Trainer Development

We’ve been invited to a discussion in two weeks’ time with a key client where we’ll be looking at a bespoke personal development opportunity for a number of their Trainers working abroad.

We’ll be using this week to prepare a discussion document containing content options and the process whereby we’ll establish their individual development needs.


Preparation: Social Media Workshop

This week, we’re in ‘prep-mode’, working with The Career Practice creating the detail for our forthcoming ‘Social Media’ workshop. The one-day event, to be held in London, is aimed specifically at those who want to increase their chances of securing their ‘perfect job’ using the major social-networking sites.

Design: Discovering and Using Social Networking Workshop

I’m in ‘design mode’ this week, collaborating with The Career Practice to design and co-deliver a one-day Workshop, with specific emphasis on using them for job-searching.

If you want to know the similarities and differences between what’s on offer from the major social networking providers, this could be for you! The Workshop will be a ‘hands-on’ day with plenty of opportunity to get to grips with the technology.

Workshops are starting in September.

Final Preparations: Learning Theory

We’re making final preparations here this week, for our ‘Learning Theory’ Workshop in two weeks’ time. The event is aimed at product experts looking to improve their ability to train others. This is the first of two Workshops – the second, being run in Sweden in May, will focus on practising their training skills in front of a live audience (much better than a dead audience!)

Development: Training Skills & Workshop Portfolio

Trainer Skills
This week, we are finalising our preparations for the first in a series of management development workshops covering training skills for a key client’s product support managers. The Workshop will be split into two parts – two days and three days with a six-week period of consolidation between the two. The two day Workshop will look at the theory of learning (how and why people learn, why they sometimes don’t. Part two covers training delivery best practice and how to measure the success of training.
