The Energy industry is going through a rapid transition as companies work towards delivering a more sustainable world. Recognising the opportunities for change and growth, Daniel McAteer, Vice President of Energy for Worley in Aberdeen put forward key individuals from his projects team to take part in the Rainmaker course, which focused on business growth.

The brief

The Worley Aberdeen projects team has a long-standing history of running large projects effectively. The workshop focused on relationship building and business development.

The solution

The Rainmaker Programme comprises:

  • Pre-work online
  • Intensive masterclasses
  • Deep-dive workshops
  • Check-in business growth workshop (one month after masterclasses)
  • Online surveys and feedback
  • The KWC Wonderwall, full of supporting resources to encourage ongoing reading and reflection

Research shows that for learning to be fully embedded and tangible results to be achieved, a combination of reflection, application, and learning over time is required. This enables individuals to achieve Kirkpatrick Level Four i.e. demonstrative results (ROI)

  • ‘Great enthusiasm, worked well with the team, and encouraged engagement’

  • We have been proactive with known contacts and there is more focus on tangible outcomes from meetings
