Valerie Fawcett is an experienced Learning and Development consultant, specialising in providing training and coaching in people management and personal development. She has run courses for a wide variety of organisations in both the public and private sectors, and as a former publisher, enjoys combining both areas of experience in her work for Publishing Training Centre.
Valerie's professional training enables her to work with people on both improving skills and increasing the self awareness which enables change. She works with people on the three main gateways to change: behaviours (and skills); attitudes, and emotional intelligence. She uses Myers Briggs personality profiling, Transactional Analysis and other models in her work.
Valerie worked in publishing for about 15 years before moving into training. During this time, she specialised in educational publishing as an editor at Oxford University Press and a commissioning editor at Blackwells.
