Collaboration at it's Best!
Starting her career in Education as a Teacher in North London, Teresa subsequently diversified into Youth Training, as Area Training Manager for London at YMCA Training Services, where she was instrumental in developing the commercial training division for YMCA. It was here that she completed her Diploma in Marketing and designed and developed Supervisory and Management Training for BP International Group Training, M&S, Boots, Texaco and Prudential Bache. After three years Teresa launched Kennedy Scott with a contract from BP Group Training to deliver YTS training.
Teresa’s passion and drive for excellence and innovation through teamwork, whilst keeping the customer at the heart of all they do has helped achieve an excellent reputation.
