Since 1996 I have designed and facilitated business simulations for some of the world’s largest organisations across many industries.
I started Burley Consulting in 2008, because I saw that bespoke business simulations are the most effective way to develop people's business acumen.
I am proud that we have such a great team, who understand complex businesses and work with me to create realistic and compelling business simulations, that capture the imagination of our participants and engage them in the business they work in.
“Mark’s energetic engagement and sharp intellect resulted in a stimulating and valuable learning experience that was in high demand across the company.”

“We have incorporated a tailored business simulation from Burley Consulting into our global Ageas Leadership Program designed for our future talents. The feedback from participants was excellent and it allowed the Ageas Academy to leverage the business simulation as best practice.”

People learn best by making mistakes. You don’t learn to ride a bike solely from instructions, you master the skill through trial and error and taking a few falls along the way. I certainly did!
In business I’ve always believed in the power of learning-by-doing as an effective tool to develop business acumen. Research has confirmed the effectiveness of this form of experiential learning.
Imagine the advantage of a realistic environment where participants can make decisions, face consequences and learn without real world risks. This concept has driven my passion for what we do at Burley Consulting.
Over the years we have developed strong relationships with a wide range of experienced associates who we can draw on to ensure that we build the best business simulation workshop experience for you.
We would love to hear about your current development needs or business challenges. We could help you find a solution.
