Learning and Development Consultancy Expands at Sheffield’s Fox Valley

23 May 2022

Sheffield training company, Live and Learn Consultancy Ltd, have expanded into new and larger offices at Fox Valley to deliver Public Open Training Courses.

Owner’s Lisa Kitchen and Jay Dhillon primarily set up Live and Learn Consultancy in 2010 specifically to enhance the skills and performance levels of employees across the UK & Europe.

When asked about the expansion of their head office in Fox Valley, Lisa said:

“It’s a very exciting time for us as a business and we’re thrilled to be expanding our operation & team along with providing more training delivery options for our diverse range of clients. Organisations can now send their team directly to us to train and coach.”

“Our goal was to deliver powerful training solutions to empower people at all levels. We therefore created Live and Learn from our spare bedrooms back in 2010 after being made redundant from our previous roles. We turned a difficult moment into a positive outcome.

After opening our first office at Fox Valley in 2016, and thanks to a strong team, we have gone from strength to strength and we’re now really looking forward to this next chapter.”

The expansion will create a 30-seat state of the art training room allowing the firm to host training sessions for the first time at their headquarters. 

The training room will be equipped with the latest technology including (VR headsets) virtual reality to make all training sessions highly interactive and provide experiential learning for all people.

Live and Learn offer over 150 training courses ranging from 2 hour power sessions, 1-day, 2 day & 12 day courses including leadership, management, HR, sales, customer service, wellbeing and more.    

Lisa added: “Since the pandemic companies have really focused on the skills of their teams and as a result, we have noticed a massive shift towards investment in training. Having the new training room allows us to rise to the challenge of matching that demand”.

Due to their expansion, the team at Live and Learn Consultancy Ltd are currently recruiting for two exciting roles. The two full time posts will work alongside 17 other team members as well as their beloved office dog, Poppy. 

They are due to launch their new training room, affectionately named ‘Poppy’s Room’, in late November 2022. 


The demand for space at Fox Valley has increased over the last year with people going back to working from the office. Anyone interested in renting office space at the centre should contact James Shepherd on or call 01226 360644.
