Who we are
Our team calls upon a rich history of experience as learning & development specialists, creative designers, behavioural psychologists and HR consultants.
With over 20 years' experience, we are experts in making people happy at work.
The Makers behind our madness
Relationships are important to Aaron and he likes to build on these through an empathetic approach to create friendship & trust. He has an extensive background in coaching & facilitation resulting in developing some industry firsts and fantastic customer experience results.
In his spare time you can either find him on the basketball court, borrowing friends dogs for a walk, or in the kitchen cooking up a storm with a nice bottle of red from his native homeland Australia.
Business Development Manager
Anaya is passionate about communication, and how the creative delivery of key messages can transform the people culture of any organisation. She has an extensive background in consultancy, learning and development and client liaison. Anaya is also interested in all things holistic, particularly nutrition (Marcus put the biscuits away!), which she regularly recommends to team members. In her spare time Anaya loves being in her garden, growing all things pretty and edible.
Marcus is a creative at heart and likes to help people find ways to connect with their own creativity in whatever form it takes. Having worked in coaching, training and design for a number of years, he is well versed in bringing learning to life in memorable and innovative ways, making it last far beyond the initial experience. Outside of the office, you'll most often find him with his head in a book or adding to his collection of houseplants - or 'indoor jungle' as is might be more aptly named.
Sales & Marketing Consultant
Latoya loves all things social, and with many years of working in retail and hospitality, she has an enthusiasm for ensuring client and customer experience is the best every time. She loves a good book and is almost definitely out buying another one to add to her ‘library’ or trying out a new spot to eat in Brighton when she's out of the office.
Chris is passionate about people and their capabilities. He believes that human connection can make any workplace more effective. His extensive background in the learning and development industry has seen him work with some of the world's most recognisable brands. In his spare time, Chris enjoys binge watching Netflix (mostly Schitt's Creek on repeat) and exploring everything Brighton has to offer.
Learning Consultant - Intern
Lily is a student at The University of Sussex and has a passion for creating engaging learning which allows everyone to achieve their full potential. She combines her knowledge of education theory with her experience in planning and delivering lessons in order to produce sessions which have the learner at the centre. Outside of studying, Lily spends her time rehearsing for competitions with the university dance team and drinking tea.
David has a great eye for detail, keeping the wheels of Acceler8 turning behind the scenes. His background is in retail and aviation, which gives him great insight into customer experience. Perhaps more importantly, he is the guardian of the office gin bar and makes sure we all find time to have fun.
Elsewhere, David is never without his shadow Bo, who is at the heart of the Acceler8 team (usually asleep) and rarely without a pot of tea.
Chairman (Basket based)
Bo is the warm heart of the office. A fan of belly rubs, long walks and biscuits, you'll either find him tucked up under his desk, following his favourite human around or demanding scratches from one of the team. Rescued from the streets of Portugal when he was a puppy, Bo now has a wonderful life in the UK with Chris and David.
