Media Profile

We have strong beliefs about our work and sometimes we do like to shout about it! Over the years we have been invited to comment in magazines, newspapers, conferences, books and even documentary films. Read our chapter on team working in Business Psychology in Practice.

Our heritage in sports coaching, sports psychology, occupational psychology and Big 5 management consulting is evident in our eclectic portfolio of media contributions.
