Our trainers are all experienced and active consultants with a passion for developing other people, and a commitment to lifelong learning themselves.

They go through a rigorous selection process to join our community of trainers and ensure they can deliver great learning experiences.

We actively match trainers with clients to ensure the individuals supporting your team have walked-the-walk in the type of consulting and the sectors you advise.

Our Trainer Community

We're looking for exceptional consultants to join us

We're building a whole new approach to how consultants develop new skills. This goes beyond how our training & toolkits are delivered, or our proprietary Consulting Skills Accelerator approach.

We're experimenting with a novel operational model. It's transparent, honest, decentralised - based in a community of experts with a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience with others. We actively embrace automation through no-code tools, with our in-house experts working tirelessly to make everyone's professional life easier to manage.

We help each other as much as we help our clients. 


Interested in joining our community of Honeycomb trainers? We are currently welcoming interest from experienced, active, consultants with a passion for developing others.  


Click here to apply

You'll need a passion for helping others become master consultants. Once accepted into our pool we'll give you full training on our instructional design and training delivery best practices, as well as access to all our training content. We have revenue share models for those interested in helping spread the word about Honeycomb.


Of fundamental importance is your willingness to commit to our Values. These guide how we interact with each other and how we support those we help. Our Values are:

  1. Build Human Connections

  2. Create Safe Spaces

  3. Say What Needs To Be Said

  4. Be Courageously Vulnerable

  5. Make The Complex Simple & Fun

  6. Leave Lasting Impact.

Our community of trainers is growing all the time. Get in touch if you're interested in joining us to build a training community like no other. The journey continues.
