Our history with the Institute of Groundsmanship is long and varied. From providing funding assistance to performance coaching, delivering projects and presenting at their conferences, wctd has worked alongside the Institute for a number of years.

Performance coaching

wctd provided performance coaching for the CEO, Directors and staff. As part of an onging commitment to CPD and to review and improve communication and team working, we worked with the entire staff team, the Directors and CEO to develop key strategic aims and individual action plans.

YIOG Board

Over the last 3 years, we have provided training for Directors, staff and the Young Institute Board Directors (pictured) including presentations skills, coaching skills, management and leadership and negotiation and influencing.

 "I would thoroughly recommend wctd limited who have on several occasions delivered executive training and development on behalf of the Institute of Groundsmanship. Steve Woolland has been thoroughly professional in his approach drawing many positive comments from those attending the various courses ad training days offered. We will use wctd in the future and have no hesitation in providing a positive statement and reference." 


The Heritage Lottery Fund Project 'Get Into Grounds'


We are proud to have begun the process of sourcing the funding for this project, going on to making the succesful application and then project managing every aspect of the research and development that resulted in an exhibition and some amazing comparison data.

The project compares turf management techniques between the 1948 and 2012 Olympic Games, both held in London.  The presentation and embedded video explains more.

We have assisted the IOG with the development of a youth development strategy from 2011 to 2015 called "Get into Grounds" and facilitated the delivery of this with the IOG Young Board of Directors.
