  • No more boring training
  • No more sat in a stuffy room
  • No more hours upon hours of dull Powerpoint slides
  • No more being sat down, doodling away your afternoon

Training should be fun! Training should be invigorating! Training should be participatory!

I love delivering training. I love how each course is different because each group is different. What I love even more is that people who have been on my courses love my training.

My courses are interactive, effective and fun – who ever learnt anything on a boring training course? My training packages are run as half-day, day long or longer duration workshops, they are designed for between 8 and 12 people and are priced per package.

See the below for the training packages I currently offer.

A la carte Training

Training can cost a lot of money and so it is only right that you demand solutions that meet your needs. No two clients are the same, so why should I, as a training provider, tell you what you need?

You want flexibility, you want to understand what impact the training will have and you want value for money. That is why I am offering an “a la carte” training service.

You decide the impact – You tell me what impact you want the training to have and we agree the right measures to allow you to track whether the training is having the desired effect.

You decide the topics – You tell me the areas of strength and weakness in your managers and tell me the areas you want covering

You decide the format – Full day, half day, online, work-based, off-site, you decide the format that suits your business the best.

I design and deliver the training. I design the in work activities and the measurement activities.

The things I insist on are:

  • Leadership is a set of behaviours based on a high degree of emotional intelligence
  • Managers use eldership to inspire and motivate their teams.

 

I design training that helps people develop their emotional intelligence and allows them to grow their leadership abilities.

 

Fixed Price Menu

For those of you who operate within a budget or who have a defined need, I offer have a set of per-designed courses covering Project Management, Time Management, Management Skills and Leadership Skills.

These are usually one day or half day workshops that are highly interactive and fun and are accompanied by clear notes to support the attendees after once they get back into the workplace.

Training Courses designed to fit you

Training is only part of the solution, but it pays to make sure it is a part of the solution that works. That means selecting a provider who understands how to delight his delegates, who understands the importance of being involved when learning and who understands that any training course has to be linked to the day job.

Training courses should be used as part of an overall personal development plan. Training, plus coaching plus work based activity help embed any learning much better than training courses alone.

That is why, for the bespoke training solutions, I work with you to agree the training outcomes you want to achieve and agree what measures we will use to assess whether we have been successful. Together, we plan the work based activities to ensure the attendees implement their learning straight away.

Bespoke training is priced on an individual basis.
