Development of Courses
We have a list of popular course outlines available for download on this page. Courses are usually tailored for content, duration and format to meet the precise needs of delegates, and we are also happy to develop entirely new, customised course outlines on request.
Delivery of Courses
It is our normal practice to deliver these courses on location in the client's home country, though we can also host courses in the UK if required. We are usually booked by banks or other institutions wishing to deliver on-site training exclusively for their staff, though we are happy to deliver open courses if we believe there will be adequate demand.
Format of Courses
We can deliver courses in a wide variety of formats, from intensive, interactive workshops for very small numbers, to seminars for much larger audiences. We are used to working with delegates for whom English is a second language, and also translation and interpretation into local languages. We can help develop customised e-Learning materials as well.
Pricing of Course
Pricing depends on factors like the duration of the training course, how many times it is repeated, the amount of customisation required, the travelling time, and travel and subsistence costs. However, our pricing is extremely competitive and most clients are very pleased with the value for money our training represents. Please don't hesitate to contact us for a custom quote.
Corporate Governance for Bankers
The importance of the principles of good corporate governance have been continually highlighted during this period of ongoing difficulty in the international finance sector. Strong Corporate Governance is not just about legal and regulatory compliance, it underpins sustainable profitability. We know banks in emerging markets have some particular challenges in this area. Our courses are designed to give owners, directors, and management in these banks a practical grounding in overcoming these difficulties.
Strategy, Organisation and Change Management
Some banks have problems with strategy. Very often they have a strong idea of what they want to achieve underpinned sound reasoning, but the outcome is poor. We train bankers in not only how to develop a strong strategy, but also how to make sure that the strategy is actually implemented effectively.
Banking the SME Sector
Many banks in emerging markets are looking to the SME sector to drive customer and profit growth over the medium-long term. However, we understand that banking SME customers can be difficult where the business environment is not supportive. Our courses give delegates access to practical tools and techniques to help address many of these barriers.
