About Us

You may already have been on one of Laura Brown’s courses or know a colleague who has – so you may know what she does and that she has a very informative, and enjoyable delivery style. However, if you do not know Dr Laura Brown, she runs Laura Brown Training and Development which is a training consultancy which provides a very broad range of technical, management and soft skills courses, and training consultancy for the pharmaceutical industry, and which can be specifically customised to you and your organisations’ needs.
