The Highly Effective Manager (2 Day Webinar)

Our signature two-day management programme ‘The Highly Effective Manager’ can be delivered online. Alternatively we can deliver as a series of six 90-minute webinars (3 webinars each day).

We deliver the webinars on our Zoom platform. The features (chat, breakout rooms, polling etc) ensure the webinars are highly interactive and engaging. (We can also deliver the webinars on your preferred platform).

We provide electronic copies of any handouts/profiles (in advance of the webinar). These are sent along with the link and instructions for joining the webinar and this can be forwarded to each attendee. After the webinar we provide a copy of the PPT slides (to forward to attendees), a list of the attendees who attended and screenshots of the attendee feedback.

The webinars work best with between 10-20 attendees in terms of maintaining interaction. Attendees can participate from anywhere in the world.

This two-day programme costs £1250 plus VAT per day, £2500 plus VAT for the two days. This works out at £83 per delegate per day with 15 delegates.

“I can honestly say this was one of the most inspiring and meaningful training sessions I’ve had in my close to 14 years of Sales and 5 years of leadership. It was delivered in such a calm and collected way and I loved the short and succinct sessions. The two days have made a big difference to my thinking and I can’t wait to start putting some of the ideas into practice.”
