About us

UCan Training was founded in 2007 after our founder, Sharon Jackson, realised there was a gap in the market for bespoke training and coaching programmes aimed at helping people achieve their full potential. So she created a niche company, specialising in delivering just that for individual clients and organisations. Nothing is off the shelf – we design and deliver specifically for you.

“I’m passionate about helping people conquer their fears and achieve their goals. I believe it’s within our grasp to determine where we will be in one, two, five or even twenty years time – we just have to make the right choices. And this is as true for individuals as it is for small business owners or major corporations.”

Fabulous goal setting workshop run by Sharon

“I attended a fabulous goal setting workshop run by Sharon. I found the workshop to be hugely rewarding both on the day and also afterwards with regular contact from both Sharon and the other delegates. The workshop was delivered in bite sized chunks which gave me the confidence to be both realistic and optimistic in my goal setting.”
