Sally Pearman

Sally is the Centre's Director of Learning and Development and has been with us for eight years. Sally is an organisational psychologist and oversees all of our management development programmes and consultancy projects, ensuring that the right trainers and training approach are used for every bespoke project that we deliver.

Sally has recently completed MSc in Human Resource Development and Consultancy at Birkbeck, University of London. This helps her ensure the learning approaches in our training are up to date and firmly grounded in theory as well as practice. Sally is also a Fellow of The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) and has led workshops, research and consultancy projects on the themes of inclusive workplaces, values creation, and designing people strategies.

Her work is driven by a passion for accessible and practical learning for everyone irrespective of background, gender or societal barriers. This has led her to work in a range of contexts from social housing, not-for-profits and charities right through to multinational corporations and retailers.

Sally works closely with Nadira Love and Maryam Momla to ensure that all of the group training events and development programmes we deliver, exactly match our clients' needs, whether that's an organisation-wide change programme or a tailor-made diversity workshop.

Sally has built a close relationship with all of the trainers we work with, and as such, can help match your organisation with a trainer who will have the specialist background to suit your needs.

Sally is based at our central London training suite on Old Street but is often travelling around London (and beyond!) meeting with the organisations we support and making sure we're kept up to date with their news and plans.

Sally’s approach is pragmatic and personal and her own values, and interest in diverse and inclusive organisations, shines through in the way she builds and delivers her projects.

Outside of the Centre, Sally volunteers with young people in North London and is involved with a vintage cabaret group. Originally Sally trained as an archaeologist and still manages to apply some of those experiences and stories to her work here, although she emphasises that it's nothing like Indiana Jones!

If you are considering setting up a staff development programme, or would like to speak about the Centre and any of the services we provide you can contact Sally on 020 7490 3030 or [email protected]. If you'd like to meet with Sally to learn more about our approach to training and what might work for you, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

"Sally has a great understanding of, and empathy for, the challenges and obstacles that those of us in the L&D space encounter on a daily basis. Her consultative, pragmatic and warm approach has helped enormously in our evolution from an organisation where people train, to a learning organisation."
