“The uncertainty for employers created by the government’s National Strategy for Remote Working and the fresh legislation that will support it later this year, is understandable. What employers need most in a post-pandemic workplace is clarity, certainty and answers to legal and related matters in the employment arena. This short programme will provide a solid foundation that both identifies potential pitfalls for employers in the new workplace and critically, furnishes solutions.”

“Many online training programmes are filled with jargon and not relevant to the people on the ground. My role is to develop training that will help people in their day-to-day jobs. Our training will be lively, interactive and will come with ongoing live feedback and support through Facebook.”

John Deane-O’Keeffe is a Law Lecturer & Lecturer in Forensic Psychology. He is also a Radio Broadcaster.

John is a Director, Colleges of Criminology & Psychology at City Colleges, Dublin where he is a Senior Lecturer in Law on the FE1 Solicitors Examinations and the Barristers’ Entrance Examinations for the King’s Inns. Additionally, he is a Magistrate in England where he sits on the Northumbrian Bench and is an Associate Member of the New Zealand Bar Association. John is formerly Adjunct Faculty at Trinity College Dublin where he was Assistant Professor in the School of Psychology.

John has many years investment banking experience  in the City of London where he worked in UBS  as an Associate Director in Risk Management and latterly in the position of Assistant Director in the Legal Department (Debt & Derivatives) at Investment Bank, ING Barings.

John is a graduate of University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, UWE Bristol, LMU and the University of Cambridge, where he is a life member of Homerton College. He is also an Associate Member of Exeter College, Oxford, where he is currently engaged in research.

Out with the old classroom based, stiff, uninspired training plans. Darren wanted to revolutionise the industry. The aim is to provide interactive, enjoyable experiences for each trainee. One that will be engaging and relatable. The trainee will take away real life examples that they will use in their workplace.

Our style of delivery is humorous and inviting. The trainee is sucked into the course either online or face to face. Trainers are there to guide trainees through the nitty gritty of the course content while pulling real life scenarios and experience into the content. This means trainees are far more involved and can relate more to the content.

Anyone can read a set of slides, but to bring real life experience and knowledge lifts the training to a whole new level. Match this with trainers who are larger than life, witty and have star quality is what makes our courses work. Trainees are entertained while they learn. Some even lose sight of the fact that they are learning. This style makes the trainee sit up and take notice which ultimately means the course content is absorbed and can be utilised back in the workplace. Our amusing approach to very serious and lifesaving compliance content has proved most effective. Taking the sting out of some of the shocking or scarier aspects. Saving people’s lives is no laughing matter but teaching someone how to do this in an amusing way ensures the facts are retained and can be relied upon later.
