  Five tips for delivering remote training

Remote training is presently an essential requirement for many trainers. It is also a powerful and effective tool if delivered well.

Here are five tips to help you make your remote training sessions engaging, learner centred and enjoyable.

  1. Try to include the same exciting, engaging, interactive, learner centred activities that you include in your training room sessions (assuming you already do this)
  2. Give a good welcome to your delegates and use their names.
  3. Be creative - find ways of including activities as well as discussion in your break-out room sessions
  4. Use a mix of screens switching from screen sharing power point, gallery view and speaker view
  5. Involve all your delegates - don’t gravitate towards the confident delegates - make room for quieter people

Training in Action – Train the Trainer – providing trainers with skills, confidence and resources


The Syd Strike Training team has been privileged to help numerous organisations develop their in-company trainers.

We have helped organisations by delivering a variety of train the trainer programmes from one day occasional trainer courses to three day courses, mentoring programmes, writing in company training manuals, providing training activities and ‘on the job’ competence-based train the trainer courses.

One exciting project Syd undertook was to design a unique customer care course for the Dalata Hotel Group, Irelands largest hotel chain, with several hotels now operating in the UK.

This exciting course is packed with learning, fun activities that related specifically to the hospitality industry and skills training - the ‘how to’ part of the programme.

Syd trained numerous in company trainers to deliver the course as well as delivering taster sessions for many managers.

Syd says … “I have made many friends in the Dalata Hotel Group and have been privileged to help many staff and managers progress their careers”.
Dalata Hotels operate Clayton Hotels and Maldron Hotels within the UK and Ireland.

Never try to teach a pig to sing: it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.
