subject matter experts
need training skills!


It's a common blind spot!  Subject matter experts often feel that technical expertise is all they need to deliver training sessions.

Their default style is generally highly presentational, often 'death by PowerPoint'. This is ineffective for learning transfer, but SMEs rarely receive essential skills training themselves - do yours??

As is explained on the ROI page the total direct and indirect cost attached to just a single day's training by an SME exceeds £2,000...

...against that, attending any of the TAP Foundation courses costs
just £840

Think about it!
