Motivate Training Days

We run our one-day bespoke Motivate Training Days throughout the year and we aim to cover as much of Britain as possible. They’re usually held on a Saturday, organised by a local party, but open to a wider area (such as a county). The organisers can tailor the day’s sessions; we provide the trainer/s, material and cover our own travel costs.
