"Give me just two days in London and I'll give you the skills and knowledge to turn average, ho-hum training into focused, structured, transformational inspiration... and TWO industry benchmark professional qualifications as a trainer to add to your CV as proof..."
- says top corporate trainer and the four-time UK National Public Speaking Champion Michael Ronayne

And you won't only feel the difference...
Because after completing the two days, you'll be able to add not one but TWO kinds of respected professional trainer certifications to your CV - with the hard-copy certificates to show for it.
Yes: you'll walk away with two benchmark certificates from:
1. The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) - the UK's leading provider of leadership, coaching and management qualifications and training, part of the City & Guilds Group.
City & Guilds is the biggest name in vocational education, with two million learners embarking on a qualification every year.
2. NCFE - a national Awarding Organisation established over 150 years ago, and recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Last year alone, over 340,000 learners from over 2,000 colleges, schools and training organisations chose NCFE as the Awarding Organisation to help them move their careers forward.
And here's just a small sampling of what you'll discover when you join Michael at his next highly interactive workshop and master your own unique blend of the three core components of every training or coaching session:
Part 1: 'You' - The Trainer
Training can only ever be as good as the trainer who delivers it.
You'll discover how to choose the right learning style for any training situation and deliver a confident, compelling performance, every time.
- The 3 elements that must intersect to create Ideal Communication and achieve the trainer's Holy Grail: 'Planned Spontaneity'
- How to use Pitch, Pace, Power and Pause to make an impact
- How to use your body - stance, hands and voice, and gestures - both to relate to others, and assert yourself, and when to use each style of non-verbal communication
- How to use your eyes to create connection, confidence and build genuine trust
- Discover the qualities of an ideal trainer (hint: their relationship to the qualities of an ideal student may surprise you!)
- Why coaching and training are different - and when never to use a 'coaching' style
- 4 key learning concepts: 'child learning', 'adult learning', Single loop v double-loop learning
Part 2: 'Them' - The Students
Great trainers recognise the unique needs of every 'class' they work with, speak to their needs, and develop an easy rapport that facilitates learning and results in top approval ratings - and so will you.
- The 3 essential ingredients for a successful workshop or training session: Learning Environment, Learning Readiness, Participation
- What to say in the critical first 90 seconds of any training workshop so that attendees trust you and become fully engaged. We'll develop this essential content with you, live during the workshop, so you can take it away and use it immediately
- How to map out why students need your workshop to make any training brief compelling
- The 3 critical - but secret - questions ALL students have at the outset of any training - and how you must answer them
- The simple F.O.A. Formula that makes ice-breaking easy
- How to use story techniques to make your points powerful and highly memorable

- What every trainer should have in their workshop 'toolkit'
- The Rules of Feedback - including the 'Sprinkler Rule'
- How to create an effective workshop feedback form - and the mistakes to avoid that can dangerously distort your feedback
Plus: Training Techniques, Exercises, Models, Templates...
You'll also leave with a 27-page manual of essential training advice, templates, exercises, models, diagrams, further reading and additional resources, including:
- Lesson Plan template

And, when you book your place securely online from this website, you do so with the reassurance of knowing that a host of organisations have already seen profound and lasting results from the small investment in Michael Ronayne's Training the Trainer course:
'I would recommend this course to absolutely anybody. The skills I've gained from the session have enabled me to create stronger relationships in my working environment' - Heena Surani, Landmark Aviation
Why the investment in Training the Trainer is essentially free!
In business and in organizations of all types, we recognize that effective training improves performance and motivation.
And as someone with responsibility for training, you have an incredible opportunity to positively influence other members of staff.
Imagine the effect on communication, atmosphere and morale, productivity your staff had the understanding to do their jobs perhaps just 5% better.
In pure hard numbers, what would that kind of impact be worth?
Well, let's be conservative about it!
Even if you have just THREE members of staff delivering a very modest £30,000 of value to your organisation per year each...
...getting another 5% out of them alone would equate to at least £4,500 of value per year, every year, wouldn't it?
And if you're able to touch 10 staff like that?
93% of employers report 'tangible increase in their managers' capability after an ILM qualification like this!
and we know the market value for capable professionals who can truly improve team performance is high.
By the end of the two days, you'll be a doubly certified professional trainer recognised by both ILM and NCFE.
Does it seem over-the-top to imagine that this might be worth an added £1,000 in salary to you every year for the rest of your career?
What might that be worth for you?
£20,000? £30,000, perhaps?
Well, the investment in attending our next Training the Trainer workshop is nothing like that, at just £745+VAT, including all refreshments and lunch, and the mailing to you of your certificates from ILM and NCFE.
That's the equivalent of about £13 per week over the next year...
Worth it to boost performance in your organisation and give you lasting, transferable skills as a trainer into the bargain?
Here's what some of Michael's inspired students said about the course:
So: booking your place at the College of Public Speaking London's next Training the Trainer is an easy decision!
• You've seen how, after two days, you'll 'graduate' from the course with two kinds of respected professional certification.
• You've seen how the course is ALWAYS delivered by Michael Ronayne personally, a four-time UK national public speaking champion with over 15 years training experience.
...and only ever with small groups - so no matter what your level as a trainer, you're guaranteed the close attention of an expert trainer as you make rapid improvement...
• You've seen the glowing feedback from previous attendees...
...organizations like the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, GlaxoSmithKlein, Save the Children, the Home Office, the Royal College Of Paediatrics and Child Health, Serco, London Borough of Haringey, A2B Aero, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Landmark Aviation, Lockheed Martin, Olympus Europe and more!
And you've seen how the tiny investment of just £745+VAT... including all refreshments and lunch, and the mailing to you of your certificates from ILM and NCFE in a hard-backed envelope... pales into insignificance compared to the gains in team productivity and morale you can expect from becoming a better trainer.

Michael Ronayne - National Speaking Champion - 4 times in 7 years
Director of the College of Public Speaking, Michael Ronayne, returned to the competitive stage at the ASC's (Association of Speakers Clubs) National Speech Contests in Castle Donington on April 26th and walked away crowned National Topics Champion at the head of a highly accomplished field of UK speakers.
Having delivered a thorough and well-received seminar on the Use of Voice to the National Conference delegates in the afternoon, Michael went on to 'walk his talk' in the evening contest by showing the conference how it was done under pressure. In recent years Michael has twice won the title of National Speech Champion, but this time he excelled in a competition where the contestants have to speak on a given subject without receiving any prior preparation.
"An exceptionally useful day's training, delivered in a positive and personanable manner, very enjoyable and significant food for thought. Thank You."
"The anxiety is gone - now that I understand it. Not only can I make a presentation - I feel I have so much to give now. It's quite a transformation."
"Since attending the course, I feel like a completely different person; more confident, relaxed and easy going. I gave a speech at work last week and it went so so well."
