Hospitality training

Every business is different and this applies to the hospitality sector just as much as any other, so we’ve put together a very flexible ‘à la carte’ menu of training solutions from which you can choose to create your own bespoke training programme. And it’s sometimes a very thin dividing line between training and consultancy, so the list includes topics on which you might want advice and support as well as training.

Area management training

There is a surprising degree of ambiguity surrounding the role of the area manager. Many senior executives in retail have differing views of the area manager position, the job function, the key tasks and the necessary skills required to be effective in this crucial role.

But as most area managers are being required to take on more and more branches one thing at least is clear – they are increasingly responsible for the performance and development of their branch or store managers. This means that performance management and performance development have become the essential skills of area management. Training and development in these key areas has never been so important. Hence this unique set of area management (and branch manager) training courses:

  • Workshop 1 – Role and responsibilities of the area manager
  • Workshop 2 – Managing branch manager performance – from recruitment to appraisal
  • Workshop 3 – Managing branch manager development – skills and situations
  • Workshop 4 – Dealing with under-performance
  • Workshop 5 – Career and succession planning for branch managers

The programmes can be run as a series or individually. Or we can tailor them to meet your particular needs – and if you can’t see what you are looking for then we would be more than happy to develop a programme specially for you.

And did you know we’ve got an updated website? You’ll find even more retail, hospitality and leisure training courses there.

Retail benchmarking

We also have some very experienced retail consultants who specialise in mapping the customer journey and in benchmarking. If you’re looking to raise your retail standards to global ‘best of class’ levels, then we can help you with the entire process, not just the training.
