Over the years I have found that we all need differing assistance to achieve our goals. On this page you will find a series of services that I have put together in the anticipation that you will find something to suit your requirements. Please also bear in mind that the training course outlined ‘The Three Ps of Building Conservation’ could also be used to form an outline for individual coaching and training whether as a whole or individual elements of it.
I am happy to hold an initial free consultation to establish what the client wants from the sessions. We can agree whether it is a single session required and for how long, or whether a series of sessions over time. Each session is usually an hour.
The client provides one or two reports in advance. If I need more information, I will ask for it. I will go through the reports and prepare a critique. We will then hold a session via Zoom that I will record. We will discuss the reports and I will ask questions and make suggestions as to how I believe the reports could perhaps be improved. It will be up to the client how that receive the critique and what they do about it. During the session we can also discuss the inspection process, note taking and how the reports are prepared.
I have experience of dealing with those who might be dyslexic.
Heritage Conservation Community is a new approach to multi-disciplinary networking for the worldwide Heritage sector. A community in which we share experience in order that we all gain, but where heritage is the primary benefactor. Where members can develop, or commence, their career in heritage conservation.
Over 20 years ago Marianne Suhr and I devised the idea of a Summer School to help provide an introduction to building conservation. Originally delivered through RICS and with SPAB support, in recent years Marianne and I have been joined by Duncan Philips and we now deliver the Summer School as a ‘not for profit’ venture.
In addition to the Summer School we are working on specific specialised conferences.
If you feel your needs may be different and best served by something other than the above services, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss.
