Our training philosophy

At the heart of our training philosophy lies the passion to design bespoke training that delivers results. We work very closely with our clients to ensure we understand their business and the key challenges that they are facing. This then places us in a strong position to design, create and deliver training that meets these needs and deliver results.

Training should be a personalised, flexible and energising experience and that is exactly what we offer.

With over 40 years combined experience in the recruitment industry, working in both operations and learning and development, Patrick and David are not ‘chalk and talk’ trainers, their approaches could not be more different.

With activity based, high energy and interactive learning, we encourage learners to attack head on the challenges they face through an action centred approach. Coupled with our unique rural setting, trainees can experience a training experience, which delivers maximum engagement. Our follow up sessions also ensure theory is being put into practice within your business.

We have been working with Lead Talent for a while now, utilising their solutions to help with the strategy, brand and training elements of our organisation. We have a diverse business and as a result we needed to work with a partner that understands recruitment and how we specifically operate.

Lead Talent have recently been helping gap deliver our Leadership apprenticeship programme to our Leaders based across the UK and the feedback we have had has been superb. The delegates have expressed that David’s content, delivery and follow up has been excellent and they feel compelled to put their learning into practice back in their teams. They have also highlighted that the coaching support they receive from Patrick has been fantastic and has helped them gain traction on their actions and as a result have been able to positively impact how they operate.

I would highly recommend Lead Talent as a strategy and training partner as they have extensive experience of the recruitment sector, they are fresh, bright and engaging with their approach and work closely with us to achieve our business objectives.
