Fiona Campbell of Charles River Laboratories became Robertson Training’s 80,000th participant recently.

All the Robertson Training team are jumping at this latest landmark and look forward to passing 100,000 before 2023 is out.

MD Derek Robertson said, “Thanks to the many organisations who’ve invested their precious training budget in us to get the results they deserve.  We’ve loved every minute of creating programmes, travelling the world (well Europe) facilitating across lots of sectors and cultures and seeing the results on our clients bottom line.  It’s been a joy.  It’s true that when you love what you do you never work.  And that’s the case for our team.”

Future Robertson Training CEO Elaine added, “Clients tell us that our training and development approach is simple, creative and enjoyable.  That’s probably why the most common feedback we hear is, ‘That was head and shoulders above what we’re used to.’  As the world of work moves on and training delivery evolves I know we’ll be right there for our clients and their people.  After all, the world wins with confident, capable and agile learners.”

As for Fiona, she received a, certificate, copy of Derek’s book, The Great Cape Escapade (A fable about effective meetings) and in keeping with its space theme a celebratory Neapolitan ice cream - astronaut style freeze dried ready-to-eat space food!
