Our powerful solutions are delivered by an expert team of learning and development professionals but is mostly Natalie Houlton, a people development specialist with over 25 years of experience.

Natalie is passionate about making learning unique, personal, and fun yet focused and purposeful.  Yellow Duck Development was founded from a frustration with the typical dry, boring cookie-cutter training courses.   

That’s where we’re different. Our courses are engaging, highly interactive and very practical so that learning can be put into practice in the ‘real world’ straightaway.
