Management Training in the East Midlands

We’re a multi-award winning team of management trainers in the East Midlands

We provide local management training for East Midlands businesses

Ay up me duck!

We’ve been around as a company since 2011, with our founders having been based in Derby for nearly 30 years. We’ve seen the amazing changes that the city has undergone since then, and are proud to be part of its future.

So, we’re truly local. With a real office that you can actually visit in person. Not a ‘virtual office’. Not a distant call-centre in some far-away place. Not just a website, a collection of downloadable courses, or an anonymous voice on the phone. We’re actual people who’d really like to properly get to know you and your business, so we can fully understand exactly what you’re trying achieve and how we might best help you with that.

Our office is conveniently located at the scenic and historically interesting World Heritage site of Darley Abbey Mills, not far from Derby city centre. That’s it in the picture. Nice, huh?

Which means we’re readily available for a face-to-face chat. And since we have our own private meeting rooms, we can easily discuss the types of confidential or sensitive issues that might not be possible within a shared workspace or at your normal place of business.

So, you’re welcome to pop in if you’re passing. Or we’re equally happy to come over to your place. Or even meet online. Whatever works best for you.

We’re a leading East Midlands HR consultancy and management training provider

We’ve already grown from a single-person business operating from home, to a 5-star rated multi-award winning company with offices and a whole team of HR consultants, trainers, and employment law experts. From our origins in HR support and consultancy we’ve diversified into HR, management, and wellbeing training, and are currently developing additional sister brands so that we can help you with a whole package of people-related support.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and in particular, the reputation we’ve established within the local small business community. We offer you the stability of an established company, the credibility of one with a history of local clients, and the capability of one that’s grown beyond the one-person stage. You can be fully confident that we’re able to deliver what we promise, and can trust that we’ll reliably be there in the future when you need help.

But don’t take our word for it.

Just ask other East Midlands businesses what they think about our management training.

All the staff involved gave glowing accounts

During post-recession business expansion it was felt that senior managers would benefit from some training in leadership, time management, personal impact and self-awareness skills. Using Sarah’s HR experience and training abilities it was possible to combine this with a search for potential future directors. All the staff involved gave glowing accounts of the way Sarah has improved their management capabilities. Even the management training doubters were won around! Output from the staff exercises and insights from Sarah have been combined with staff performance appraisals to identify directorial talent. We will not hesitate to use Sarah’s services again when we need them.

Sarah helped our senior staff with HR and management training. All feedback from staff was positive and I’m sure it wasn’t just because of the chocolate rewards used in some of the exercises! Her training and insight has aided us in targeting potential future Directors of the company and empowered other staff in their management roles.

5 star course

The course was 5 star, Annie put us at ease from the first minute and delivered the course superbly. she gave us time to take on board the information and didn’t try to bombard us with information.
every session of the course was explained and Annie got all the delegates involved and active in the day.
I enjoyed the course and now have some knowledge to use when helping people with their issues. Nothing was too much trouble for Annie so brilliant.
Must also add that the shortbread that Annie supplied was not only delicious it was M&S too.
I would recommend this course to anyone thank you for all your work in training people up to help those with mental health issues
Thank You

Essential and well delivered training

This training is essential for managers and employees who need to have a clear understanding of Mental health and practical structured ways to support their team.
Mental Health First Aid does exactly that.
I really benefited from Annie’s open-ness and professional knowledge coupled with the group discussions and learning gained from other candidates in different industries was extremely valuable.
It has really helped me identify new ways of working and supporting the health of my team. This course, just like physical first aid gives clear guidance on immediate support that can be applied in a multitude of scenarios.
I would recommend this training for at least one person in every workplace.

Great Training Session!

Sarah and Annie work well as a team and they delivered an exceptional session regarding conflict resolution and mediation skills. They provided us with a lot of information, but also kept everyone engaged by doing group activities. What I enjoyed the most was the fact that it wasn’t just another boring reading of PowerPoint Presentation, but a wealth of knowledge and engagement from both trainers. No question too difficult and a day well spent!

Thank you for equipping me with a lot of knowledge and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Annie is a really bubbly character

The webinar was led by Annie from Loates. Annie is a really bubbly character and engaged with the participants in a relaxed and friendly manner.

I found the content of the webinar really helpful in making suggestions to tweak our performance review process. As a business we are in the early implementation stages of carrying out performance reviews so it was a very timely session. Employee engagement is one of the key issues to the business succeeding. The webinar gave us an opportunity to do some little breakout exercises which gave us an opportunity to reflect on how we could help to develop our colleagues. With this being more of a workshop session we also have the opportunity to interact with others on the session. It was interesting to learn of the challenges others had and how they were trying to resolve them.
Annie is clearly a bookworm and made a number of suggestions regards to reading material to consider. My Audible account is now down to zero credit and Amazon have delivered some bedtime reading.

Thanks Annie & Loates for running this session; I found it really helpful.

Great training

Considering the topic of mental health first aid Annie made the training informative, yet it was also an enjoyable experience. Annie made it inter-active and wasn’t just following a power-point presentation. I have come away with a huge amount of knowledge to take back to my workplace.

Thanks Sarah!

Enscite asked Sarah to run a workshop on important HR policies required for Small Businesses so that our clients are better equipped to understand some of the HR requirements in relation to this. The session was really well run and both engaging and informative so that our clients went away with better knowledge and having enjoyed their learning experience.
Great job Sarah!

We've previously been all the way up to Glasgow. In fact, we've even taken our management training as far afield as Egypt.

We're equally happy to deliver our management training at our site in Derby, your site, or an off-site training venue. Or indeed, at any other location that you'd prefer.

And as a result of Covid, we now also offer the option of online delivery for all our management training, which provides a flexible and time-efficient alternative solution for busy businesses, wherever they may be.

We can help you with management training in the East Midlands!

Already know what you want? Great, let's get to it!

Our friendly and down-to-earth management training experts will point you in the right direction. We'd love to have an informal chat to find out more about your business and so help you identify the areas most in need of attention.

We're ready and waiting, so just get in touch!
