Carmdale’s Story

Carmdale is a leadership and management training company which was formed in March 2011. Over the last 6 years the training team and our associates have successfully delivered coaching and training services across the UK, the Middle East and Africa.

Our key aim is to work in partnership with clients to meet individual, team and organisational business objectives. We achieve this through the delivery of either off the shelf or bespoke training packages.

In the next few years Rob and the team are looking to focus on training and coaching within the Berkshire and Hampshire region in particular and we look forward to providing local solutions for local business needs.
