Guide to hiring your first London training room

When hiring a venue, it’s important to think about what you expect from the experience. Training rooms can be vastly different depending on the preferred use of the venue, so it’s nice to understand what makes them different from each other. In order to help you find the best training room for your specific activity, we made a list of points you should consider when hiring a London training room:

  • The time of your event. Is it going to be a recurring training session, or just a one-off? How long is it going to take? And in what time frame do you want it to happen?  You should check how long an average training session should take depending on the amount of content you need to go through.
  • The number of attendees. Choosing a venue that will perfectly accommodate the number of people you anticipate will help liven up the atmosphere of your training session. Not to mention making it easier on your budget. You should always be aware of the total number of attendees to expect , and, if you work in a hybrid work environment, how many of them will physically come to the meeting. When in doubt, just use email (or your company’s messaging system) to request an RSVP for the event.
  • Your budget. How much can you spend for additional seats or facilities? It’s usually best to get your budget signed off once you’ve estimated the headcount of your training. The longer the meeting, the higher the chance you’re going to need to arrange amenities like food and beverages, so bear that in mind when deciding on your budget.
  • The location. Which part of London would be the most convenient for you to get to? If you expect attendees from many different parts of the city, you should go for a central location that’s easy to reach by Tube. You can even ask them how they are planning to commute and find out if any of them are in a similar area. Having your training venue within walking distance of everyone would obviously be the best option. When looking at a specific venue or building, it’s good to also check out the availability of parking as well as the status of accessibility features such as elevators and mobility ramps.
  • The type of training room. What’s the session’s main purpose and what type of space would suit it best? Are you organising a corporate executive training course, a fitness session or IT training in a computer room? Depending on these factors, your needs for gear and facilities will be vastly different. Whether you need to book a training room in London with computers, internet access, webcams, conferencing gear, mics, projectors or flipcharts, completely depends upon  your training plan. Remember to speak with your venue manager if you need something specific, or if you want to know some details about the gear provided with the venue.
  • Catering. Depending on the length of the training, you may want to include some sort of food and drink during the breaks. Some training sessions take an entire workday, so giving the trainees a chance to take their lunch break is pretty crucial in this situation.

Although this seems like a long list of things to bear in mind, if you take these things into consideration, it’s going to be super easy to find a venue that will suit all of your needs. The more answers you can get from the venue manager, the better prepared you’ll be for your training session. And remember, your energy, confidence and thorough knowledge of the topic will carry your audience through the day, so take the time to prepare well as this will help ensure that your presentation is successful. After all, if you cover all your bases and make sure both you and your audience are comfortable, everything else should fall into place.

How to plan a training session that actually works

If you haven’t been teaching or training other people much in your life, planning a training session for your colleagues may seem like a daunting task. But with our help you’re going to plan and execute a great training course, no matter if you’re helping to train a team for your job, or making a public course. Below, we’ve set out a list of tips and tricks on how to prepare a successful training for your students or coworkers:

  • Get some feedback before the training. Have a few of your colleagues take a look at your training plan so you can get some useful feedback ahead of your presentation.
  • Be well prepared. Ensure that you’re completely comfortable with all of your material and arrive early so you have plenty of time to set up. The more time you spend on rehearsing your material, the more snappy and concise your presentation will be.
  • Introduce yourself to the trainees. At the beginning of your presentation, give attendees some background information about yourself, the topic, and what will be covered during the session. Maybe a quick icebreaker would be helpful if you’re going to need a lot of engagement from your audience?
  • Bring your material to life. Try to work in personal anecdotes or good case studies (fun, real-life examples work best). This will help you maintain the trainees’ attention. It works best before and after the most boring and technical parts of your presentation.
  • Make your presentation pop. If you want to keep your audience engaged and help them remember more from your training session, you should put some effort into making a quality presentation. It’s a good rule of thumb to incorporate a range of audiovisual elements into your presentation such as music, video clips, interactive images, and quick mental exercises. It’s also easier to capture information from slides that are aesthetically pleasing and well planned.
  • Encourage interaction and active learning. It’s easier to grasp a concept by using it. Integrate participant activities or group tasks into your session whenever possible (role play, trivia, case studies).
  • Keep discussion under control. If the group seems disengaged or participants are getting a bit too heated about what’s being discussed, schedule a short break or move on to another activity.
  • Leave plenty of time at the end for questions. You can also try to prepare for the most likely questions and answer them during the presentation. Getting early feedback could also help you find out perspectives that you wouldn’t have uncovered otherwise.
  • Give them your contact information. Make sure to put your website or social media page for them to be able to connect with you.
  • Ensure trainees have a way to give you feedback. No matter your area of expertise, feedback is extremely valuable. Whether it’s a web-based tool, like SurveyMonkey, a follow-up email or an old-school feedback form, make sure to give everyone a way to point out any potential improvements you can implement. Who said it’s only the trainees’ who have to learn during a corporate training?

6 benefits to hiring a training venue

Regardless of where you work, every company requires an occasional training session. If you have a lot of interns or newcomers, it’s always best to properly introduce them to your line of work and internal systems. Introductory training is crucial for quick and efficient onboarding. However, training shouldn’t be dedicated just to the new hires. A big part of your colleagues/employees would enjoy a chance to hone their skills with a good training course. Just make sure the information provided is relevant to their occupation and experience.

Here’s even more reasons why you should hire a separate training space for your next session:

It’s easier to focus in a fresh location. Hiring an external venue for your training could be a great way to break out of the work routine. It’s believed that unfamiliar locations make it easier for people to focus. So if you want your audience to be fully immersed in the subject and avoid unnecessary distractions, going off-site could be a game-changer. There’s nothing wrong with routine, but it’s nice to break it once in a while.

You will be forced to keep a tight schedule. Since you’re hiring a venue for just a couple hours, you will have a limited amount of time to wrap up your training. Hiring a training room for just enough time will serve as motivation to keep your training session moving quickly. Just remember to account for things like a Q&A session and bathroom breaks. It’s also nice to have a little leeway in case you’d need it.

Everything will be ready and set up for you. Have you ever found yourself fixing a gear malfunction right as your meeting was about to begin, even though you made sure everything was working just a moment ago? This will not happen in a commercial meeting or training room, and even if you do have any issues, a staff member can handle it quickly. This results in a less distracting and less stressful experience.

You can get the perfect layout for your group. Depending on your training’s main goal and agenda, you may want to have things set up a little differently. For example, the way the trainees are seated makes a large difference in how they’re going to behave. We highly recommend this blog post we made about venue seating arrangements and how you can use them to your advantage.

It will leave a good impression. Getting an extravagant training room with all the bells and whistles can serve as a way of showing the attendees’ that they are respected and valued. If you’re briefing new hires, things like these may compel them to stay for longer, while the more experienced trainees may receive a boost of inspiration and motivation.

It will save you unnecessary stress. Organising a proper training is no easy task. Save yourself some trouble by hiring a separate venue and letting the venue manager deal with the logistics. You will be able to focus on the content of your training as well as your presentation. 

That’s everything you need to know when looking for a professional training room in London. Now all you need to do is start searching for the right venue, do your research about the space (whether it’s browsing the venue page or talking with the manager), and make your booking in minutes!

Booked Meeting and Conference Space at Generator London
AMAZING! I booked this venue for a corporate event and the Generator team went above and beyond for my company. I simply cannot praise them enough. Every single team member helped out with making our event a complete success, you can see our video of the event here There was unlimited coffee, coats rail (didn't ask for this but one of their team took the initiative to go get it for us) we had pastries, our own tech guy and they even put on a member of staff to cover our networking drinks after so we didn't have to move on to another bar. Honestly, 10/10. Thank you to Nelson who I first booked the venue with, and then a bigger thank you for having such an amazing team to support us on the day. We'll definitely be booking more events with Generator.

Booked Meeting Room in near Waterloo at The Travel Cafe Waterloo
Great Location, just by Waterloo. Friendly and polite service. Easy to book, Kevin was fantastic at replying to my questions . Complimentary tea and coffee was lovely. The room itself is plenty big enough for 6 people, you could even fit 8 people around the table looking at the screen. The coffee shop itself is lovely, the plants for sale are great and although they do not sell food, we just took a very short walk and got a sandwich for lunch on the same street. Kevin is so accommodating we will definitely use this venue again.
