Dear Fellow Trainer,

My name is Sharon Gaskin and I’m the Founder of The Trainers Training Company, the premier resource to help freelance trainers create successful and profitable training businesses.

Prior to founding The Trainers Training Company I ran my own training business for 10 years and know exactly what it’s like to experience the roller coaster life as a freelance trainer. Apart from the obvious challenge of attracting and securing work, I found personally that one of the biggest problems I faced was how to motivate myself when I was having a bad day or feeling uncertain about a decision.

When you are freelance you are on your own.Yes, there are plenty of networking events you can go to but generally they are full of people from a variety of businesses, they can sometimes be intimidating and you may also sometimes feel an obligation to say everything is wonderful when it’s not!

One of my passions is bringing freelance trainers together to learn, share and connect. Creating a sense of community is a key mission of The Trainers Training Company.

So often I hear freelance trainers say that ‘Freelance Training is a very lonely business… Well it needn’t be! Come along to Trainer Talk Live  and you will get:

  • An opportunity to meet and network with other Freelance Trainers
  • Sharing ideas, information and best practice
  • Valuable and practical business advice that you can take away and implement the next day!
  • A massive boost of motivation, energy and inspiration! – GUARANTEED

Can’t wait to see you there!

Kind Regards


Founder of The Trainers Training Company and Trainer Talk

Carrie Eddins

Supercharge Your Training Business With PR 

Have you ever thought about getting some PR to grow your business?  Maybe you think it doesn’t apply to you or you don’t really know where to start. Help is at hand!

In this session PR expert Carrie will cover:

*How you can get started

About Carrie 

Carrie is a PR expert who gets outstanding results. Her clients have
been featured on BBC Radio,  on the sofa on BBC Breakfast, on BBC News,
across the national press such as in the Daily Mail, The Telegraph, and
many many more places !

She approaches PR in a light-hearted and empathetic way; unlike many in
her industry. She has dyslexia which means she naturally looks at her
work rather differently to her peers, meaning that  her approach tends
to be more intuitive and emotional than logical.

Her works literally involves her reaching into her clients hearts and
helping them to express their view point on current trends and media
stories. For her PR is part story-telling and part opinion-sharing.

She has a real strength for responding to what’s happening, often in the
moment on Twitter.   Her responsiveness has got her clients amazing
results; most recently paid gigs for the BBC and with iZettle in London.

She is a vegan, a lover of hugging trees and loves nothing more than tea
and vegan cake with her close friends and family. She has been known to
adore the odd rom-com and soak in the bath too! Carrie is partial to a
train-journey and loves taking her friends doggie for a walk!

Lynda Holt

Is Lack of Connection Hurting Your Training Business?

Isolation poses an increasing risk for small business owners and freelancers. As humans we need connection, belonging and ‘pack’ to hang with – statistically, we do not survive well alone.

The number one challenge we face as freelancers or business owners is mindset. It impacts on how or if we show up, what we expect to happen, where we focus as well as how we actually behave. Prolonged isolation – including working alone, alters the way we think and behave.

This session is about connectedness. It will shine a spotlight on how you work, and where isolation – or working alone, may be detrimental to your business and your wellbeing.

In this session Lynda will cover:

  • Some of the neurobiology around connection and how to develop healthy habits.
  • How to combat common challenges of isolation, things like imposter syndrome, playing small, procrastination, distraction, creative block – have you found yours yet?
  • The power of belonging over fitting in.
  • Three facets of connection, yourself, your clients, your community
  • How to ensure you have a robust plan for staying connected.
