Specialist Trainers in Behavioural Change

Property & Construction

"Skills you can build on...."

ALP has considerable experience and an excellent track record in the property and construction sectors. This enables ALP to tailor the content of its programmes to client's specific needs and understand the relevance of ‘side issues’ that are often raised as discussion points during a training session.

ALP understands the differences between professional practices and other commercial enterprises: their structure, culture and the range and types of contacts they make.
