The Power of 90 Minute Training
It's a fact that 90 minute, intensive, focused courses take full advantage of our optimum period of concentration, allowing information to be not only rapidly absorbed
but more importantly, to stick!
We’re all increasingly busy. There are times when we simply don’t have the time for a full sit down meal. Similarly, you want your people to learn some new skills and learn them quickly, but may not be able to release them for a day or longer. Enter the power of 90 minute training.
This is the memorable snack; enough of a taste to get people thinking, seeing things in new ways and trying out some new techniques. Grab something on the go.
Succinct, punchy and fun, our 90 minute training delivers learning in easily-digestible chunks. Skilfully delivered using powerful accelerated learning principles we provide participants with maximum returns for a minimal investment of time, so they can balance busy work schedules with skills development.

Our top 10 insider tips
Looking to find a bite-size training provider? Our tips below will help you ask the right questions so you make the right decision.
Ask how long they have been delivering bite-size training? As their traditional 1 and 2 day courses are no longer selling, many providers have recently added a reference to bite-size in their offer. In reality however, beyond the odd bite-size course here and there, few have much experience of actually designing or delivering it. What may seem to be easy, is in reality far more difficult in practice. We should know, as ever since 2005 we’ve been continually building our expertise to become the leading bite-size training specialist with an unrivalled range of courses.
Ask exactly what will happen in the bite-size course, why, and for how long? A good provider will be able to easily answer this one – you’ll get bluster, bluff and vagueness from those who have never done it! We’ll give you straight answers because our courses are tried and tested.
Ask who designs their bite-size courses and how do they approach this? Does it currently exist or are they going to cobble something together for you, buy something off-the-shelf, or maybe ask their trainer to make something up for you? We centrally design and quality control all our own 90 minute toolkit courses. We know what works. We deliver consistency.
Ask to see the materials that participants will actually receive and use in the bite-size courses? We’ve seen this can range from nothing at all, to a basic one page worksheet, to a random collection of handouts. We provide participants with a comprehensive, high-quality learning guide and course handouts in every one of our 90 minute toolkit courses. In addition all our training is CPD accredited.
Ask who will deliver the bite-size training, what they have delivered in this format, where and when? We approve all our trainers to deliver our 90 minute courses. We’ve found that whilst there are undoubtedly some talented ‘day course’ trainers out there, this does not necessarily mean they are an effective bite-size trainer!
Ask for at least three client references you can call – where they have recently delivered their bite-size training? Any great provider will have a large number of satisfied clients for you to speak with and you can then check out for yourself just how good you think their bite-size training is.
Ask how they measure the effectiveness of their bite-size training? We carefully monitor the impact of all our training as a key part of our continuous improvement philosophy.
Ask what guarantees (if any) they currently offer for their bite-size training? A great training provider will have total confidence in the quality of their services. We do, and offer a no quibble guarantee to all our in-company training clients.
Ask what options exist for professional qualifications through their bite-size training? As an Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) accredited centre, we can offer a wide range of qualifications (both UK and International) through our 90 minute toolkit courses. Beware of providers who are not accredited – they cannot offer you real qualifications! The ILM ‘Endorsed’ and ‘Development’ Awards are not recognised qualifications, although some providers may try to give you the impression that they are!
Ask questions to determine if they seem more interested in just selling you training days rather than delivering the specific results you need. How flexible is their bite-size training – examples of this? What additional expertise and added value support do they bring to the party?
