Training and Seminars


Morgan Russell recognises the importance of training and the role that it can play in saving time and money, as well as enhancing the reputation of your organisation. Well-trained staff are key to ensuring that the correct procedures are in place for staff to work as effectively and efficiently as possible. Training usually takes place at our clients’ premises, although it can be held at our Esher offices if preferred.

Our approach is to encourage participation from delegates. We aim to provide a friendly environment so that people feel comfortable in taking an active part.  Depending upon the nature of the course and time constraints, questions are taken both as and when they arise and during breaks.  Delegates are often asked to break up into small groups to consider case studies to help them work through “real problems” to illustrate key points. There is no pressure put on delegates to participate, but we do generally find that the course is very informal and active as this is the environment we find most conducive to learning.

Delegates are provided with detailed course materials. The materials include clear guidance notes, check lists and tips so that they can be used as ongoing reference materials.

Health and Safety

We have teamed up with Catalyst123 to provide joint workshops covering employment and occupational health and safety issues.
