Virtual and live staff training

We have been delivering staff training virtually for over 10 years and in live classrooms for over 20. Online workshops tend to be shorter in length from 30 to 3 and a half hours. This can be delivered in a one off session, or a series. We encourage lots of interaction with participants involved in discussion and practice throughout.

We use Zoom , but we can use your preferrred platform as we have delivered using most of the top systems like Webex, Adobe Connect etc.

The results are excellent and if you haven’t used online training before we can guide you through the process. And the results are excellent, which may be surprising. Take a look at our participant reviews. We find the learning outcomes are very similar to live classroom training. The thing that many participants miss is the level of social interaction and time for chit chat over a coffee during break time.

Online training really works to support your people and help develop their knowledge, or skills. Please contact us for a converstaion on this approach might work for you.

This site gives you lots of ideas of the kinds of areas we train in. If you don’t see exvcatly what you’re looking for we develop new training workshops all the time. Just reach out to us and we’ll discuss how we could help.

Our training was done by Martin Chapman and I thought he was excellent. The course was very well paced, clear and useful. I have been able to take a lot of points away from the training and hope to implement them in my presentations in the future.

In a time were our working lives have never been more “online” this training course is a great way to smooth out any bad habits we have picked up along the way, refresh our views on what a presentation should be about and reset out minds into thinking how will the end user feel during and after our time with them. Great way to hone our presentation skills and go back to the basics with a new set of eyes.

The training contained well-structured material, and more importantly it was a very interactive session which allowed everyone to practice the ‘tips & tricks’ immediately. I really liked that the group was small – everyone was focused on the topic. Martin’s a great trainer and his sessions are always a good investment in one’s professional development.

Solving your challenges with staff training

ITD time management training

We start with a discussion about your needs, because our training is designed to suit you and we do this at no extra cost. So we ask questions like; What lies behind your need for training? How might training help this? Describe the outcomes you’re looking for? What are the participants’ views? Let’s explore the results we might expect? How will the change or development required be delivered? What kind of follow up should we consider?

Based on this discussion we develop soft skills training to suit your needs and those of the participants. We’ve been doing this for over 20 years and with such a lot of experience we can easily select the ideas that will have most impact for you. If there is more than one group to train we recommend having a pilot, because even with extensive preparation our experience is that it is always better to test the training first.

Delivering staff training in a workshop style

ITD Presentation Skills Training

One of the things that makes us different is how we deliver our staff training. Some training companies turn up and deliver the same content to everyone, but we work much harder because we tailor the content to suit the needs and challenges of the participants in the room. In this way it is more of a bespoke training solution. When participants share their challenges and we discuss them to find possible solutions, that’s where we excel.

Many of our staff training offerings are delivered in a workshop style so that the participants are looking at their work during the training. With our Presentation Skills Training this is easy to see when participants use their own presentations to practice in the training room. But it also applies to our Nudge training which helps people apply the Nudge ideas to help  influence others.

30+ countries & thousands of participants.

We’ve delivered staff training in over 30 countries worldwide, which means we have probably worked with people similar to those in your organisation in terms of their culture and work roles.

Along the way we’ve met thousands of participants and we’ve worked with many different roles. Clients have included many different types  of organisations from charities to biotech and law firms to engineers.  Such broad and extensive experience means that we can hit the ground running in terms of developing a training solution that will best suit your organisation.

ITD has 20+ years of experience

Soft skills training for over 20 years
One of our first staff training workshops was held in Budapest

We’ve been designing and delivering staff training for over 20 years, which means you can benefit from our experience to design your next training programme. And we’re still learning because we believe you never stop having the chance to learn, refresh and improve. We use an open-loop learning culture which means we’re always aware of opportunities to improve. For example, managing clients’ expectations on the impact of training is crucial and we use our knowledge of behavioural change theories to explore what the probable outcomes of any training intervention will be.

We start with a conversation with you about your needs, those of your organisation and of the participants. Wherever possible we drill this down to behaviours, that is what behavioural change do you want to see. Then we can design the solution which best suits your needs and is tailored to fulfil your objectives, by helping your people make the changes you want them to.
