Ten years ago I had lunch with Margaret Ford and she outlined a new business idea to provide great leadership and management content to trainers, learning and organisational development professionals and GoodPractice was launched. We called this first product ‘Knowledge Bank’ and it was an immediate hit. Customers then began to ask us to develop solutions specifically for leaders and managers and this has become the main focus for GoodPractice over the last few years.

At the beginning of the year, we decided that the hundreds of Knowledge Bank customers who continued to rave about the quality of the content really deserved to have a dedicated team and that Knowledge Bank needed its own identity and focus. We asked Emily Bookless to take this on and along with James McLuckie and our team of Editors they’ve been working very hard on this project.

Today we relaunch Knowledge Bank as the Eden Tree with its own dedicated web site and a great new look interface for members. Its great to see the seed that Margaret planted all those years ago really maturing in it’s own right.

Eden Tree is all about the the quality of the 3000 resources and, if I say so myself, you won’t find better content anywhere. It really is the one place where a busy trainer, learning and organisational development professional can save hours of time as it contains everything needed for the most common types of learning intervention, including self-assessments, exercises, case studies, workshops and handouts.

Have a look and let me know what you think. I’d love to know what else we can do to make Eden Tree the best place for you to find the content you need.
