DELIVERY OF SERVICES

Our work can be delivered in a variety of ways  offering a flexible approach to our clients.  

Delivery can be:  
In-house face to face,  On-line 'live' via Zoom, 
by Webinar, Presentation or Speech.
Consultancy work is on a case by case basis

In-house face to Face Training


We believe face to face training to be the gold standard in delivery, due to the benefits it offers participants over other forms of training re: learning and personal development.  The skill of the trainer, especially in mixed ability groups is not just in delivering the material, but also in rapport building, interpersonal skills and intuition, allowing attendees to learn and grow together by creating a relaxed yet focused session.  

We do this by involving everyone, but in particular by:
a) drawing out the quiet ones
b) encouraging those who don't like speaking in public
c) enthusing those who don't want to be on the training
d) tempering those who are over exuberant or dominant
e) dealing quickly with any politics or undercurrent

Method of training
We prefer a 'stand and deliver' method of training backed up with high quality training packs and participant interactionCourses can be tailored to include 'in-house' messages and  culture, linking to your organisation's policies and procedures.   It is our policy not to issue training packs for non-attendees or issue certificates to participants who arrive significantly late and / or leave early.

Venue & Refreshments
We are happy to deliver training at your premises or hired venue.  We find Boardroom or Cabaret style seating at tables works best, but we can adapt to suit any venue.  The client is responsible for providing refreshments at the training and ensuring premises and equipment they provide, complies with all relevant health and safety requirements.

Travel & Accommodation
We charge travel costs over 80 miles (preferring to use public transport).  Where necessary, we travel the day before the training staying in 'reasonable quality' accommodation (subject to availability and local conditions) to ensure arrival at the venue in time to deliver the training.

Covid-19 Adjustments

Face to face training is subject to Covid restrictions / guidance applicable at the time.  

  •  You should notify us at least 24 hours in advance of training (any Covid-19 symptoms on-site, or not)  
  • Post-lockdown delivery, we are happy to comply with all reasonable requests
  • Training packs are made up in advance and will be produced 'Covid compliant'  




Online Training (using Zoom) 

Most of our courses can be delivered Online ‘Live’ (but not all).  Although there are numerous benefits to clients in delivering training this way, there are potential draw backs which can hinder matters, therefore, we set certain protocols and etiquette for both parties to follow.   

Our Online training delivery will be adjusted to reflect distance working and our Day courses can be run as two half days to make it more manageable if you prefer.  Courses can be tailored to include your 'in-house' messages and culture, linking to your policies and procedures, subject to discussion.
