Writer meets… Training Consultant

As part of my marketing strategy to promote my proofreading, copywriting & blogging business, I spend some of my time networking. As a result, I have met some wonderful people working in all sorts of businesses. With my innate interest in “all things business” I invited Lisa Butler, Training Consultant from Adhere Training, to tell me her business story. Here it is…

In 2010, Lisa Butler founded Adhere Training – and later the Adhere Training Club – based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. Adhere Training was established to support local businesses in meeting their goals through highly effective training workshops.

Lisa’s experience in the training and development sector is based on several years with Business Link and Train to Gain in the South East. During this time, she worked with businesses to diagnose their training and development needs. This set the path for Lisa’s vision to deliver a truly unique training facility in the form of the Adhere Training Club.

What is the Training Club?

The Adhere Training Club is specifically geared towards small local businesses in the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas. Employers understand that employee performance and retention is linked to training; they know that, through regular training, their employees will reach their full potential.

What’s the secret?

Membership to Lisa’s Training Club is based on an affordable pricing structure. Employees can access a broad range of interactive, innovative and enjoyable training workshops for as little at £10 per month per employee. Adhere publishes a full 12 month training schedule; employers can therefore budget for their employees’ development needs through a single training provider, and design a development plan to suit their business objectives.

The training package offered by the Adhere Training Club is unlike any other on the market. Most small businesses know they should be investing in training. However, they are concerned about the cost and time factors.

Lisa says she often hears “I really must come on one of your social media training workshops. I know nothing about it and I know it will help my business”, or “I really need your finance course. I know nothing about the finances of my business and I want to understand what my accountant is talking about”.

The Training Club solution removes the cost barrier and opens the door to a better way of accessing and planning for training in a way that says: “What’s stopping you?”

The Adhere Training Club is “going places”

Training Club is going from strength to strength. They are already meeting the needs of small businesses in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, with new members joining every month. They now have plans to open further training venues across Berkshire, Surrey and London.

Lisa is very excited about the direction of her business. She has plans to franchise the Adhere Training Club, and is actively looking for new associate trainers and potential franchisees who want to be a part of this distinctive training concept.

  1. What a clever idea. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a model like this in Canada either, though it’s not exactly in my bailiwick, so I could be wrong. I also like the use of colorful materials in the training sessions. It may seem like a silly thing, but having attended many facilitated meetings, I’ve noticed that when eye catching things are on the table (colorful markers and writing pads etc.) people are more likely to grab them and engage.
