About Us

Up Front Training & Coaching was established in 2005 in South Warwickshire and specialises in Leadership and Management development. We work in both the public and private sectors, developing leaders in diverse roles from the Fire & Rescue Service to Financial Services to Manufacturing.

As we are a small consultancy, we are fully flexible which means we will adapt our development interventions to suit your specific needs, timescales and budgets. Our focus is always on making the learning transferrable to the work place; after all it's the changes in everyday behaviour that are the important product of learning.

We adopt an interactive style when delivering training workshops with an emphasis on brain-friendly learning techniques. This means that there is lots of colour, fun and activity in our workshops, specifically designed to aid learning.

We are best known for our work in delivering ILM accredited Leadership and Management qualifications in association with ILM approved centres and for working with people to develop their Emotional Intelligence for the benefit of the individual, the team and the organisation as a whole.

Our lead consultant, Fiona Robson, is a qualified Coach and NLP Business Practitioner and is also certified to administer and provide feedback on the EQ-i2.0 and EQ360 diagnostics, enabling individuals to improve their job success.


Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.
