Business Training Workshops

Improve Your Business Marketing & Sales Skills

#WorcestershireHour training workshops provide in depth and practical advice that is instantly transferable to your own business. All courses are a FULL DAY, ‘hands on’ and highly interactive. We have a 100% ‘would recommend score’ from previous attendees.

Our key curriculum areas are Twitter for Business, LinkedIn & Blog Writing for Business, Facebook for Business and Modern Selling for Business. Courses have a maximum of eight delegates and our comfortable training centre is in Worcester.

About the Courses

The teaching style is very relaxed and highly practical (learning by doing), for example:

Learn some theory —> Look at an example —> Watch a live demonstration —> Have a go yourself —> Get support —> Have another go —> Got it —> Move on!

Class sizes are limited to ensure everyone gets as much individual tutor time as they need.

Apart from Modern Selling all courses require the learner to bring their own laptop computer or tablet (not ideal). For the Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn courses you will obviously need full password access to an appropriate account to work on*. Excellent FREE wifi is available.

*If you need help to set up an account prior to attending then please contact us.

All courses are held at 6 Sansome Walk Worcester and run from 9am to 4.30pm with 45minute lunch break. Complimentary coffee, tea, mineral water and biscuits provided. There are places to buy lunch close by and a refrigerator is available if you wish to bring your own lunch with you.

Each course participant will receive:

  • Certificate of Attendance
  • Soft copy of the course slides
  • Post course email and telephone support

Courses are a great way to meet new business contacts so be sure to bring business cards. The course price is £130 per person and can be booked online using the buttons above.  Select the date you require from the drop-down menu and follow the instructions.

Alternatively, if you would rather pay by bank transfer simply email Aaron at aaron@worcestershirehour.co.uk with the course name and date you wish to attend and he will send a booking form for you to complete.

Although our social media courses refer to ‘BUSINESS” they are also suitable for not for profit and charitable organisations. We offer a special rate (£75) to such organisations and NEW (start-up) businesses. This rate cannot be booked online so please email aaron@worcestershirehour.co.uk and he will send an invoice.

If you have any questions about these courses and their suitability for your needs, please call course tutor Stuart Allen on 01905 384314.

 

Your Tutors

Your tutor (apart from the Facebook for Business course) will be Stuart Allen, Managing Director of Worcester based The Sales Performance Company Ltd. Stuart works with businesses to help their sales teams to sell more and at higher profit margins. He has been using Twitter (85K followers) & LinkedIn (3K connections) to effectively market his own business for many years.

Stuart is also a Fellow of The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) & The Institute of Sales & Marketing Management (ISMM). He sits on the Business Board of Worcestershire LEP & is a Non Executive Director of Fortis Living.

Stuart founded #WorcestershireHour™ on Twitter in 2013 to help promote businesses across the County with a theme of “Keep It Local”. That event has been phenomenally successful and is now probably the most sophisticated regional Twitter ‘hour’ in the UK.

In 2014 Stuart started a new business (with social enterprise aims) called Worcestershire Enterprise Ltd to handle the commercial activities of #WorcestershireHour. The business raises money through training, sponsorship and events and employs one full time social media executive.

Those of you that have had a chance to hear Stuart talk will know how knowledgeable he is terms of sales, Twitter & business in general. He is also an engaging tutor and his courses are never dull.

Richard Brown will teach the Facebook for Business courses on behalf of #WorcestershireHour. Richard has over 10 years marketing experience in the charity sector, including working for Cancer Research UK and Acorns Children’s Hospice, and in 2008 he founded The Joanna Brown Trust in memory of his sister. As a externally accredited digital marketer, including being a Google accredited digital marketer, Richard is now passionate about passing on the skills and knowledge he has to help charities and small businesses have an impact with their digital marketing.
