We believe learning should be personalised, relevant, and, above all, fun. Our difference is that we make it so.

Connemara has become synonymous with custom-designed leadership and people development programmes. We believe people and their business are all different and deserve tailormade solutions to their needs.

Our experience and skill help us understand and co-create the learning solutions that our clients need to succeed. That makes us different. Our observation and innovation allow us to anticipate business dynamics and developmental needs. That also makes us different.

Yet, we are most proud of our different approach to life-long learning, one in which we:

  • create a fit between strategy and people;
  • celebrate the uniqueness of each person and business;
  • understand your business and its challenges;
  • respect your values, culture and employees;
  • believe some things never change, while others should;
  • know that time is expensive;
  • listen carefully;
  • provide new skills just in time; and
  • have serious fun while doing it.
  • Skill

    The ability to do something well; expertise 

    Connemara has been providing leadership, management, supervisory and functional skills development since 1996. We live our value of life-long learning and can thus offer the freshest thinking supported by sage experience.

  • Knowledge

    Facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education 

    Connemara is a pioneer of training and development in South Africa, which has given us a depth of understanding that only experience can create. This experience has honed our distinct capability of bringing business strategy and people development together to achieve outstanding results. 

  • Intuition

    The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning

    We attract organisations that see potential and push for perfection, and over the years we have grown alongside them. As they have changed to face the different challenges of a dynamic business world, we have adapted instinctively to ensure fresh and robust solutions are available to them.

  • Patience

    The capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious 

    The desire of people to learn more, do more and become more, influences how we do business. We celebrate the uniqueness of every person and avoid the one-size-fits-all approach, taking the time to understand your business, your industry, your challenges.

  • Observation

    The ability to notice things, especially significant details 

    Connemara is driven by a commitment to anticipate, understand and co-create the learning solutions that clients need to succeed. The way we integrate strategy, coaching, action learning, and assessments into the mainstream offering of management and leadership development, is part of our ongoing success.

  • Dedication

    The quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose 

    Through the years we have seen how learning changes the landscape that influences the mindscape. It inspires people to think bigger and become better, resulting in companies that drive excellence and leave behind legacies. We work intensively alongside our clients to make these legacies come alive.
