Ockerby Lamarque Associates is a Training
and Business Development Consultancy established in September 1987.
The two partners, Steve Ockerby and Rene
Lamarque represent over fifty years experience in sales and marketing,
management and training. Steve, prior to OLA, worked within the electrical
engineering, process control and safety systems industries. His last
position was as Sales Director for an American multi-national.
Rene has worked in the capital goods,
distribution and property development industries. His last position was
that of Marketing Services Director for one of the largest firms of
commercial property surveyors.
Following development of the industry
standard "How to Sell Marketing Services" open workshop, our
client base has long since spread into the IT, construction, distribution,
waste management, and commercial graphics sectors.
Clients tend to stay with OLA for one
simple reason. We remain important to the development of their business.
In today's dynamic environment, we fully recognise the need to get close
and to stay close. Indeed, many clients view us as an extension of their
own business. This allows us to make a unique contribution to the
direction and the facilitation of change.
A natural extension of the core training
business has been the launch in 1990 of Logical Venue Solutions (www.logicalvenues.com)
a free venue finding service. A more recent development is LVS Events (www.lvsevents.co.uk
) an event management service designed to utilise the training, business
development and project management skills of Ockerby Lamarque Associates
and the venue/destination expertise of Logical Venue Solutions.
Ockerby Lamarque Associates is not tied to
a single client, investor, supplier or venue. We do not produce off the
shelf solutions. We will develop situation specific solutions appropriate
to individual clients. Our people have the skills, knowledge and
experience to do this.
In terms of size, we can manage and
facilitate learning events and activities from small groups to company
wide programmes. In doing so, we will access the fullest range of methods
We will always look to give something extra
- whether it's in free time given at the inception of a programme in order
to get the right solution, or it's in the commitment shown during
implementation we will seek to surprise.
We work perfectly happily with in-house
training and development functions and will utilise your own resources and
facilities where appropriate. Otherwise we will organise a suitable
external venue according to the specification we agree.
Ockerby Lamarque Associates will do
everything it can to support its clients and promises complete
confidentiality in all dealings on their behalf.
