John Trimbos studied law at St. John's College, Oxford and qualified as a solicitor in 1988. John started his professional life with the Treasury Solicitor's Department, before moving to the private sector in the early 1990s.

In the mid 1990s he began lecturing at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice before moving back to the City. He has worked with the top City law firms as a transactional lawyer and latterly as an in-house training manager.

In recent years he took the decision to specialise in skills and management training for professional service firms: Lawyers, Engineers and Accountants. His many professional clients recommend his courses as interactive, practical and engaging.

Throughout my studying years, both at Oxford and at law school, I got the impression that a lot of tutors really knew their stuff but had no idea how to communicate it effectively. In the corporate training world there are also loads of trainers who simply do chalk-and-talk, whereas some of us produce properly interactive courses with lots of exercises and case studies which help the learning to stick in the mind.

John is a qualified solicitor and well suited to our business. As consultant engineers our businesses need to produce technical reports to a high, consistent level for bids and qualifications. John has always been a very reliable and professional member of our external providers.
