Developing Leaders for Talent Management Conversations - Taunton and Plymouth venue

As a train the trainer programme delegates will learn to deliver the above programme to leaders within their own organisations. Delegates will work through day one as a participant and should invite along a colleague as an ‘interested stakeholder’ to attend day one with them (ideally a leader or manager who would form part of your targeted audience in the future).

Requirements for this programme:

  • Delegates should be experienced facilitators or trainers and have capacity to deliver this programme as part of their role
  • Committed to attending both workshops and should bring along an ‘interested stakeholder’ to day one in order to gain a broader perspective and enrich the content (an intended delegate like a leader or line manager would be best placed for this).
