Inspiring, experienced, accredited trainers

Experienced accredited trainersISOC course leaders, trainers, tutors and coaches are all senior hands-on professionals who live and work the topics on which we train. 

The ISOC Accredited Trainer Programme ensures that every trainer is a proven subject expert as well as an inspiring course leader. Accredited ISOC trainers must have at least 15 years’ experience in their field and must be active and innovating in their subject area.

All faculty are active director-level communication professionals with decades of front-line experience, not career academics.
