How Can In-House Training Benefit Your Business?
We regularly run our Presentation Skills as an in-house workshop for clients who have sales or management teams that are required to make presentations or speak in public as part of their roles.
In-house (also called “in-company”) training is a highly-effective and efficient way of delivering a consistent skill-set to your team. If you have several potential candidates for training within your team or organisation, in-house could be the best way to deliver that training for maximum impact.
5 Benefits of In-House Training
When we deliver an in-house workshop, you choose a training date that works in-line with your business calendar.
Our per-day in-house rate can work out at a significantly lower cost per person than if each participant attended a public course.
We will tailor the workshop content to centre around the priorities, goals, and challenges of your team.
As you choose the date and we come to your premises to deliver training (or deliver online), there is minimum disruption and downtime for your team's productivity.
Holding a Presentation Skills workshop in your business ensures that each member of the team receives the same foundation skills and preparation techniques.
