                    Training For New Trainers



People who are selected to teach others are chosen for their knowledge. The unfortunate truth is that great knowledge doesn’t always transpire into great training ability. Teaching sessions loaded with too many complex slides and pitched incorrectly can produce very limited learning! This programme looks at how to ensure the knowledge in the trainers brain is properly transferred into the brains of the learners.


Trainees learn how to:

- plan and prepare effective training

- analyse learning styles & adapt the training

- pitch a training around how people learn best

- create an interactive & participative approach

- maintain trainees engagement

- ensure the learning is memorable

- utilise personal delivery techniques

- use questions to assess objectives are met

                    Media Awareness

                    & Handling Media Interviews 


A situation that causes enough people to comment on social networks can cause traditional media to pay attention too. This means that any organisation can receive unexpected media attention at any time. The only way to be prepared for such an event is to pro-actively prepare. This training can be designed to suit exact requirements.


Trainees learn how to:

- proactively plan for unexpected media attention

- avoid pitfalls when media contact occurs

- use media to positive effect

- handle press, radio, TV or internet interviews

- pitch messages for target audiences

- utilise questions to communicate key messages

- handle difficult questions effectively

- make a positive personal impression

- build good relations with media professionals

                    Leadership Communication Skills



The internet provides enormous amounts of information about leadership principals, key qualities and ways to be a great leader. However, this training focuses on one of the most essential core skills of good leadership - communication. Our ever more unpredictable and complex world requires leaders to share information with quick, strong, clear and precise communication - face to face, online and written word.


Trainees learn how to:

- maximise clarity in all communications

- manage complex information to create brief messages

- deliver persuasive & influential communications

- manage meetings to produce clear outcomes

- manage responses to ensure positive outcomes

- produce clear and influential business writing


…..and trainees discover how to apply the above to:

- presentations, webinars & webcasts

- letters, emails, reports & proposals

- meetings, performance reviews & interviews



An adapted version of this programme focuses on personal impact and influencing skills. Details can be provided on request.

The Difference

That Makes The Difference 


My promise to you is that all training is designed to your specific requirements whilst also catering for every trainees personal objectives.


I achieve this by keeping purely to my specialist subject areas and working with small groups of up to eight people - or providing one to one coaching. My approach is always positive, interactive and practical - offering plenty of practice to bring out individual strengths and talents. When I worked as an actor I always found the best directors were the ones that brought out the best of each performers strengths, enabling them to shine in their own right. I have always applied this principle to my training and found it really does make difference - creating over 25 years of successful results for an international portfolio of clients.




Fees can be adapted to match your project requirements and your budget. As a rough guide, one to one coaching usually starts at around £490 per day and £790 per day for group training. I can also quote for half day events, online and bitesize learning - just ask and I will always try my best to help.


I look forward to hearing from you
