Training workshops

Our most popular training workshop at the moment is Speed Read Your Way to Success – an event which aims to help participants to read faster with increased comprehension and much better recall. Many people are really surprised at what they can achieve!

Recent comments show how much people enjoy this material and how useful they find it:

Learning design

We have completely redesigned our workshop on ‘Effective Minute Writing’. This is an exciting opportunity for participants to learn how to tackle the vital role of minute taking with skill and confidence. We can run this event on a client’s own premises or in a conference venue. We are happy to produce a bespoke version of this event, using your own course content, minutes styles and report templates.

Our new workshop programme features a specially-made training film with realistic meeting scenarios. Contact us for costs and availability.
