Trainers Exchange is a lively, enjoyable quarterly event where people involved in learning or training get together to learn, share and have fun together.
If you are a trainer, training manager, or are involved in learning and development in some way it's an ideal opportunity to meet like-minded people in the sector, share your ideas and experiences with others, and develop your own skills and knowledge. The meetings are a friendly, supportive space where everyone can get to know each other, learn from each other, work together, and have fun together. A perfect opportunity for you to:

Our next event
Our next event is on the 15th December from 10am to 4pm. Our December event is always a festive affair, and will be a timely opportunity to reflect on the past year and focus on our own personal development for the coming year with like-minded, inspirational colleagues. Workshops will include:
Mindful Leadership with Eva Ruijgrok-Lupton from Everyday Mindfulness
We are all leaders: at work, at home, or simply by leading our lives. And in these increasingly Volatile Uncertain Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) times, it is imperative that we are able to respond as flexible, resilient and collaborative leaders to the manifold challenges we meet. Mindfulness provides a compelling approach to developing these essential leadership qualities, through honing our abilities to be aware in the present with an open mind. In this interactive session we will explore a range of Mindfulness exercises and see how they can support your leadership capacity, all with a sprinkling of Christmas cheer!
Finding your Purpose with Nicki Davey, Director of Saltbox Training & Events Ltd.
Having purpose or meaning is essential for a happy and successful life. People with a strong sense of purpose have better physical and mental health, are more resilient, better able to deal with stress, have greater self-esteem and self-confidence, and show increased cognitive functioning and memory. But it can be a challenge to define our purpose, or identify what gives us meaning in life. In this workshop, Nicki will use a simple storytelling technique to help you to determine what your purpose is. Through telling and understanding your own story, you'll gain clarity about what is important to you and identify some key actions for 2018 to help you focus on this, so that you can enter the new year with purpose and intent.
Braver Being with Lynda Holt, CEO of Bravescene
How many times have you wanted to do something but found yourself making excuses? Excuses come in different shapes and sizes, from no thanks I’m busy through to the stories we tell ourselves to justify our decision. The bottom line is people don’t succeed or fail, most settle for what is familiar, what they know they can do and for what they think other expect of them. But we can all do amazing things if we just get brave enough to start. As trainers, leaders and influencers we have the opportunity to create a culture of braver being. In this workshop, Lynda will share her process for braver being and by applying this to the things that matter to you, help you to understand how and where you can get braver about your training and/or your business in 2018.
"A wonderful opportunity to meet with other trainers from a wide range of backgrounds. Every time I take away something to use in my own teaching. The relaxed atmosphere is very conducive to trying out new things, ask for and offer help to other trainers, and make new friends!" Eva Ruijgrok-Lupton Mindfulness Teacher
