Nearly 30 years ago started my training company at my kitchen table. I had attended several management development programmes as part of my job and had that light bulb moment - which went something like - I could do this - I would love to do this.
It wasn't too ridiculous a thought as before I had been working in various roles in the charity sector including a Training & Development Officer and was currently the CEO of a Racial Equality Council I had been a teacher.
So why not combine my actual hands on experience with my teaching ability? The issues I needed to overcome were, how do you get booked as a trainer and what actually should go into training programmes. You see how little I knew at that point!
However a lot of phone calls, a lot of reading and research, hours and hours of developing programmes and materials, a bit of doing stuff for free and a year long course getting my Certificate in Training And Development, oh and I nearly forgot to mention, giving in my notice to my full time job, I felt confident enough to work as a Freelance Trainer.
Here we are nearly 30 years later, 30 years of running a business and being a trainer, having 8 other trainers working for me and some office help too, ready to share all we have learnt, to help other trainers grow their business. Take a look around and see where we can HELP YOU.
