Our Latest Requests at CCPE
I am always surprised [and enthused] by the range of course enquiries we get – in the last month, we have had requests for:
- Trade Finance courses for an African bank
- An Introduction to the City of London course for a Law firm
- Generalist HR outlines for an FMCG organisation in Europe
- AML courses for a global financial institution
- Presentation Skills & Cross Selling courses for a group of financial advisors in the Gulf.
Because every client is different, we work with them to customise every course, making sure the objectives match the outcomes that clients want to achieve. This may mean taking into account specific cultural issues with communication, for example, or arranging for the training week to be Sunday-Thursday rather than Monday-Friday.
One of the best requests we ever had was from a successful musician and songwriter who suddenly & unexpectedly found himself inheriting an insurance company! He needed to be brought up to speed on the insurance and financial markets within 3 days – I am proud to say we managed to get him to a level where he understood his inheritance and how it worked as well as providing one-to-one support going forward.
One of my most enjoyable training experiences was working with an executive so busy that his only free time was when he was flying around the world. Trying to teach whilst flying business class across the Atlantic was challenging enough before wi-fi was widely available on aeroplanes – it might be much more difficult to do now!
