What’s new?

First of all, a reminder – we can come to you to deliver face to face training and coaching. While online training (from our peers and ourselves) seems to be option one for many – we have had several bookings and enquiries of late for face to face support. Our training team can literally deliver anywhere in the UK and Europe. It’s probably more cost effective than you think too!

MHFA England accredited training has been part of our programme for a while now. The interest remains high – and it’s great to see such a hot topic gain more awareness. There is no shame in having a period of poor mental health. One in four of us are experiencing it as you read this paragraph.

The good news is we now have a #NewCourse to add to the Two Day Mental Health First Aider and the one day Mental Health First Aid Champion courses we run –The MHFA Half Day Refresher.

If you have been on either the one day or two day courses before, your certification runs out on its third anniversary. The half day course upskills and refreshes your knowledge and renews your certificate for another three years.

Our Lead Trainer & CEO, Warren Kemp is a MHFA England Instructor member – check out our offering here: Mental Health First Aid

On the recruitment front, we are currently reviewing, revamping, and reimagining our #RecruitmentTrainingCourse options for 2024. Like you, our team, on occasion, run recruitment assignments across a variety of sectors and levels. That way, our courses are on point, mirroring the challenges you are facing. Watch this space for a suite of 90 minute, half day, one day and two day courses to help you hone your skills in 2024.

And a look back:

happy recruitment agentIt’s hard to believe that it’s 16 years now since we published Warren’s iconic recruitment tips book ‘Don’t become a frog! 250 tips for Busy Recruiters.’ It was on the back of that success that we launched our popular frog logo. Given today’s challenging recruitment environment, we thought you might benefit from a trip down memory lane with the book that started it all..

“I attended an excellent recruitment management training course yesterday with Recruitment Matters International and Stewart Stone. I’d highly recommend them as a training provider.”
“A good mixture of listen and learn, and interaction. The time went very quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have recommended RMI to my Directors. I am now looking forward to working through the training videos.”
“This is the second RMI course that I have been on and they have both been excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending RMI and would love to attend more courses in the future.”
“All around it was a great course, good references, put into great context with who was in attendance on the day. Good size class. Was very pleased. Great value for money.”
“Great course. Job well done. Thank you.”
“I’m really looking forward to putting what I’ve learnt into practice.”
“The course last week was a breath of fresh air and Neil won a £100k HR Director search and I won a £200k Commercial Director search.”
“Excellent format, pace and approach to training. No role plays and condescending content, which make this a must for all experienced recruiters. Thoroughly recommended!!”
“Very enjoyable and informative, gave lots of food for thought and I have provided positive feedback to our company directors.”
“I went into the course with management experience, and whilst a lot of the content I had heard/read previously, there were several ‘light bulb’ moments for me thanks to the way that the training was delivered.”
“Great course, great trainer and delegates.”
“Thoroughly enjoyable, with plenty learned.  Stewart was able to facilitate healthy discussion in each of the key topics as well as highlight a number of real life examples relating to the course content. I have a number of key action points from the course and look forward to seeing the results that follow.”
“Thanks ever so much for today. I am so excited about going into work on Monday to try everything out. I’ve had a lot of training in my time and you are by far and away the most inspiring person I’ve had the pleasure to get insight from.”
“The course was excellent and unlike other courses I have been on really dealt with issues/challenges we face as recruiters, providing both an understanding of the issue and also strategies to beat them. Can you keep me advised of future courses/seminars? Thanks for an excellent day.”
“I was on the Head-Hunting course yesterday and wanted to get a message to Warren thanking him for the day. I have been on a LOT of training courses during my 17 years (!) in sales and found his course really beneficial.”
“I think the course was run exceptionally well and covered areas that are not solely useful to head-hunting but to all aspects of recruitment. Moreover, the resources used and given out to supplement the course itself are well laid out and user-friendly.”
“I found the course very interesting stimulating and motivating. Excellent location and presented in a manner which kept my attention.”
