To prepare people and organisations for the Future of Work, we have brought new thinking to the whole concept of learning and development.

Our reworking of the training model, in response to workplace shifts, means our business model is innovative, our thinking fresh and our engagement unique. 

We’re interested in boosting people’s ability to conceive new ideas, new ways of being and working, to imagine change, by arousing curiosity, unlocking creative thinking and fostering connectedness. 

The Yurt Academy’s training and facilitation unlocks brilliance from the inside out – be it on an individual or organisational level.

Embedding Human Intelligence

We help companies embed Human Intelligence in their workforce to develop skills and mindsets for the future of work. We have the experience, we have the passion, and we want to make a difference.


Our masterclasses are evidence based and solution focused. Our team of experts has a depth and breadth of expertise and knowledge acquired through both research and application, and our collaboration produces fertile new ideas.


Thirty years' experience of training, entrepreneurship, international business management and community building, our Human Intelligence model offers a holistic approach to building healthy, creative, human-centred workplaces.


We continue to explore workplace research, and ideas around leadership, learning and development, and share our thoughts and interviews in our monthly newsletter. Sign up below to receive our newsletter.
