Professional Skills Portfolio

LAM Banner Photo 1full-set-bannerWe understand that there is a range of key professional skills people need to develop and use to operate effectively within business. A good understanding of the basic principles of project management is invaluable. There’s bound to be a bottom line so knowing how the finances affect your business is vital for success.  At some point you may be recruiting staff – done well this brings great people into the company – done badly and you’ll end up with the wrong person in post – or worse – in court!  Hardly any of us can avoid meetings – so let’s make the most of them by knowing how to lead, chair and contribute to them correctly.   Whether it be a two minute pitch at a networking meeting or a full blown conference presentation you’re going to have to demonstrate your ideas and your business – don’t let your ideas be let down by poor presentation skills.

We offer a range of topics which can be delivered as full day training, short workshops or included as part of larger events such as team away days and conferences.  Most of these topics can also attract ILM accreditation which can contribute towards a leadership and management qualification.
