The City of London Corporation is unique as a local authority, looking after residents, businesses, organisations and visitors in the square mile. As well as all the usual functions of a local authority, it also provides services as diverse as the Barbican centre and Guildhall school of music and drama, the animal reception centre at Heathrow, Epping Forest and the Port authority.

Many of these projects combine training with one to one or team coaching, facilitated workshops and consultancy to address the needs.
Bev Campbell Head of the L and D team comments “The City of London has worked with Focal Point for many years now, and the service that they deliver is always of the highest standard. They work with the City as opposed to just working for the City which is appreciated by all that work with them.”
