The Effective Trainer

We all know that the delivery of organisational results and objectives relies on having a well-trained, highly-skilled workforce. The engagement and ability of the team is what drives success and growth.

For many organisations and businesses, the use of external training providers is neither appropriate nor cost-efficient and the responsibility for training falls to Senior and Middle Managers, HR or subject matter experts. But who has trained the trainer?

Drawing on 30 years’ experience as a trainer and training manager, Deborah Clark, of Get Real Leadership, is delivering 2 sessions designed to help people who have taken on training roles or responsibilities, who know their subject matter but are not sure how to effectively pass that knowledge to others. Join Deborah and Cumbria Chamber of Commerce at Newton Rigg Conference Centre, Penrith 12th/19th June, 9:30 to 4:30 and equip your trainers to make their sessions awesome and deliver the return on investment that you need to see from your training budget.

To gain the maximum benefit from the sessions, delegates are required to attend both dates.
