Energising Business Masterclasses™

Active learning for immediate application



PPG Masterclasses
Pragmatic Performance Training's Energising Business Masterclasses™ provide the key skills for accelerating business growth and profit, whilst recognising that businesses have limited resources. Our aim is to provide pragmatic approaches for individuals to gain new talents or refresh underused skills to accelerate the growth of their businesses. This is not training as you know it!

Based on latest thinking and proven best practice, our Energising Business Masterclasses™ provide practical hints, tools and techniques to solve key business issues such as Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Organisational Change, Sales and Marketing Communications.

Energising Business Masterclasses™ are delivered using our unique 5-level approach. This guarantees participants not only understand the key tenets of the business subject at hand, but also have the tools to apply these newly updated skills into their business immediately. Each Energising Business Masterclass™ programme is designed to minimise disruption and reduce the risk of overloading businesses with limited resources. Delivered over 5 months, each programme consists of:
  • 5 x half-day interactive group workshops (limited to a maximum of 15 participants) delivered once a month. This is the only part of the Masterclass that takes participants out of their workplace but the benefits of networking and learning far outweigh the interruption time.
  • 4 x revision video/podcasts, delivered in the workplace (either as a DVD or by access to a website) which provide additional practical tools and techniques between the workshops
  • 3 x coaching sessions, delivered by telephone to support participants as they implement their new skills
  • 2 x one-to-one on-site consultancy visits, which focus on the participant's specific workplace issues
  • 1 x Masterclass Manual to use as on-going source of skills and knowledge.
Pragmatic Performance Training present a rolling series of Energising Business Masterclasses™ - click on PPG Events below to see the dates of the current programme.

For businesses wanting 6 or more people to attend a Masterclass, it can be designed and delivered specifically tailored to your organisation’s needs. Subject areas include:

  • Entrepreneurship - where to focus limited resources in a new venture to guarantee a flying start and profitable future

  • Business Strategy for SMEs - how to plan, lead & motivate to inspire profitable & sustainable growth

  • Acquiring New Customers - how to win more business with the type of customers you want
