Success - Experience - Quality
If you're looking for success, follow the business giants. Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffett followed similar paths to success. The path isn't new, and it isn't a secret. But you have to find the path before it leads you to success. Welcome to the path.
When you're new to any discipline, you don't know what you don't know. We call it the curse of knowledge. At the end of this train the trainer course, you'll have focused clarity and insights into this exciting vocation. This course is the game-changer you're looking for. These courses run monthly and are well-subscribed.
You're facilitator, Vince Stevenson, is a successful trainer of 25 years standing. His background is in IT, where he worked for big banks in the City and prestigious energy companies in the competitive fields of Project Management, Programme Management, and Configuration Management before he turned to teach programming for Sun Microsystems and Oracle. Vince ran his freelance IT Training business for over 25 years, so he is no stranger to end-to-end processes. On the recommendation of recent students, his training methodology has been licensed to a large pharmaceutical and a Middle-East energy company. He also works as a leadership, management and training consultant in the retail trade.
The venue at King's Cross is London's most accessible course centre. The 32-page colour workbook makes this an outstanding contribution to your success. Vince will discuss the whole process from beginning to end so you can roll out engaging high-level training. Whether you're an experienced trainer or a recruit to this critical role, working collaboratively with Vince and your classmates will be a high point of your personal development.

Sharpen the saw - great advice from Stephen Covey.
I see it as polishing your training diamond.
Save time and energy by becoming more efficient and effective as a professional trainer.
Most trainers know the how and what of training, but few know the why.
The training image below clarifies what to expect on our train the trainer courses in London.
Being a trainer is a tough job. You spend endless time researching and preparing; nobody sees or values it.
Mostly, your classes go well, but occasionally it goes wrong.
You can't quite put your finger on why. In time, you'll work it out yourself.
But what if a trainer with 25 years of experience could save you five years and accelerate your personal development?
Going from good to great is primarily a mindset shift. It's the subtle focus of this course.
Meet your master trainer and founder, Vince Stevenson. Vince is an avid learner and, in recent years, has accomplished many certificates in Learning and Communication Science with the University of California, San Diego, and Instructional Design with the Institute of Adult Learning, Singapore. Vince is working on a Higher Education Certificate from Harvard as part of his lifelong learning motivation.
