Energy Training and Business Advisory Holmwood Consulting Ltd

Energy Training and Business Advisory Holmwood Consulting Ltd

Kahl Consultants have finished website revamp and online promotion for our client Holmwood Consulting.  An energy training and business advisor company based in Europe.

Holmwood Consulting Limited is an international provider of top industry training and consultancy in LNG, Natural Gas and Energy offering independent business advice, management consulting, executive briefing and energy training.

As a focused LNG, Natural Gas, Oil and broader Energy consultancy, Holmwood Consulting Limited with its in-depth knowledge of the global energy markets and developments delivers independent strategic consultancy, key market analysis, executive briefing and training services.


LNG, Natural Gas & Energy

Holmwood Consulting Limited delivers knowledge transfer through objective advice, training and consulting to address the real and differing business issues that clients are facing around the world helping them to resolve their unique challenges. Beyond just informed third party comment, we actively seek to give our clients the real information required to take the critical decisions that move businesses forwards. It helps its clients achieve these clear business goals by flexibly applying the Energy and broader Industry expertise of its principal, and selectively utilizing the wide experience and extensive knowledge base of our Associates, who have worked for many years as Directors, senior managers and industry business professionals.

Holmwood Consulting operates in primary areas:

1.     Industry Training:

The primary service provided by Holmwood Consulting Limited is Capability Building, Knowledge Transfer and Executive Briefing for international client companies – both direct contracted and via third-party providers. We have an established international reputation and are widely involved with training and capability building on commercial, markets, trading and technical aspects across the whole of the LNG supply chain, and in the oil and natural gas industries. Building on the core energy industry knowledge and proven business skills of its principal and a select network of top experts, we continuously endeavour to develop new courses and to lead market requirements across LNG and broader energy. The involvement doesn’t usually stop at the end of any knowledge transfer activity as much of our activity is repeat business with clients and delegates continuing to seek advice from us well after the training has finished.

Holmwood Consulting creates customised energy training, provides key executive briefings and gives in-company courses reflecting both specified needs and our areas of expertise to develop or update our clients’ staff. Classroom training gives participants the opportunity to interact with a live instructor and other trainees and, we believe embeds key learning more effectively. Such tailored, instructor led courses are designed to be interactive in nature and can be industry knowledge or business skill based. There really is no educational system provided that is worth more than learning from the experience of a 30-year veteran in the industry.

Holmwood Consulting Limited’s knowledge transfer occurs primarily via two types of training provision:

(i) In-company courses, Executive Briefings and Workshops

(ii) Public courses and Seminars

Holmwood Consulting Limited seeks to ensure that all such developed courses emphasize practical learning by encompassing interactive sessions, current market case studies, syndicate study exercises and, where appropriate, challenging debate to ensure a high level of attendee participation and knowledge transfer. Delegates are typically drawn from NOCs, IOCs, natural gas companies, LNG shipping companies, trading organizations, Regulators and Government Ministries, equipment & service companies and professional service firms, as well as financial institutions that serve the Oil & Gas business.

2.     Business Advisory and Consulting

Holmwood Consulting provides a distinctive approach by active involvement in the global business, challenging the conventional industry norms and in some cases forecasting trends. Change and volatility are perhaps the only constants in the global energy marketplace today, but change should not be feared as it brings opportunity for many industry players. Small in size, Holmwood Consulting Limited has proven ability to deliver real and lasting value with a growing reputation built around providing top quality, in-depth, objective delivery and ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction.

It also increasingly makes sense to have a knowledgeable external third-party involved as a “Trusted Adviser” or “Client Friend” in natural gas and LNG projects, in much the same way as using an architect often ends up saving money on building projects, even the comparatively small ones.

Holmwood Consulting Limited is wholly focused on the energy sector and welcomes the opportunity to discuss client issues and propose a delivery approach to assignments using an appropriate combination of our Principal and Associates. This allows us to effectively provide the best possible approach at key levels within an organization covering typically:

  •                Strategic: Gas Market Studies, New Market Entry, Development of LNG
  •                Tactical: Gas Market Review and Analysis, LNG Exports & Imports, Commercial & Pricing, Trading and Logistics
  •          Operational: Commercial and Contractual Management, Specification and Evaluation of support systems/ procedures

Holmwood Consulting welcomes the opportunity to discuss client issues and propose an approach for the development of the required insights.

Oriental Medicine

Oriental Medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western Medicine. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes. They called this energy qi (pronounced Chee).

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a medical technique of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into particular points on the body, with the aim of restoring health and wellbeing. Acupuncture is thought to have originated in China and is most commonly associated with TCM. TCM comprises a range of traditional medical practices that developed over several thousand years including theories, diagnosis and treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage. TCM is a form of so-called Oriental Medicine which includes other traditional East Asian medical systems such as traditional Japanese and Korean Medicine.

TCM theory asserts that processes of the human body are interrelated and in constant interaction with the environment. Signs of disharmony help the TCM practitioner understand, treat and prevent illness and disease.

Japanese Acupuncture

Acupuncture came to Japan 1,300 years ago from China through Korea, and has been refined to become a whole independent system of practice. Differing from Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncturists use thin, fine needles with insertion tubes that are very gentle and relatively painless. While Chinese acupuncturists would ask their patients whether or not they felt the strong needling sensation which is often unbearable to American patients, Japanese acupuncturists cause minor pain to the patient as the doctor would “feel” the qi themselves.

Japanese acupuncture is also different from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture in point selection. While TCM acupuncture chooses treatment points by herbal diagnosis (also called “herbalized acupuncture” by Bob Flaws). Japanese acupuncture chooses points purely by classical energetic principles of yin, yang and five elements.


The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s ability to treat over 43 common disorders including Gastrointestinal Disorders, Urogenital Disorders, Gynecological Disorders, Respiratory Disorders, Disorders of the Bones, Muscles, Joints and Nervous System, Circulatory Disorders, Emotional and Psychological Disorders, Addictions, Eye-Ear-Nose and Throat Disorders as well as supportive therapy for other chronic and painful disorders.

Acupuncture for infants and children

Needleless treatment is primarily used for young children. Studies have shown that it is useful for treating jaundice in newborns. Infants and babies can also be successfully treated for colic, earache, ADHD, temper tantrums, crying at night, bedwetting, asthma, allergies, eczema and skin rashes.
