Our Operating In Challenging Environments Retreat in Umm Qays, Jordan, has been cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Subject to the situation, we hope to be able to continue our program of OCE retreats in 2021.


Training programs specifically tailored to meet your organisation's unique requirements.

We can work with you and your organisation to identify training needs, build training packages, deliver training, and evaluate training effectiveness.

The training content and approach will be tailored to your organisation's operating context and culture.

We are using professional studio equipment for remote training, providing the best experience possible for our online training sessions.
