Building Your Training Consultancy
Gone are the days when training management was about making sure that designs met learning objectives or measuring the amount of time trainers spent in the classroom.  Now more than ever before training managers must see their department as a training consultancy and their team as a commercial asset to the business.  In this session you will discover the secrets of moving your team from being seen as a cost to an investment.
