Attention Freelance & Independent Trainers

Do you want to:

  • Get more clients, grow your business and make it more profitable?
  • Get answers and solutions to the biggest challenges facing you and your business?
  • Collaborate with other trainers, build relationships and create and explore new opportunities?
  • Be part of a vibrant and supportive freelance trainer community?

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

How to Crack Your Design and Delivery Challenges

  • Have you thought about how you make your events, workshops or meetings work?
  • What can you do to put the learner at the heart of your workshop?
  • What are the core ingredients that are needed to make an event flow seamlessly?
  • What different exercises are there that you can weave into your repertoire?

As facilitators and trainers we will all face challenges when it comes to designing and delivering our workshops or delivering someone else’s content then add in the emotions and behaviours of the adult learners and boom the fun begins.

In this Trainer Talk we will be looking at the challenges you notice happen for you when you design and deliver and look at what can be done.

This will be an interactive session where you get to be both the learner and the trainer identifying what you can do to enable your workshops to run smoothly, effectively and with the learner at the heart of it all.

In advance of this day please share with us what your challenges are when designing and delivering face to face learning.

About This Speaker

I created School of Facilitation for us, the trainers, the facilitators and coaches.  As a trainer and facilitator I need to connect, learn and share with others and I sense others need this too. 

I create spaces where you can come and learn to resource and nurture yourself.  To be the best version of you whether you are training, coaching or facilitating you have to start with ‘self’.

Lets Talk Self-Publishing & How a Book Can Accelerate Your Career

Writing and publishing a book can be a very powerful business tool beyond just earning you a passive income. In this session, I’m going to explain the 5 ways in which a book can take your coaching/training business to the next level.  I will let you in on the biggest secret that will make writing your book so much easier, and I will share with you my 12-step process of how to successfully self-publish your book once it’s written.  This session will also include 2 short activities that will help you build the basic framework to write and publish your very own book.
