What is the LMC approach to training?

At LMC we have a practical approach and a highly successful formula for developing high powered HR solutions and training events. Our practical, stimulating and challenging approach is interactive and combined with a total customer focus, ensures the success of each individual programme and information retention by delegates. One of the major benefits of our approach is to maximise exposure to other course delegates from different backgrounds, cultures and industries. This broadens the learning experience and reflects true modern working environments.

Customised Training

What is the LMC approach to customised training?

Customised training programmes are designed to consolidate and integrate the key issues of the client's learning objectives; these are then linked to organisational strategy and culture, in order to ensure they are fully effective. Programmes can be followed up to ensure that the needed change takes place.

Working exclusively with one company provides the opportunity to modify content and emphasis to suit the needs of each organisation. The training is presented and discussed against the experiences within the company and can therefore be completely consistent and relevant to the client's requirements.

What do we need to provide to LMC if requesting customised training?

We will ask you to provide the following:

  • Your specific objectives for the required training
  • The background of staff you wish to be trained
  • The functions and job titles of the staff to be trained
  • When exactly you wish to have the training done
  • How many people you wish to train
  • Where you would like the training to take place
