ConcorsCo (Consultancy, Coaching and Research Services Company) was founded by Fiona Wiltshier MA (Hons) MSc and specialises in offering customised NVivo training, consultancy and coaching. Recognising that a focused approach often helps people learn faster and more effectively, we tailor our training to an individual or team's needs.
We offer a variety of different programs ranging from short introductory presentations that offer an overview of the software, to one-on-one or small group coaching and consultancy, to large one or two day group workshops where everyone learns together. For more details on these please see our programs and services page, or contact us for more information.
Fiona personally delivers most of the training herself as this is what she loves most, she does however also work closely with a number of associates so as to broaden the scope of the services the company can offer. Though based in Bristol, England the company delivers programs throughout the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australasia regions. All our associates are both experts in NVivo and experienced qualitative researchers as we believe that an understanding of the research process itself is fundamental to being able to most effectively teach other researchers how best to use NVivo.
An experienced qualitative researcher and NVivo trainer, Fiona has worked on qualitative research projects in academic, government and commercial contexts. She has also taught thousands of researchers to use NVivo in over 20 countries around the world ranging from Macau and Japan to Ethiopia and Abu Dhabi, and of course closer to home, throughout the UK and Scandinavia.
From 2003, Fiona worked for QSR International (the developers of NVivo) for almost ten years, firstly in Australia as their Research Consultant where she co-founded the Training and Research Consultancy area for QSR worldwide, before moving back over to Europe as QSR's Training and Research Consultancy Regional Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. She is currently one of only around 20 QSR Platinum Certified Trainers worldwide.
In her role as consultant and trainer Fiona utilises both her background as a qualitative researcher and her extensive worldwide experience as a trainer of NVivo to offer expert training through the range of programs and services offered by ConcorsCo. Through these she works alongside researchers to help them develop both their software skills and research projects using NVivo software. She customises the content depending on both the project and the context of the research, focusing on using her knowledge and skills to best help researchers get to know how to use qualitative software for their particular research projects, whether working in academic, government or commercial contexts.
