Meet the Team
Athelbrae was formed in 1998 by Keith and Kate Merrin. Based in Kent, we deliver training, coaching and recruitment solutions to clients throughout the UK.
As Director of Training, Keith’s 30 years expertise in the training industry, together with his knowledge in designing innovative programmes specifically tailored to the client’s business needs, is a major factor in the success of the company. One programme developed by Keith was recognised through a National Training Award.
He continues to deliver some events himself, including the Getting to Grips with Management programme, Sales and Service training. Keith is also qualified and licensed to use ability and psychometric tools for recruitment and development purposes and has designed and managed a number of Assessment Centres supporting clients in their recruitment processes.
Director of Operations, Kate, liaises with clients, delegates, trainers and venues to provide a stress free, seamless experience for all. Her background is in Management Administration in both the NHS and Private sector. She delivers some of our NHS training including chaperoning in General Practice and Confidentiality.
In 2006, Keith and Kate were instrumental in forming Kent Trainers Ltd where they were Directors for 10 years.
They have an enthusiastic and passionate team of Consultants who have held senior roles in business. They provide practical training that can be immediately transferred to the workplace which develops the skills and confidence of delegates.
