We often see organisations book our meeting rooms in Dundee to offer training sessions. Typically, organisations identify a training requirement that organisations across Dundee and Angus share. It is a way of offering a snapshot of their expertise and deliver valuable information in a short timeframe.
Organisations have to cover the cost of their time, the venue, catering and of course, the valuable expertise they have spent years developing. Sometimes organisations have funding to deliver training free of charge to the recipient. In many cases, the organisation charges delegates to come along.
Most training sessions come about with an identified need in a particular sector or due to changes in external factors.
The training organisation books the room then puts the event up on Eventbrite or their own website and they get on with trying to promote the event. There are some factors we have seen that can lead to events being very well subscribed, and others struggling. Here are some things to consider.
