Working with you through Coronavirus

Coronavirus has presented us all with unprecedented challenges and concerns. At byrne·dean, we have been working tirelessly to ensure we continue to help our clients throughout this crisis.

As a flexible and bespoke business, we have re-designed several of our face to face sessions for engaging virtual delivery, as well as developing brand new sessions for thriving remotely, understanding anxiety, and leading effectively through uncertainty (COVID-19).

At a time where it’s really needed, our plan is to continue to do what we do best: connect and engage with people, improve communication, raise awareness/understanding of mental health and wellbeing, and equip people with the tools they need to perform at their best. Please get in touch with us if you like to find out more.



We engage people with straight forward, memorable ideas that are relevant to them in their day to day working life. Our training sessions are practical and challenging. Our facilitation team are passionate, inspiring and “comfortable with the uncomfortable”. We deliver exceptionally in both face to face and virtual classrooms. 

We don’t do “off the shelf” – all of our training solutions are designed specifically for the audience so that they land and resonate. We believe you can’t tell people to:

be more inclusive

engage more with their teams

reduce their “people risk”

They need to believe in the benefits, that it’s worth it, that they make a difference. We encourage people to explore other perspectives, to stand in their shoes, to see what they see and to use this awareness to reflect on their own behaviour and decision making. Our training can be proactive or reactive, large mixed business groups, smaller function led teams or one to ones.

Whether you want to raise awareness, avoid problems, react to a particular issue or develop skills through drama based learning, byrne•dean training will partner with you to maximise engagement, minimise employment risk and foster wellbeing at work.

During the coronavirus crisis, we have especially developed brand new virtual sessions for thriving remotely, understanding anxiety, and leading effectively through uncertainty (COVID- 19)

HR / ER Support

We help our clients deal with the difficult stuff that happens when you employ people.  Our advice and support complements and is inspired by our training.  Everything is underpinned by our coalface experience of employment problems.  

We draw on years of legal expertise, but our advice is not legal advice. There are many risks in the employment relationship, most of them are not legal risks.  We look at the entire situation and are willing to be imaginative and bold.  We focus on the causes of problems, as much as the symptoms. We help resolve conflict.

As with our training, we do not do “off the shelf”. All of our interventions are tailored for the situation, collaborative and focused on our client’s needs. Our world class ER / HR support services include:

conflict resolution
culture change work
diversity and inclusion strategy
HR / ER strategic planning and support
independent investigations
one-to-one coaching
recruitment, performance and promotion support
values creation and alignment
