McGarry Associates exist to provide engaging, evidence based and inspirational people development solutions for business around the world


Pushing Boundaries

We believe that continual learning is the way human beings really thrive, that’s why we continually develop our workshops to reflect new scientific developments in the understanding of human behaviour. We do not deliver the same old management stuff that has being doing the rounds for years. We do work with trusted like minded associates both in the UK, Europe and Asia to deliver powerful interventions that make a difference to our participants. Our workshops are currently available in English and German.
