Train the Trainer of the 21st Century - Public Workshop


Train the Trainer

3 day public Train the Trainer Workshop facilitated by Paul Archer focussing on practical "use the very next day" training skills and techniques. No wallowing in too much theory - just design and delivery skills, strategies, techniques and tips that bring results for the modern learner with a healthy dose of interaction and involving learning activities.  Your training delivery will never be the same again.

When I first began recruiting trainers for my training team at Black Horse Agencies in 1991, I only took on people who were existing salespeople for the company. I’m a great believer that trainers have to live their skills and knowledge that they are training and become models of excellence. I also believe in recruiting for attitude and training for skills, which is a phrase of wisdom given to me year’s ago. Hence I wanted to train them.

A problem I found was that recruiting trainers gradually meant I didn’t have enough to warrant running a programme myself so I looked for a suitable public course.

What would I have done to be able to send them on the course that I created over 20 year’s in the future? All my experience, skills and training philosophies picked up from hundreds of sources, people, books, seminars, mistakes…rolled up into a three day programme.

The answer is our three day public programme available twice a year.
