How to Set Up Your Training Room for Great Results

If you carry out training session either within your company or to your clients, you’ll need a training centre in Manchester that delivers the best facilities and service. At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we have a training room that offers businesses a range of services to ensure that your training events stand the best chance of success.

We have years of experience supporting businesses with their training needs so read on to find out how you can set up your training room to guarantee success.

A Room with a View

If possible, opt for a room with natural lights. Hotels often offer training rooms with no windows which can feel oppressive particularly if you are planning a full day training event. Windows will give the room a feeling of space and allow fresh air into the room to avoid that midday slump!

It can help to arrange the room so that the windows are towards the back of your delegates. This then throws natural light onto the speaker at the front and your delegates won’t be distracted by going-on outside the room.

Plan Your Day

When planning the training schedule think about when you will have breaks for tea and coffee. People are more alert in the morning so you can build longer sessions in there. The afternoon can become a struggle as people start to feel sleepy after lunch so more frequent breaks can keep people focused.

There is constant easy access to hot beverages throughout the day in each training room which is less disruptive than people leaving and returning to go to the café.

Create Some Space

Give yourself some space to move at the front of the room. People will find the presentation more engaging if you are able to move around freely rather than being sat stationary in a corner. Don’t opt for a table at the head of the room as many traditional room layouts provide. By removing this barrier your training session will feel more comfortable and informal. The delegates are more likely to work together and you can join in with them too.

Keep Your Eye on the Time

If you can move the clock behind your audience’s heads so you can keep an eye on the time. This will help you to keep on track without anyone knowing!

If you are looking for a professional, stylish training centre in Manchester to hold your events then contact Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) today on 0161 776 4000 or email us at info@cbpl.co.uk to speak to one of our experienced team.

Quality Training Rooms for Maximum Success

When it comes to delivering a fantastic training session you can ensure success by hiring a professional looking training room with outstanding facilities. At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we can help whether you are looking for the perfect venue for a product training day or if you want to bring staff together for a team briefing. No matter what your requirements we can offer advice and excellent training rooms to suit.

When choosing your training room there are several considerations to be made. How many people will be attending the training session? What types of equipment and technology will you need? Do you have any other specific requirements? No matter what type of training session you are planning the following areas need to be considered before you make a decision:

Getting the Location Right

Your number one consideration should be where to hold the training session. You need people to be able to access the venue easily whether by road or public transport. At Carrington Business Park we are ideally situated close to one of the North West’s leading cities for business and enterprise. Close to rail and motorway networks as well as Manchester International Airport you can be sure your attendees will be able to travel easily to your training venue. If you need to accommodate people with an overnight stay, Manchester and the surrounding areas boast high quality hotels to ensure the whole experience is a positive one. Parking is also a major consideration and again there is plenty on hand.

Know your Audience

Good planning will make all the difference so start by fully understanding your delegate’s requirements. You need a room with adequate space so that delegates are comfortable without the room being too big.
Consider the layout also. We can advise on the best layout to meet your training goals. Do you want to stimulate group discussion? Would you like delegates to break out into smaller groups? All your requirements are easily accommodated.

Technology Counts

When you need things to run smoothly having technical back up can make all the difference. Also ensure that your chosen venue has the technology that you need whether you want access to Wi-Fi, video conferencing facilities, audio or projector equipment.

If things go wrong, it will reduce your stress levels to know that you have an onsite team to help you get things up and running. Someone who can quickly run off some photocopies or connect a device to Wi-Fi can ensure you are ready to go before your delegates arrive!

At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) you’ll be impressed by our range of training rooms and the facilities offered. Visit us to meet our highly experienced team and discuss your training needs today or call us on 0161 776 4000 or email us at info@cbpl.co.uk.

Looking for the best training facility in Manchester

If you’ve ever been to a great training event, it’s likely that your positive experience was not driven purely by the subject matter. Often the training facility is of equal importance. If you are looking for a quality training facility in Manchester, then here at Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we can help. Whether you are looking to hold a large training seminar or train a small group of staff, our experienced team can support you throughout.

If the secret to success is ensuring that the training facilities are up to scratch, what types of considerations should you make when choosing the perfect training venue? Here are some tips and guidelines for choosing a winning training facility.

Get the location right

A great training room with all the mod-cons won’t make your event a success if people can’t get there. The location of your venue is one of the most important factors. Choosing somewhere that is easily accessible by rail, motorway and air will ensure you attract the most attendees.

Manchester is an ideal location with great transport networks and fantastic hotels. This dynamic city is also one of the leading business centres of the North West and the UK. This will prove attractive to many business people choosing training events. Not only can they learn something new but they can connect with business contacts in the city.

Know who your audience is

Next consider how many people will attend your event. When looking at training facilities consider how much room will be required. Ensure you have enough space and that delegates won’t feel crammed in.

Next, think about the layout of the room. You want to ensure that every delegate can hear the speaker and can view visual aids easily. If you want your delegates to break out into groups consider how this will work and what kind of support materials you will need.

Ensuring there are no technology issues

There is nothing worse than finding that the projector doesn’t work or there is no Wi-Fi at your venue. Make a checklist of all the technological support you need to carry out your training day. You may need video conferencing facilities, a projector for your presentation or audio equipment.

A quality venue will have a team to offer technical support when you are setting up and throughout the day. Having someone to run off last minute print-offs or help you with a troublesome laptop can reduce stress-levels significantly!

Choosing the perfect training facility

In order to make the best choice, visit your shortlist of venues. You can see the facilities first-hand and meet the staff who will be supporting you. At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we can offer a well-equipped training facility in Manchester. Speak to one of our experienced team to discuss your training venue needs today on 0161 776 4000 or at info@cbpl.co.uk.

Could training save you money?

At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk/conference-suite-manchester) we offer a wide range of training rooms and conference facilities to businesses. Training can often be viewed as a nice-to-have luxury but more and more businesses are recognising training as a strategic investment that increases productivity, motivates staff and reduces employee turnover. Choosing to hold training days off-site ensures that staff concentrate fully on the aims of the day as well as making them feel valued. Read on to find out why you should consider training rooms at Carrington Business Park:

Reducing costs and time

Although there is an initial financial outlay for training, in the long term it can help to increase a company’s profitability. When employees are poorly trained it often follows that performance is low. Staff are unsure of how to fulfil their roles or do not understand why they should work in a particular way. Training allows employers to explain the requirements of a job which reduces the amount of time needed to correct errors and bad performance as well as limiting maintenance costs and customer complaints. Training also ensures staff require less management and have a higher work output. It allows an employee to grow and develop and can mould the managers of the future.

Increased Staff Satisfaction

Many staff will see training as proof that their employers value them and due to a growing understanding of the company employee satisfaction and loyalty grows. Employees that receive excellent training are less inclined to look for other employment reducing recruitment costs in the long run. However the training must be tailored to their needs and expectations to be truly effective in securing commitment. Employers need to ensure the information provided in training is valuable and that it is delivered in a way that supports learning. Choosing well-equipped training facilities can support this.

Reducing staff churn

A company can reap significant financial rewards from maintaining highly trained staff as the loss of employees can be costly. There are administration costs associated with an employee leaving such as exit interviews but the replacement costs can be far higher. A business has to find new applicants, take time out to interview and induct new employees. With a strong training programme the turnover of staff can be reduced dramatically.

At Carrington Business Park we have various training rooms available to accommodate groups of all sizes whether you are holding a team briefing or a department training day. All our training rooms are equipped with conference facilities so that you have all the support materials required to make the day a success. In addition to that we can help you with catering options. To find out more contact one of the team at Carrington Business Park on 0161 776 4000.

Five reasons to use external training rooms in Manchester

At Carrington Business Park (www.carringtonbusinesspark.co.uk) we offer access to fully equipped training rooms. Our conference room can be converted to accommodate large training sessions and we can set out the room to meet with your specific requirements.

There are many benefits to using external training rooms rather than carrying out your training in-house. Here are our top five benefits:

Using an external training room increases productivity

If you’ve ever tried to arrange a training day in-house you will understand what a monumental task it is to get everyone together on the day. With in-house training it can be all too easy for delegates to be called away to attend to an operational issue or to feel distracted by the mounting work in their in tray.

However ,choosing to hold your training event at an another venue allows your staff to completely switch off from the day-to-day at work and fully focus on the training objectives free from any impromptu interruptions. In addition to this, external training rooms are equipped to support your training requirements with all the appropriate training aids and facilities to make the day a success.

You are guaranteed the full attention of the attendees

Staff will find it easier to fully engage with the training day when off-site. Being away from the office environment allows delegates to enter a different space and to connect fully with the learning process. Away from the normal environment your team will be more open to creative thought, team work and interaction.

You can develop staff loyalty through off-site training

When your staff feel valued they are more likely to develop an emotional commitment to the company. Providing off-site training is often viewed as a perk by many staff. They view it as evidence that their employer values their existing skills and wants to develop them further.

You can enhance this even further by combining the training day with meal out or adding fun team activities. This benefits you as an employer as staff learn to work together in new, creative ways leading to greater efficiency and productivity back at the office.

When staff relax, brain activity increases

Taking staff out into a relaxing environment with high quality facilities can stimulate better thinking. If staff are tense and worried about getting back to their desks, they will fail to fully engage with the learning process. Many businesses find that idea generation is at its best when the team are taken off-site.

At Carrington Business Park we have a range of added value services and the latest in training and conference equipment to ensure your training event is a success. So for the perfect location and training environment contact us on 0161 776 4000 or email info@cbpl.co.uk.
