Founded in 2002, at Purple Griffon we pride ourselves with being an independent SME in the IT Service Management Training and Consultancy market. Being flexible (along with a keen eye for the current prices in the market!), we aim to provide you, the customer, with the solution to address your issues.
Whether this be training your staff in the latest offerings in IT Service Management (ITIL® to you and me), Project Management techniques (PRINCE2®, APMP®, MoP® to name just a few), or providing an expert consultant to help you address those issues that you never seem to have time to address, we will always aim to provide you with the appropriate answer or solution. All of our trainers and consultants have worked at the coal face and have years of experience to call upon in order to work out the appropriate solution for you. Remember, ‘Best Practice’ means just that – the solutions we will provide are based on somebody (possibly many!), having already experienced the pain, and as a result, worked out a number of solutions that can take advantage of, but without the pain!!
Feel free to talk to us about your needs or requirements, whether it be a training or consultancy query, as we are more than happy to provide assistance or direction, and you never know, it may be the beginning of a long relationship!

What our customers say about us
“I recently undertook the PRINCE2 Practitioner Course after completing the PRINCE2 Foundation in March 2014. I have now passed the PRINCE2 Practitioner and would like to credit Gary McGaffney with the way he makes the material come to life and a difficult subject easy to digest and translate to the real world – he is very helpful and supportive. This course will help me in my current role of PMO Lead for Digital Policing, especially around Risks / Issues / Exceptions / Business Cases.”
“I have just started a new job as School Business Manager and have already used my learning from the Human Resource Management module several times. My attendance on the course was seen at my interview as a sign of dedication to my move into a new sphere of employment and I also believe that the Accounting for Non-Accountants course was a deciding factor in my appointment.”
