welcome to azesta-logo

the experiential learning company

At azesta we like to do things a little bit differently. For us, our prime focus is making sure that we use our unique way of working experientially to ensure that we get the best possible results. We believe that people learn best through experience, exploring, creating, connecting and interacting with the world and each other, not through sitting and looking at slides!

We integrate organisational values and objectives and work outputs into an engaging, inspiring, active programme.

who we are

We at Azesta are a Yorkshire based company that has been delivering great learning experiences for over a decade. We are truly flexible, creative, open and caring.

Our facilitators connect with people brilliantly, live our values and are friendly, down to earth and experienced. Our facilitators are supported by a highly efficient and friendly team of event organisers in the office. They are absolutely meticulous in their approach to organising your programme and attention to detail is key.

what we do

We help your teams and leaders become enthusiastic, engaged and effective. We do this through designing learning interventions with a twist of individuality, action, pace and excitement. We specialise in interpersonal skill development and lasting behavioural change.

We individually design, deliver and evaluate each and every active and exciting workshop, seminar, assessment or development centres. There’s no such thing as a delegate on our programmes, only an active, highly engaged participant.

how we work

We start by working to understand what will really make a difference in your organisation. We go the extra mile to find out what you and your organisation are all about using high quality questions and diagnostic tools.

Once we are clear about what needs to be achieved, we delight in designing something just for you. We skilfully blend together the learning experiences that will best meet your objectives and result in lasting behavioural change in your organisation.

Our programmes combine experiential learning, expert facilitation, active reviews and up-to-date business thinking in a lively, innovative way. The result? Learning with a twist of individuality, action, pace and excitement and learning that lasts.

Our flexibility, creativity, openness and the way we really care about every individual and every organisation are what make us unique.

Fantastic course. We came to Azesta as individuals and left thinking and working together as a team.
