about onno

onno is owned and managed by

Kellie Noon MA, BSc+MSc, FHEA, MITI

Having completed her undergraduate degree abroad in a second language, whilst studying a third, and living in a foreign country and navigating life in a language that wasn't her own, Kellie knows how to communicate and negotiate linguistic and cultural barriers


Kellie has spent 15 years delivering training in

language and intercultural communications,

preparing clients for assessment, and

working on international development

Her career started in Spain where she ran a study centre collaborating with high-profile clients across the peninsular. She then moved back to the UK to establish a language training centre in Manchester


This led to work with a range of clients and organisations as well as international collaborations and projects, focusing on areas including intercultural communications, inclusive recruitment and EDI

Kellie also works as an assessor for the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and regularly collaborates with organisations

including the charity RefuAid 

What do our clients say about us?

Kellie takes the time to really understand your business and needs in order to personalise her approachto what will help you the most. Her knowledge of international business relations is unmatched and she really opened my eyes to how small changes in communication can make a real difference. We work with customers all over the world and it can be difficult to switch from one culture to another when writing emails and calling clients. 


I truly believe the experience will help deepen relationships with companies we have struggled to relate to in the past providing us with more opportunities. Definitely recommend to any SME's looking to widen their horizons! 

Stedfast Inc., October 2020

We absolutely loved working with Kellie and Onno Training for our Managing Across Cultures Webinar event.

The event covered cross-cultural communications and management and allowed our participants to gain a true insight into cultural understanding and the importance of communication skills in employability thanks to Kellie's expert knowledge.


The event was extremely successful and we look forward to hosting more online sessions in the future.

Pagoda Projects, August 2020

LiNCHigher have worked with Kellie on some great projects, but mainly with supporting schools, and their teachers and staff, with how best to work with cultural minority students, particularly around raising their aspirations!


Kellie is engaging, informative, and a pleasure to work with, and here at LiNCHigher, we cannot wait to do more in the next academic year!
