Follow up – time well spent

During a training course you obtain a lot of knowledge but it isn’t until you are back at work that questions arise. These questions are addressed during the allocated follow-up sessions which mean that:

  • The course and content remains relevant
  • Participants are kept up to date
  • You as a company get value for money

Customised training

Designed for your specific needs

What do you need?

  • What subjects are relevant to you?
  • Which cultures and countries are relevant to you?
  • What challenges do your employees face?
  • Do you need a different course structure?

Specific needs

This option allows for customisation securing that the subjects and cultures relevant to you, your company and your employees are addressed. Everything is planned on beforehand to secure that your specific needs are met.

A different structure:

A 2 day course structure might not be suitable for you; instead you might want the course extended over several days or even weeks. Maybe it suits you to have a module every Monday morning or Wednesday at lunch time?

An extended structure allows time for reflection and participants are given more time to raise questions.

The disadvantage of an extended structure is the loss of intensity but only you know what is right for your organisation.
