Welcome to Peter Venn's resource directory
Within this site, you'll find out about me, my family and
my hobbies, interests and passions.
The site is designed to be a quick-access tool for anyone
with interests in personal development and training, while giving
quick access to subjects as diverse as science fiction and jazz
I try to make a point of adding new interesting sites every
day or so, so you may find it worth bookmarking the site: it
does change regularly.
If training is your passion too, let me know about your favourite
sites and I'll include them here. Meanwhile, here's a map of
the area in Milton Keynes where I work.

A little about me: I'm 43 years old, currently single (again!)
and work in the field of training and personal development. I'm
the Knowledge and Design Manager for The Merchants Group, a Milton
Keynes-based company specialising in customer value management
for major blue-chip companies.
My experience in training goes back many years, however I
haven't felt this engaged in the discipline for a long time.
Merchants have a knack of challenging people in order to get
the best from them. I believe that it's due to their open culture
that I've been able to accomplish more in the last six months
than I was able to in the last three years in my previous company.
The culture is based on team effort and collaboration, and
within this culture, it's been possible for me to help drive
the launch of no less than ten complete career development programmes
for staff within our Managed Services division. Next year, we'll
be designing new programmes to support every role within the
company, and as well as this, I'm developing an Open Learning
Centre for the company that will be accessible to all staff worldwide.
You can probably tell already that Merchants is a very exciting
place to be!

The training material I develop for my company
cannot be shared here. However, I produce training material at
home on a variety of subjects (mostly generic interpersonal skills)
and I'll be posting them on this site for anyone to use freely.
All I ask is that you email me to let me know. In the spirit
of sharing, if you have any copyright-free training material
you'd like to share with the world, send it to me and I'll be
happy to post it, with appropriate credits.
