Advanced Business Training

Inventive. Extraordinary. Passionate.

New Tricks (Advanced Business Training Ltd) provides training, development and consultancy services.

We have an enthusiastic, inventive approach to our work and since our launch in 2006 we are proud to call many widely recognised organisations our customers: BAE Systems, Orange, Arriva, The Strategic Health Authority are just a few (and they’re more than happy, have a look at our testimonials!)

Our inventive approach means the range of services that we can provide is ever changing and being added to. The way we do business is to make the ordinary, extraordinary.

Our training courses are all written and developed in-house. Role plays, case studies, open learning. Everything. And it’s different. Exciting. Designed to catch and hold the attention of the people we train.

So what do we do? Well, we have a full back catalogue of courses that we have already designed and delivered for our customers. The titles may be familiar, the content won’t be. We can tailor any of these to your organisation.

Don’t see something you were looking for? Not even sure what you are looking for but would like to explore the possibilities? Ring us. Anytime. Or drop us a line. Either way we are here to help realise your plans. A large amount of our business is taking customers ideas and making them into something tangible. Exciting. New.

What sectors do we work with?

All of them. We have a special NHS section to our website. Many of our latest subjects have been led by healthcare demand. Even if you are not from an NHS organisation many of the initiatives may be of interest as the majority of topics apply equally across all sectors of business. The NHS section details the highly inventive programmes that we have devised and implemented. The evaluations are there for you to look at too.

We are waiting to help.



New Tricks Advanced Business Training Ltd.

As with all our services our 360 is designed in house. Free of jargon it cuts to the real issues, recognising good performance and identifying areas for improvement.

Annual staff surveys
Developed, distributed, analysed and report production.

Staff conference activities

1275343911_openquote.gif"This has been the most interactive, informative and enjoyable course I’ve attended in a long time. All credit to the trainer"…just one of the many positive comments we received on the training that Kevin has delivered for Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust.

I have been working with Kevin from New Tricks for almost a year and have found him to be highly professional, knowledgeable and collaborative. The feedback we received from the workshops he has delivered has surpassed any we have received from any other training provider. I have had no hesitation in commissioning further work from him and would recommend him highly.

Organisational Development Practitioner, Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

1275816004_nhsnursethumb.jpgGolden Jubilee Hospital give feedback on their New Tricks training programme

"Kevin Meaney (New Tricks) designed and delivered a 3 day management
development programme for our organisation which is an NHS establishment.  The programme was well received by delegates who enjoyed his facilitative style and down to earth approach.  Kevin also shared his wealth of knowledge and experience through effective ‘story  telling' that supported delegates learning. 

"Given the success of this programme and Kevin's approach to delivery we have continued to work with Kevin for the last 4 years in designing and delivering workshops for our managers both working within clinical and non-clinical roles.

"Kevin is also helpful in providing support and advice in the development of new materials/workshops to support the learning needs of our staff.  We have recommended Kevin too many of our NHS colleagues in other Boards and will continue to work with him in the future." More >
