What Makes Us Different?

We use memorable learning activities to develop problem solving, leadership and communication skills, explore team interactions and resolve conflicts, understand and improve motivation of team members, and get teams in the same department or different departments working together more effectively


SMT TRAINING offers a range of training services delivered by qualified and experienced facilitators. Experiential teaching methods based on tried and tested techniques are used to develop your skills and explore current business issues.

  • INSTANT IMPACT training sessions are intensive and interactive one-hour training modules designed to fit in with the time pressures of organisations today and are ideal for incorporating into team meetings or supplementing an existing training programme.
  • 'OPEN COURSES' are one-day or half-day, participative training sessions designed to introduce management concepts, develop the ability of participants to apply these concepts in real life scenarios and build the skills required to make your organisation more effective. Learning alongside managers from a range of organisations can bring refreshing insights and ideas.
  • 'IN-HOUSE COURSES' are run for a number of staff within the same organisation. Specific areas can be explored 'in-depth' in the context of the issues faced by the organisation, and common understanding, solutions and objectives established, increasing the impact within the organisation.The courses are designed for both commercial, third-sector, and statutory organisations and are designed to dovetail into and support progress through the 'National Occupational Standards for Management and Leadership' across six key areas.
  • BESPOKE TRAINING is designed in collaboration with the organisation to meet specific needs. 
  • TEAMBUILDING programmes can be indoors or outdoors and arranged to take place at your premises, at a local venue, or in inspiring countryside or wilderness environments.
