Where does Brefi Group operate?
Brefi Group will operate anywhere where business English is spoken! We are based in Birmingham and London, UK. Our primary areas of activity are in Britain and America, but we have also operated in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. We are currently negotiating strategic alliances in Asia and Australia to provide local bases from which we can recruit and train more associates.
Do you employ any staff?
We do not employ consultants. We believe that we get better service from carefully selected independent professionals. However, we have an active programme to ensure that any Brefi Associates are fully integrated into our team, with common skills and values.
How does Brefi Group charge?
We generally charge by the day or, for coaching, by the session or programme. We prefer to adopt a flat rate with the minimum of additions for expenses. For larger projects, we will consider an all-inclusive total fee.
Brefi Group consultants are trained and qualified to a high level, with senior experience of large organisations. We focus our activities on corporates. Our fees are in line with the market we serve.
How can I obtain benefits from Brefi Group at low cost?
Brefi Group web sites offer a wide range of valuable resources that can be accessed on-line, downloaded or delivered by e-mail. Many are offered free, and most are very inexpensive.
A good start is the job description. An up to date job description should define either what the post holder needs to do, or what they need to achieve. In either case you should be able to translate these into skills and aptitudes – competencies. Your organisation might already have adopted sets of competencies for different grades and disciplines.
An alternative source is a recognised set of external competencies. We use those developed in the UK by the Management Charter Initiative and the Institute of Directors.
