory and quality frameworks.
