Training is a difficult management skill that most of us are left to pick up organically. This means most of us pick up bad habits. Join us to learn how to make learning a natural and productive part of your team’s working lives.

Do you want to help people understand concepts faster and retain knowledge longer? Our one-day workshop will give you the confidence to deliver excellent training and weave learning into everyday work.

Eliminate boring training forever

When it comes to learning, gathering people in a meeting room to watch someone present bullet points for an hour is counterproductive. Yet it’s what most agencies do with their structured learning time. Why not provide learning experiences that engage people and motivate them to improve their work instead?

Join Liton and Emily to learn some of the core techniques that make Henshall Centre’s learning experiences so effective and enjoyable - then take them back to your agency to make your in-house training better.

What to expect

You will learn to use accelerated learning methods and practice learning-design techniques. You’ll do this through exercises, games, discussion and guidance from a learning expert. By the time you leave the session, you’ll have a set of processes and templates to try out at work.

The group is limited to eight people with similar training and management challenges, from the world of PR and communications agencies. The course is for anybody involved in managing and training others, whether formally or informally. 

How about swapping bullet points for game cards? We'll show you how.
