Training

Whether enhancing soft skills, polishing marketing, leadership, and communication abilities or developing personal and professional competences, my training programmes are built around the client’s needs.

Since 2009, the emphasis of my training activity has been a collaboration with the Università Cattolica, Milan, Italy, as an Adjunct Professor.

Currently, I teach the International graduate course Leadership coaching: bringing potential to the stage of work and provide teaching, tutoring, coaching, and mentoring as part of the International Virtual Internship Program.

In past semesters, I additionally taught the International graduate course Personal marketing: performance skills at work, plus the Interfaculty postgraduate course Training through drama and coaching for work.

“This course [Personal marketing: performance skills at work] has really challenged me to take a hard look at how I live my life and my values. There is a lot that this course opened my eyes too and made me want to do. Each week, I was inspired to look at myself in a new way. It also taught me that if there is something I want to do, learn, or achieve, it is up to me and only me to do so. This course delivered on its goal.” International graduate student, Milwaukee, USA

“What I particularly like about this course [Leadership coaching: bringing potential to the stage of work] is that we see things differently as we go along. We always have well thought out and precise ideas of things, but this material allows us to go further and see life differently.” International graduate student, Toulouse, France

“Brian Groves, one of the best teachers I have ever had, who taught me to live this ‘piece of my life’ at its best. Your classes triggered me to change in order to escape homeostasis. Thanks to you, I will never forget to scream for freedom.” Interfaculty postgraduate student, Milan, Italy

In 2012, as a Visiting Professor, I taught the course Training through drama and coaching for work at the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Krakow, Poland.

“In my opinion, the whole course was just really great. … And you have this very rare gift to speak about big things, so simply. … Thank you for coming to Poland to teach us this very interesting course.” Journalist and graduate student, Krakow, Poland

“The feedback from the students regarding Brian’s work has been positive and we at the university are very satisfied with his activities.” Rector, Pontifical University of John Paul II, Krakow, Poland

Beyond the academic world, since 1989 I have provided over 15,000 hours of professional and personal development to a portfolio of corporate and individual clients.

Past clients include ARCA SGR SpA, Cebi Srl, Berlitz Language Centres d’Italia Srl, Compaq Computer SpA, Credit Suisse First Boston, Dell SpA, Escada Italia Srl, Fideuram Capita SpA, Language Studies International and Luxottica Group SpA.

“I have had the opportunity to meet a person to connect to a demanding, concrete and attainable goal. Thanks to Brian’s perseverance and to our mutual commitment, we reached it in a few months. My advice to an Italian company? Activate a positive process where motivation, professionalism and preparation are reaffirmed quickly and with awareness. You don’t have Brian? It is a great loss.” IT Engineer, Milan, Italy

“We engaged Brian to design and run an in-house marketing training programme centred on the client. The programme he provided and has implemented covers many aspects of our business and involves every member of staff, including board members. As a result of the programme the objective of raising marketing awareness inside the company has been achieved.” Partner, Firm of Lloyd’s insurance brokers, Milan, Italy

“Brian Groves’ professional competence is confirmed by the attention given to the course didactics, by the variety of material used and by his capacity to adapt the lessons to different specific needs of the groups.” General Manager, Investment Bank, Milan, Italy

“The aspect of his teaching that has struck me the most is his attention to giving us material strictly linked to our marketing activity, proving at the same time his absolute knowledge of the themes covered.” Chairman, Telemarketing company, Bologna, Italy
