Brexit – Leads to High Demand for Training

With Brexit creating uncertainty and confusion about import-export changes, our members contact us regularly to seek confirmation and clarity and it was clear that training and development on Brexit readiness was required.

After successfully securing a grant from HM Government, the BPMA created a Brexit Summit and a series of webinars to support the industry, in just two weeks. Registrations from members and non-members reached higher than anticipated numbers and from a personal perspective, it was so nice to see like-minded industry peers engaged and ready to learn something new. It made me think about what training the trade association needs to create to maintain this level of demand and engagement.

I’d love to hear from members and non-members to see what we can do to support you even further. Free training is always popular but cannot always be maintained. We are committed to training and developing the professionals within the industry but we also need your feedback on what you want us to train on. The perceptions and expectations of the association from a training and development perspective are so varied but I’d like to hear it all.

Training presents a prime opportunity to expand the knowledge base of business owners, colleagues, and all employees. We understand that many employers in the current climate find development opportunities costly, but it needn’t be if you chose to utilise the training through the BPMA. Training and development provides both the individual and the organisation with benefits that make the cost and time a worthwhile investment.

The return on investment from training and development of employees is a no-brainer, especially when you see someone motivated and inspired by what they have learnt. So many of our members utilise the education programme that we offer, if you want help implementing this into your induction programme for new staff then I’d be happy to help. On another note, I’d like to thank Brexit Summit and Brexit Webinar delegates for their amazing feedback. It’s what makes all the hard work we do for you worthwhile.
