The Directory

The PIEs trainers and consultants directory is a listings page for all those able to offer support of whatever kind to other agencies and services, on a freelance or contracted basis.

All those listed here are registered PIElink members, to provide a minimum of quality assurance and to weed out spam.

Other than that there is no attempt to approve or endorse any particular offer or approach, and all listings are strictly in alphabetical order, by the surname of the individual.

Those seeking to engage a trainer or consultancy services must satisfy themselves that the service offered is suitable for them, and the terms acceptable.

Anyone wishing to be listed here must contact the editor, either at the point of registering, or by direct email.

You can also download a version of this list, in the form of a table - which makes it easier to search by eye for the particular features you need. The table is formatted as an Excel spreadsheet: HERE
