Live online

Live online is ‘on-air’ training where real trainers work with remote delegates. It’s highly interactive – participants work in groups and pairs, view slides and video, use whiteboards, and talk to fellow delegates and the trainer, just like in a real training room. We just use Zoom instead!

Face-to-face

Excellent for relationship-building and very practical sessions, working face-to-face with your staff builds teams and buy-in, especially for those who are tech-nervous. We love getting into the physical training room and whilst it relies on participants being able to travel to and meet in a convenient place, its a great place to be creative and experiential.
