Marcomm was set up in 2002 and is owned and led by Una McSorley. We’re an award-winning provider of learning and development solutions to organisations across Europe.
Our aim is simple: to provide innovative and enjoyable training and coaching to help people improve what they do.
People like you.
Our team are experienced and qualified experts who are all still working at the highest level of industry. This means that when we tell you how something works in practice, we know what we’re talking about. We also give you practical tools that you can take away and apply in your work.
We genuinely believe that there is no such thing as “off the peg” training. Our approach involves thoroughly researching your organisation – to get a real understanding of your issues.
Before starting any training or coaching, we always:
Conduct a full interview with you, the client (which may be over the phone)
Assess your current skill levels
Ensure we have a good understanding of your business and issues
Set specific goals
Agree a way of measuring success
Design the training or coaching programme
