Lunch and Learn

Below is list of the Lunch and Learn sessions we deliver regularly for a wide range of clients and sectors. We can tailor these sessions to meet the needs of your setting, and create new content/subjects upon request. These sessions are available face to face or online. Note we have delivered these sessions to up 500 people at a time online.

Reduced numbers allows greater interactivity but this also is limited by the duration. Our standard Lunch and Learn are usually 45-60 mins including Q&A.

We recommend Lunch and Learn for communication with larger workforces, identifying support/interest for more detailed training or as an easily digestible bitesize development programme for staff.
