Increasingly, managers and leaders are called upon to speak at trade shows and conferences, train colleagues or run training sessions in-house.  It could be a short presentation at induction training, or a more substantial session to upskill your team to face a new challenge.

Our range of speaker training workshops will help you prepare entertaining presentations and design and deliver training material with confidence.  We’ll also show you how to facilitate team discussions and manage group learning dynamics.

TRAINING WORKSHOPS.

Business/Organisations: Skill up your HR and L&D teams and/or managers with responsibility for training others.  Delivered in person on your premises at a date and time to suit your business learning needs.

Individual Practitioners:  Enhance your speaking, facilitation, training or design skills by joining our ‘flipped & live virtual classroom’ with real-time online collaboration.  You get bite-size recordings of the theory before you attend the ‘live virtual class’ , then when we’re together online we have a lively interactive discussion and some practice.

*Please note: these are NOT webinars or passive online presentations where you just sit and listen they are professionally run virtual classes ~ as good as if you were there in person.

Knowing how to design traditional class-based training sessions is still very much in demand by many organisations.  This course teaches participants the key requirements, effective skills, models and knowledge that they need to design training that is factually correct and context specific.  You will also learn how to package your training in a way that is easily understood and makes the most impact upon your learners.

Effective online (e-learning) course design is so much more than just uploading video or class-based slides into a learning management system (LMS) and simple based upon the premise of memorisation through random testing.  For online (e-learning) courses to be successful and have the most impact upon real learning taking place, they need to be created using a robust, yet adaptable, framework that follows design principles and learning theory.  We also look at different online (e-learning) course delivery options and how to build branched e-learning scenarios.

The 70-20-10 phenomenon is not new, yet many still struggle to understand its principles and why flipping the way training is provided to a more blended approach can create amazing results that can be shared with the Board.  Learn how to make more effective use of technology, class and work situations throughout the learning, and how to involve and engage managers in the process.

Reach learners who can’t attend class-based training, or those who work shifts, by using webinars for training purposes. Done well, they can be just as effective, if not more so, than in-person training.

Storytelling can be powerful when used as part of a presentation or in public speaking to get really important messages across.  It can also be used in training sessions to help learners understand difficult concepts and remember complex information.  It allows trainers and facilitators to share their own personal anecdotes in a fun and interesting way, using an easy formula for story creation.

This is an exciting approach that will help you to cut your training budget, yet still increase the amount of learning that is obtained, and used, around the organisation, with even greater results.
