Remember those John Cleese training videos?

“Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn’t know the first thing about either.”

Marshall McLuhan

In a nutshell:

These entertaining and engaging videos, designed for classroom or online delivery, have helped establish our reputation over the last 50 years. Among them you’ll find the classic John Cleese training videos.

Split into short video chapters, these films use famous actors to tell a story that memorably delivers workplace training on key topics, such as running meetings, delivering feedback, time management or presentation skills.

Perfect for:

  • Refreshing your soft skills training in an engaging way
  • Ensuring all staff are singing from the same hymn sheet
  • Incorporating into our other learning collections to create bespoke courses
