Commercial and Contractual Training
It’s important for you as a Specialist Contractor to be fully equipped to deal with whatever is thrown at you in the world of construction.
Dealing with contracts and negotiations, managing projects and ensuring you avoid risk and blame is essential to surviving and succeeding.
The commercial management and delivery of projects is driven by the construction contract and our targeted courses will improve your ability to deliver your projects effectively. They are applicable across the construction sector, irrespective of your size or specialisation.
Not only is Specialist Sub-Contracting a tough business, they are one, which few people outside the industry genuinely understand. That is probably why you might have previously found it difficult to find the right kind of training for your people.
That’s why we offer training in commercial and contractual matters. Arming you and your team with the right skills and knowledge will help protect your commercial and contractual interests, and ensure you maximise your profitability.
"Barry provided a clear and concise contractual position but then set out scenarios from real life experiences that changed the strategy we adopted; this was instrumental in reaching an amicable resolution of a difficult situation."
Phil Bradley - Jacobs LES E&I Specialist Sub-Contractors
Seminars and Workshops
Our seminars and workshops, like our training, are aimed at Specialist Contractors who don’t want to just plod along and take whatever the Main Contractors throw at them!
We have presented both public seminars and in house training programmes for Specialist Sub-Contractors.
The economy of a public seminar can be combined with the confidentiality of in-house training in a new and exciting way to bring you the benefits of in-house training at a fraction of the normal cost.
Our exclusively Specialist Contractor only Seminars have been designed to specifically deal with contractual and commercial matters from your perspective.
The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and designed to make your delegates feel completely at ease. Learning can then take place at much more effective level, where real life experience and difficulties can be shared in a confidential environment.
For more information on our upcoming seminars and workshops please get in touch.
"After attending your seminar, I am pleased to congratulate you and your team for the professionalism shown. I have attended many seminars now ... but this has exceeded my expectations.
I will be recommending your team’s services to all those I meet ..."
