Meet the Team


We’re Bob, Dave, Rachel, Kate and Darren.

With a passion for training, and helping people, we work tirelessly to provide you with the best service we can – every day.

Bob Hayward – Managing Director


Bob is an entrepreneur and business leader with a proven success in creating and running businesses.

His expertise is in business growth sales consultancy, corporate internal communication, and world-class training.

With a passion for adult business skills training, whether soft skills like first aid and fire safety, or hard skills like driving a forklift truck, Bob has created a training centre that is a relaxed, fun, safe and yet challenging place to learn these vital skills.

David Gearon – Training Director


With over 20 years’ experience of operating and training on different types of lift trucks, Dave has brought all this knowledge and experience to this role.

He knows that training can be stressful for some people, so he ensures that every delegate that enters through the front door is made to feel welcome and relaxed so they can enjoy the course.

He wants to provide the best training that we can, so that our customers and participants are assured high standards and great value for money.

Rachel Gearon – General Manager


Rachel brings over 30 years of customer service experience to her role.

She has worked for both public and private sector customers, helping to develop outstanding processes, with the aim to deliver an excellent customer experience for everyone we work with.

She gets overly excited about spreadsheets and stationery, but tries to bring some order to the office and to make our training centre feel like a home away from home.

Kate Mills – Business and Education Development Manager


Passionate about education and training, Kate joins us with 10 years of experience within adult education and over 25 years of people management and business development experience.

She will support and motivate you to achieve your goals!

Darren Radford – Lead Instructor


Darren has over 25 years experience in the warehouse industry, operating various types of Manual Handling Equipment.  He also has worked in the Health and Safety sector for over 6 years.

Darren enjoys passing on what he has learnt and his experiences onto others and always likes to make candidates feel relaxed, as he believes if you are relaxed you will have more chance of achieving your targets.
