SMART Train the Trainer for Hotels (2 day)

This is a new take on the original Train the Trainer and is specifically aimed at the Hotel Industry, providing your team with the skills and confidence to deliver effective training in Duty Management, Reception, Food & Beverage, Meetings & Events Sales, Reservations & Revenue Management.

The train the trainer workshop is designed for HODs and those responsible for training in your organisation. Your team member will gain the knowledge and skills to confidently plan and deliver effective training in their work environment.

Training is often used as a reactive solution to better performance rather than a proactive one. This workshop ensures that the training planned is relevant to learner’s job roles and is delivered consistently. All examples and scenarios are linked to the hospitality industry giving the delegates ideas of what, to who and how to deliver training in their current positions.

Day 1 of the workshop concentrates on giving your team member all the tools and knowledge to be able to design their own 10-minute training session which will be assessed on day two.

Day 2 consists of some learning, then the majority of the day involves the delegates delivering their 10-minute session to the rest of the group, receiving feedback and creating an action plan.

SMART Managing your 'space' more profitably

This is a very basic workshop aimed at giving you a taste of what Revenue Management would mean to your Meetings & Events business.

The key is being able to capture data in a user-friendly way; to get the most out of any external reports available to you (i.e. MEET Cambridge and MIA Touchstone) and to regularly review this information and agree a relevant strategy based on demand and ‘booking trends’.

This workshop will give your team an understanding of how you can simply implement a Revenue Management culture in to your Meetings & Events business by introducing some basic tools, easy to understand reports and some structured disciplines as part of your team’s every day focus.

It is fun and interactive and includes lots of exercises around a ‘virtual’ Meetings and Events office and concludes in a competitive Business Game. Your team will leave confident and focused on what they need to action back in your business.
