About Us

Training for Results was started over twenty years ago by Rosie Barfoot to provide leadership and management training courses. The focus is on development that achieves the best in people. In 2006, her husband Ken joined her. Together they form a powerful partnership bringing different practical experience, knowledge and strengths to the business. With the ability to offer coaching, mentoring and profiling tools, they provide the complete training service. Feedback from participants is that Rosie and Ken deliver with a unique passion and practicality that inspires people to make a difference.

The emphasis is on training that brings about successful change, which is in line with the goals of your business. Every encouragement will be given to provide effective pre and post course briefings to ensure the maximum benefit is gained from the training and the identified changes are implemented. Courses are being developed continuously to meet the needs of each client. Trusted associate tutors are brought in if they cannot personally meet your requirement.

What I bring is 25 years in Sales & Marketing at Weetabix, TwiningsOvo, Dorset Cereals, Penotti and Amy’s Kitchen; of which 20 years was in International sales.
My success was in growing business, branding very successfully, developing market strategy and joint business plans direct with retail and third party partners. This incorporated sales and marketing, travelling, working remotely, moving home, learning and having fun in the process.
I have also been very fortunate to be able to be there to see, help and experience my family grow and develop.
Now I have set up my own import and export company Green Shoots UK, which aims to nurture brands overseas. I like being commercial, engaged and pragmatic in my approach.

I am an operations professional with over 25 years experience; gained across a range of industrial sectors including food, marine, automotive and aerospace. This has given me a strong and proven track record of delivering business improvements; ranging from operational efficiency enhancement to strategic growth and development.
As a consultant to the Meat and Livestock Commission, I set up and established a process improvement programme for the Red Meat Industry Forum, which included delivery of MasterClass activities focussed on operational improvements. I also delivered Change Agent Training to ensure ongoing sustainability.
Having recently set up my own company, I now work with businesses to realise their growth and improvement potential and support in the delivery of key projects.
