Leadership, Management & Business Training

Research from the last recession shows that developing people is vital in tough economic times. After all, it is competent, capable and skilled managers who will help lead your organisation through change.  

Dr Lesley Aitcheson, Director, Cerulean Ltd

Cerulean is a boutique learning and development company focused on providing carefully tailored training: there’s no talk and chalk, just simple, practical training you can apply immediately. 

We are a group of learning and development specialists and psychologists who came together to provide bespoke training. Our trainers, facilitators and coaches have also held senior operational roles in either education or global corporate organisations, and are educated to post-graduate level. This extensive experience brings extra value to our training and a deeper dimension to our work with you, no matter how simple your requirements.

Everything we do is rooted in the latest business psychology research.

What our clients say …

Catalyst Housing

“Lesley Aitcheson co-ordinated this event from preparation meetings through to delivery and the occasion in August was a complete success in terms of achieving agreed objectives as well as making every participant feel involved and connected every step of the way. Feedback from delegates could not have been more fulsome in their praise for how Lesley made the experience insightful, challenging and, most importantly, fun. Many thanks Lesley, you have made my job much easier with your help in setting the scene for the next twelve months.”


Brighton & Hove City Council

“We worked with Lesley at Cerulean to offer a Diverse Talent programme here at Brighton and Hove City Council – a long-awaited innovative career support programme offered to 15 employees. The programme aimed to support BME colleagues with personal and professional career development, increasing confidence to progress in careers and to overcome barriers in accessing opportunities and gaining promotion. Of the 15 participants, 4 people were promoted internally during the programme and everyone said their confidence had increased.
Feedback about Lesley has been fantastic – with participants saying Lesley had such passion and commitment to the programme throughout. ”


The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

“We were lucky to have Anna from Cerulean work with us to help us re-imagine our team vision and purpose, and to help us create a clear direction of travel. She spent time in advance to really understand what we were trying to achieve, and importantly, what was driving this. This resulted in a superb 2-day workshop where she showed an incredible knack of facilitating in an empathetic manner while somehow managing to maintain the energy in the room, keep us to time and on track! We can’t wait to start taking the next steps to move towards our newly created vision and help more people with sight loss live the life they choose. Thank you to everyone at Team Cerulean!”
