Internal Staff Training and Development

This workshop, along with most of our other best practice workshops, can be delivered as an internal course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
