Training Matters celebrate their 20th year by looking to the future

We launched our successful "Back to the Future" programme this year and it sums up what we are all about. We have taken our experience and learning gained over the last 20 years through periods of intense challenge and change, and looked to the future to embrace technology and grow our managers of the future. It also says a lot about the world of work that we are launching our Digital Marketing Diploma this month too. Work has changed dramatically over this time and that change will gather pace over the next 20 years - we will have to be prepared and we like to help people keep a step ahead.

Leadership Matters

Effective leadership really does matter. The events of this few months have shown us this, from the Uber Chief taking time out after a disastrous management review to Theresa May losing her parliamentary majority apparently because of her leadership style. And yet… … formal leadership and management development is seen often as a luxury. People get promoted because they are good at what they do. If I had a pound for every person who has told me that they have had little or no formal management training, I would be a very rich woman.

Management Matters

It’s that time of year when people start to think about doing “some” kind of training. It’s an autumn thing. But what? Well for those of you still thinking about it, Management and leadership qualifications are worth a look and here’s why.........

Warm, Connected Community…. by Claire Dickie

The values of the Sheraton brand are embodied in all that we do here at The Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa in Edinburgh and we truly are a place where our people feel valued and rewarded and as a result stay longer.

Do something! - by Mary Scott

I'm not really into poetry. It's one of the many things I wish I knew more about, it seems like something I'd enjoy but I've never spent enough time on it…yet. However, the first thing that came into my head when asked to write this was a poem often recited to me growing up (my dad actually quoted it at my sister's wedding!)

Growing Through Education

In IBM continuing to grow through education is key to your success so when the opportunity came up to work with Margo and Roberta from Training Matters I had to oblige! From the very first meeting with Margo I felt so comfortable and at ease – she is a very inspirational lady!

How personal and professional development should really work

At Training Matters, we have always maintained that a big part of an organisations success is down to the talented people who work within them. We want to feature one of our candidates this month who is a real inspiration to other people and a true example of how personal and professional development should really work.
