Your Next Steps
7 STEPS TO DELIVER TRAINING YOUR
STAFF WILL LOVE (AND STILL GET RESULTS)
WeTrain’s style of delivery is interactive, engaging and fun. We encourage participants to make the training dynamic and enjoyable for all attendees.
It is generally presented as an engaging, interactive and fun one-day program, however, we can tailor the content to present a shorter session for conferences and events.
To ensure your training is relevant to your organisation and circumstances, we undertake an initial consultation, where we assess the skill level of your attendees, address your desired outcomes and find out valuable information about your company and its current set-up.
What Are Ideal Course Numbers?
Our courses are typically ‘hands-on’, so we suggest keeping numbers to a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 people. This allows our trainer to interact with your entire team yet still have enough time to allow for one-to-one interactions.
