Bright Thinking Training Virtual Training Expresso Sessions

As with many businesses, BTT is having to make adjustments to how we deliver our training services, in line with COVID 19 restrictions. This includes the development of a suite of Virtual Training Sessions, which have been receiving excellent feedback due to the ‘short burst’ focussed learning, convenience and cost effectiveness of this approach.

We are excited to offer you a growing range of titles, which can be entirely flexible to your needs.

Give Susan a ring to have a more detailed chat about any of the sessions (and please let us know if you can’t find what you’re looking for!)

What is a Virtual Training Expresso Session?

Due to the challenging times we are living in, we are all having to look at how we ensure our businesses continue to function effectively. This includes ensuring there is adequate training provision, to meet the development needs of our employees.

Virtual Training Expresso Sessions (VTES) aim to replicate, as closely as possible, face to face training but over a much shorter period of time.
Our VTES, are interactive, engaging and fun. They provide the opportunity to ask questions, discuss issues and share good practice and offer a whole host, of interactive elements.

Here are just some of the features, we can use to enable participants to learn effectively and stay fully engaged:

  • Pre-workshop questionnaires/Pre-workshop Learning Outcomes Review

  •  Pre-work for the VTS eg. Reading, Skills Assessments

  •  LIVE discussion/LIVE voice Q&A

  •  Video presenter/Animation

  •  Assessments and quizzes

  •  Whiteboards & LIVE polls

Number of participants: Usually 10

Duration: Generally 90 Minutes

NB. Some companies are preferring 10am -12noon 1 hour for lunch then another session 1pm – 3pm which will enable a more in depth training session

Certification: Participants will receive a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Certificate

Titles of our most in demand sessions now follow. Drop us an email if you would like more details of session objectives/learning outcomes and workshop outline.

Returning to the Work Place and Re-Building your Team


There is no doubt that Covid 19 has changed our lives. As the nation prepares to return to the workplace, it is important for Managers, to think about how they can apply Government guidelines and reassure their teams they are returning to a supportive and caring environment. People will be returning to work in a different state of mind, than when they left, at the start of lockdown. Manager need to think more broadly than just safety compliance measures. How will you provide the support individuals need to re-build your team into a happy and high performing unit?

Managing your ‘Home Working’ Team


For many people working from home was a privilege, which not all businesses actively encouraged. However, due to Covid19, we’ve suddenly been thrust into a new way of working. This can feel daunting, for the team and the manager.

Juggling family and work commitments, as well as adapting to a whole new working set up can be difficult, for all concerned. For the manager, ensuring your team is still performing at their best, hitting targets and generally ‘pulling their weight’ in order for the business to survive is additional pressure.

This VTES is designed to help you manage and support your team in these changing times.

How to Improve your Virtual Sales Meetings with Clients


Leading virtual client sales meetings was a skill not all of us had developed prior to COVID-19. However, since lockdown, many of us have realised, how many more client meetings we can undertake, using this communication method. But with this new way of conducting business, comes a need to make some changes, to the way we lead the meeting, to ensure we increase the chances of a successful outcome.

With this VTES you will learn how to adapt your sales skills and techniques to suit the new virtual client sales meeting environment.

Work & Wellbeing


Covid 19 is having a huge impact on all our lives and as uncertainty continues, it can be hard to stay positive and motivated.

Self-doubt can overcome anyone of us, and the longer this goes on the more likely we are to be affected.

Taking care of our personal wellbeing and helping others to do so, is an important skill, we all need. Knowing how to build resilience is key to maintaining both our physical and mental health.
