We Have Recently Run This Course For:



A lot of money and time was being wasted in paying external facilitators to chair and facilitate workshops, meetings and planning days.

Lloyds TSB wanted a group of managers to be able to run these events in-house and hence not have to outsource this type of activity to third parties.

We were was asked to design and deliver some facilitation skills training for managers within the company.

The Solution

A 2 day workshop was rolled out that covered the skills and behaviours required to facilitate all types of meetings.

Particular attention was given to getting action points out of the group and how to control different types of people from the one’s who do not stop talking through to more disruptive and difficult team members.

They were delighted with the results – now their meetings are half as long with twice the output at no cost!

“Thanks to the trainers wonderful tips, techniques and his humour and approach I was able to understand what I needed to do back in the workplace to run effective meetings. The practical exercises were fun and I really got some meaningful learning out of each one – he had the uncanny knack of being able to make learning an enjoyable process for the whole 2 days. Thanks!”
