Email Us

Training Counts works with professionals - through courses, coaching and conferences - to develop the business, impact and management skills that will help their careers and their organisations' bottom line.

We have experience in many sectors, both in the UK and internationally, and have particular expertise working with the staff and partners of accountancy firms.

Courses

All our courses are customised to meet your particular training needs, but typical subject areas include the following (click on titles for a more detail outline):

'Working that room' - an introduction to networking skills
'Stepping up' - management development programme for professionals
'Talking numbers' - finance and strategy for non-finance managers
'Pitch perfect' - presentation skills for business
'Write gooder' - effective business writing
'So what exactly do accountants do?' - business awareness for support staff in accountancy firms
'It’s just a matter of time' - time management for busy people
'A risky business' - identifying and managing business risk
'The subtle art of letting someone else have your way' - an introduction to negotiation skills

We keep workshops short, focussed and practical - most are just half a day.

When evaluating our training we go beyond the usual "did you enjoy it?" and ask the specific question "overall do you think this course will improve your job performance?" Across the last twelve months, we've had a 96% ' Yes' response.  And with over 85% of business being repeat custom, we like to think we're doing something right!

Please get in touch for more details or to chat through ideas and options. And if we can't help you, we probably know someone who can and would be pleased to refer you on.

Coaching and facilitation

One to one coaching can usefully supplement or substitute classroom training. The focus can either be on skills or career development. Recent coaching assignments have included working with the following:
1) a senior lawyer to become more effective in their internal working relationships
2) staff getting to grips with 360 feedback as part of their organisation's leadership development academy
3) adirector in a mid-tier accountancy firm to develop a sales pitchfor a new client offering

We also facilitate 'away days' for departments and firms. Recent examples have included:
1) an afternoon for a senior legal team to develop their teamwork and communication
2)a series of mornings for three new partners to better understand what was expected of them
3)an away day for a regional accountancy firm to help them develop a SWOT for their business

Get in touch to discuss how coaching or an away day might benefit your staff.
