Training

Successful change demands knowledge and skills. Do your employees have the awareness and understanding needed to create a workplace of inclusion & belonging? 

To help businesses convert their strategy into action, Community Business provides a repertoire of signature training experiences which raise awareness, provoke and facilitate dialogue, change hearts and minds, and provide the motivation for action.  We achieve this through emotionally impactful stories, extensive insights from our research, and best practices from the region and locally. While we know what works, we also acknowledge the importance of your goals and culture – so if customization is needed, we can happily develop bespoke, practical skill-building programmes and workshops to be delivered in engaging formats suited to your audience and objectives.  Most significantly, we can bring to your global training programmes the Asian content, best practices and case studies we know are critical to success in the region.   

Audiences

We consult and train across all levels of an organisation, from senior leaders including C-suite executives, middle managers, and general staff. We work with our clients to understand their business strategy, talent needs and development objectives, in order to propose solutions to meet their objectives.

We happily engage with audiences of any size – large or small. Our facilitators are have experience working with individuals or groups of up to 200 participants. Actual group size needs only to be limited to the best fit to the content and design of an engagement, the goals of the client and the medium of engagement.

Besides face-to-face delivery, we are capable of accommodating other forms of delivery including pre-recorded and virtual sessions using multiple dial-in sites across Asia, utilising tools such as polling and chat rooms and to engage the audience.

Delivery & Design

We utilise the following variety of formats in our training, depending on the duration, the content, and the venue facility.

  • Expert presentation

  • Insightful videos
  • Interactive exercises (such as quizzes, games)
  • Case studies / simulated scenarios

Our workshops are most effective if they are delivered in person, but we are also able to deliver virtually.
