As much as some of us would like to, learning doesn’t up when we leave school. It’s a fast-paced world we live in, with growing technology and corporate changes that give companies the edge that they need to survive and thrive. Stagnation isn’t a good look on anyone, especially companies, which is why many companies have training days.
From IT and new system training to policy, management, customer service and even loss prevention – there’s an endless list of potential training. But, where do you host these training days?
Luckily for you, we’ve got a selection of some of the best training day venues in London, just waiting to be snatched up and used to instil knowledge and growth in your company. Check out our training venues to see what we can offer.
From putting together training materials to finding the best training rooms in London, or even a meeting room for a day for shorter, smaller events, we’re here to help you plan your training day to perfection (starting with showing you the best training rooms available in London).
Step 1: Outline your goals
It goes without saying that the first thing you should do is figure out why you’re having a training day in the first place. What do you want your staff to learn? You wouldn’t want them just aimlessly wandering around like lost puppies, so make sure your goals are clear. Write a list, everyone loves lists.
Step 2: Consider your audience
Once you know the ‘why’, it’s time to move on to the ‘who’. Who is the training session aimed at? Yes, we know… your staff. But delve deeper than that if you can. Are these management types or creative types, retail heroes or even medical staff? What makes them tick, and how will they best learn what you want them to?
Step 3: Put together your materials
Okay, so the ‘what’ and ‘who’ have been ticked off the list, so now you need to put together the ‘what’. Using the goals, purpose and audience, you’ll be able to put together a proper plan of action. Just ‘winging it’ probably isn’t going to cut it, so get together an ironclad plan of action with supporting documents, presentations and anything else you’ll need.
Step 4: Location, location, location
We always love this part… maybe because it’s our forte – we’re talking about the ‘where’ now. Where you host your training day can make all the difference. Not everyone enjoys drab boardrooms with Powerpoint presentations and one person at the front with a pointer. In fact, not many people enjoy that at all. With a good location for a training day, you can engage and inspire those attending so much more. Funky boardrooms, dinner halls and auditoriums are all up for grabs, and we’ve got the very best training rooms in London to suit all different budgets. Our listed London training rooms come in all shapes and sizes – finding the perfect one for you has never been easier.
Step 5: Feed the masses
No one learns well on an empty stomach, and if that isn’t a scientific fact then it definitely should be. Training days can go on for a while, so schedule in regular (and food-fuelled) breaks. From coffee and tea to lunches filled with brain-boosting foods, refreshments are important to keeping people focused and engaged.
Step 6: Train away!
Once all the pieces of the puzzle are in place, and you’ve sorted out who’s coming and who’s leading, you’re all good to go. Enjoy the experience, and get some great reviews in too!
In case you didn’t know, a lot of people find learning quite boring. Keeping it interactive, and maybe a little bit competitive too, can help to engage the brain more. The more someone pays attention, the more information they will retain. Facts. Incorporate some fun games into your training day to keep things active and avoid anyone dozing off.
Don’t drone on
No matter how much you want to get all that information into one neatly wrapped package, information overload will seriously hinder your success. Break it down into bitesize chunks with plenty of breaks for caffeine and cookies (essential). You can always split it into two days too if you need to.
Invite industry leaders
The best way to inspire people is to, well… inspire them. Get some industry leaders involved in your training day so people can really understand what’s going on and engage with the materials. Better yet, use your peers. So many training days are run by upper management, but people might be more inclined to related to and listen to someone who is more their peer.
Similar to the games idea, you can invite a somewhat competitive element into the mix and offer rewards or prizes to those who excel. Honestly, just a lunch, dinner or extensive buffet an be enough to incentivise some people. Another idea could be an away day following the training, or even something as simple as gift vouchers or extra holiday days for those who perform the best.
Tell a story
If you really want to hold someone’s attention, you need to relate the material to their everyday life. There isn’t really much more to say about this one – it really is that simple!
One idea, and probably one of the most common, is a conference-style theatre layout venue. With screens or a stage at the front and a hall of chairs arranged to view the screen. This is a tried and tested format, but let’s admit, it’s not very unique and possibly not as engaging as it could be.
By dinner hall, we don’t necessarily mean for you to have dinner, we just mean a table layout really. Circular tables so everyone can engage with each other easily. This is a great one if you want your staff to play games, do quizzes or just generally interact with each other.
We have many unique and unusual venues to give your training day something a little different. Why not break from norms and give the staff a more engaging, interesting setting in which to learn? Think out the box, your staff will thank you for it.
