In addition to training on specific topics, mch is also experienced in facilitating action learning. This is where a group helps an individual with a real and current issue they are facing.

Face to Face and Online

mch delivers training face to face and online. While a significant amount of mch’s face to face training is conducted in Southern England, we travel throughout the United Kingdom. mch also works overseas and has worked in Australia, Spain, The Middle East and Ireland. Due to the climate crisis, mch is committed to travelling by train, whenever possible, for face to face work, even for its overseas work.

In-House and Tailored

In addition to working with the training coordinator, mch often contacts each individual participant prior to in-house training, so they can candidly share their most pressing training needs. Respected self-assessments and profiling tools can also be incorporated in advance, so that participants more fully appreciate the importance of the training and its personal relevance. mch also offers participants various reminders in the weeks following the training, so that the content continues to percolate long after the training formally ends. Practical and scientifically proven ways of making development stick are also provided to promote enduring, positive change.

mch has developed these courses in line with its values of equality and service. They are dedicated to organisations which have very small training budgets, or individuals who don’t want to wait until the next open course to obtain assistance with their problems, or progress with their development. The emotional intelligence course also offers you the opportunity to help a cause you are passionate about, as half the course fee can be donated to a charity of your choice.

mch has also developed the following course on behalf of the Cultural Enterprises Academy:

We also deliver seminars and speak at conferences. Over the course of an hour or two, mch’s Director, Dr Mark Hughes, can:

  1. Introduce a new idea e.g. What is emotional intelligence?
  2. Highlight the importance and relevance of a topic e.g. Management’s core role: the employee ‘life-cycle’
  3. Share experiences e.g. What it Takes to Succeed: Learnings from an Aboriginal Sports Club
  4. Outline how to develop a particular competence e.g. Developing high impact communication

Get in touch to discuss your training needs, or if you would like Mark to speak at your event.
