If you have said YES to any of these you should definitely come along to the next Trainer Talk Live Event!

Trainer Talk Live is a networking and learning event designed EXCLUSIVELY for freelance trainers. They provide you with a unique opportunity to get practical advice and safe space to talk honestly and openly about your business challenges with industry experts and other freelance trainers who have been there and done it too!

Dear Fellow Trainer,

Sharon Gaskin 

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

Mark Williams

·       As a freelancer, how do you add value to your clients?

·       How do you engage your learners before they arrive in the training room?

·       What do you do to support the transfer of learning once they have left?


It’s pretty much a given that most of us will pride ourselves on how we thrive in the training room, how well we can engage our learners and run fantastic learning sessions. As freelancers however, often we find that the training room or venue is our only interaction with the people we are working with. The first time you have an impact is when they walk in. Then they leave, all fired up to implement their plans to transfer their learning while we say goodbye and head off home.


Being great in the training room is pretty much essential. The challenge is that there are actually quite a lot of us that are good in the training room. Extending that impact we have beyond the training room, both before we arrive and long after we leave can be a very compelling USP to help you stand out to your clients. It is also a very compelling reason for clients to use you again and again as you build stronger more extended relationships with your learners. Many of the ideas, activities and methods you can use to do this are easy, don’t take much time and often cost nothing or very little to do.


This is going to be a fully interactive session , working in groups to explore this space before and after your training events: we’ll tap in to the collective creativity in this amazing community to build a toolkit of ideas and activities that we can all use to extend our value to our clients and learners.


What will I get from this session?


·       A whole bunch of tangible tools that you’ll be able to use straight away with your clients & learners.

·       An opportunity to work closely with a group of your peers to share experiences around how you add value to your clients.

·       A whistle stop tour of GiraffePad to see how it can support you in this area.
