Train The Trainer – “Corporate Energy”

You will leave invigorated, impatient to get back to work to try it out, and most of all learn to entertain an audience whilst they participate at a whole new level!”

Background

Culturally, business in the UK has become dominated with e-mail, meetings, content driven training sessions and PowerPoint presentations. The impact of these changes has served to ‘suck’ energy from our people, break down relationships and destroy productivity from these events. Time is our most valuable resource in work yet meetings are dull, our people have little energy, and training sessions often feel laborious.

The Process

Suitable for meeting facilitators, business leaders and trainers, Corporate Energy is an active and highly challenging programme. All participants are required to develop their own material in the sessions and are then individually coached whilst delivering and presenting subsequently.
