Her company, Judi Grace Consultancy offers training for companies, ranging from interpersonal to communication and assertiveness skills to strategic planning and teambuilding.

Judi uses an accelerated learning approach and all her training is participatory. She works with teams who are experiencing difficulties working together and her communication skills are used to great advantage in the form of coaching and mentoring.
