Impact Factory runs a series of public courses covering all of our core training issues from Presentation Skills, Assertiveness and Negotiation through to Creativity and Training Trainers.
These are one, two or five day courses, mostly for 8–10 delegates (6 in the case of Presentation), which offer individuals the best of Impact Factory's extensive training expertise.
Because numbers are kept low, we can adapt the material on these courses to fit the needs of the individual participants and ensure they get an excellent range of tools and techniques to develop their skills.
Held at Impact Factory's London premises, we provide a comfortable, easy and enjoyable environment in which to tackle the heart of these issues. Every course is run with two facilitators and delegates have ample time and encouragement to practise and perfect the tools that suit their style.
