The Red Rock International team have been involved in people development since 1993. We began working in Qatar in 2012 and have had a permanent and growing presence since 2014. Our team goes from strength to strength and we are enjoying working with a diverse range of organisations across all sectors of the Qatari economy.
Red Rock International was founded by Nick and Robert and soon after joined by Nader. Together, they have gone on to be leaders of an organisation with more than 30 employees. By influencing attitudes, developing skills and building relationships we have helped tens of thousands of people to live better lives at work and beyond.
Along side our team in Qatar our offices in the UK, Egypt, Morocco and Korea enable us to deliver culturally relevant training to a global audience.
