Ralph Moody - founder

Ralph Moody

Ralph believes that lifelong learning is precisely that and should not be limited by age or perceived ability.  He has a belief that all of us have the potential to do anything if we put our mind to it. He believes that armed with the skills, knowledge and attitude we can all perform to the highest standards. Moreover, he believes that limiting belief is what holds the majority of people back and that  with the right coaching, mentoring and training we can all achieve anything.

With over 30 years of training experience, he specialises in trainer, management and leadership development.  He is an international training consultant with expertise in development, design, delivery and management of bespoke training programmes and soft skill fields.  Furthermore, he is a renowned motivational speaker within the area of personal and professional development and he is recognised for his extraordinary enthusiasm for training.  

Ralph is an accredited master trainer and takes massive pride in seeing delegates whom he has trained go onto bigger and better things.  He has studied adult human behaviour over the past 30 years and has applied these skills into each and every session he delivers.  He has personally designed and developed all the Train the Trainer and Management courses that Target offers, something he is immensely proud of. 

Before creating Target Training, Ralph had a successful career in the Royal Air Force.  In the RAF he undertook a variety of operational and management duties including roles as a training manager and air defence specialist. Latterly, he led a highly successful accreditation team that regularly gained plaudits from awarding bodies and regulatory authorities on areas of good practice in the fields of assessment and training.

As founder of Target Training Associates, Ralph has been actively involved in the design and delivery of training to a worldwide audience across many sectors. Additionally, he has developed and delivered management and workforce development programmes that have been adopted as a prerequisite in key management roles. His testimonials are legendary, and his passion and enthusiasm for training have been commented on within each session he has delivered.
