The McCrudden Gurus are a carefully crafted team of experts, handpicked by Nicky McCrudden to form a strong and complementary team of trainers with a collective training experience of over 300 years. We train all our trainers in our ‘house style’ and require minimum standards of CPD every year, ensuring you get the best learning solutions on the market.
Our gurus are experts in their own field and all have current industry experience. They have all walked in your shoes, or shoes of a very similar style. They haven’t just read a book – they live and breathe a topic and can share real stories and experiences. They take their profession seriously, but not themselves and their palpable passion for their subject leaves learners feeling inspired, stimulated to learn and to ask for more.
