Best Exhibitor award was given to us after we had taken a stand at the World of Learning Exhibition at the NEC in October 2013.
Our stand featured both our CMI (Chartered Management Institute) qualifications programmes in Management and Leadership and our bespoke training programmes.
Of course it could have been our banners, our special offers for some 1 and 2 day programmes (such as time management, introduction to management, managing performance, recruitment and selection) but we like to think it may also have been down to us, the two Directors with our friendly smiles and conversational approach to visitors to our stand and passers by alike!
We are always happy to meet new people and talk about our approach to training and personal development and this was a great opportunity to do both.
We met some great contacts at the exhibition including our own and other trade advisors from the UKTI. As we are registered on the passport to export scheme, we took advantage of their offer of arranging meetings with overseas visitors. One very interesting contact for us was Dr. Antoine Eid of Leapership who is based in the Lebanon.
We have now progressed our discussions with him to the point of having a collaboration for offering CMI qualifications in management and leadership at levels 3,5 and 7 across the Middle East – so it seems it was a worthwhile exhibition for us!
