Harold Graycar

“My courses are all about the important numbers that drive business: I try to make learning interesting and to help participants discover the strengths of their own capabilities.”

Harold Graycar is an executive with over 25 years’ experience in technical, commercial and general management roles, such as advising corporate and government clients on project funding and business development models.

His ability to communicate and work with personnel from non-technical backgrounds makes him a valuable contributor to multi-disciplinary projects, and an effective business trainer, focusing on how to increase productivity with hands-on numerate and information presentation skills.


"Learning and development had not been created as a continuous activity. Training was often one off interventions with the impact difficult to measure. Filtered has helped us change that in a short period of time. The cultural change it has driven in terms of reinforcing an expectation of continuous learning at all levels is the biggest achievement to me."
