Cat Noble, Director

Cat is passionate about communication and wants to help businesses convey the Green Message in an easy to understand way. A lot of renewable energy installers are excellent at what they do, but sometimes their communication with their customers is lacking.

If you are a business or school that wants to go green but you don’t know where to start then contact us and we can set you on the way to a greener tomorrow. There are often grants available to help you go green and we can explore these with you.

Cat has had her own Training Company in the past, offering training in communication, team building, management training and effective software use.

She said, “The Climate Emergency we find ourselves in means that we must make changes in our lives to secure a future for ourselves, our children and the planet as a whole”. We must help people to understand what actions they can take in their own lives to bring about a greener world.
