What’s new?

It’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..

In today’s competitive job market, recruiters play a crucial role in attracting and retaining top talent. Designed to empower recruiters with effective storytelling techniques, this one day course promises to transform the way they engage with candidates and clients.

In today’s rapidly changing and uncertain economy, it’s crucial to explore new options and strategies to ensure your business stays ahead of the curve. That’s why we’re reaching out to remind you that we offer a unique opportunity that could significantly impact your growth and success – a comprehensive “MOT” for your business.

Just as a car requires regular maintenance and assessment to perform optimally, your business also need periodic evaluations to identify areas of improvement, uncover hidden potential and maximise profitability. Our external viewpoint can provide valuable insights and provide fresh perspectives that will undoubtedly give you the competitive edge that you need.

Please contact us for further details.

You are booking us for live face to face in-house training more in the last 3 months than in the previous 12 put together. Clearly your teams are meeting/working (at least more regularly) in the office again. Our team have been literally up and down the UK over the last 3 months.

The hot topic is Business Development – as the market tightens, the need for up to date BD skills comes to the fore. Old hands need a refresh and those joining the sector in the last couple of years need to have more than sourcing skills. And the good news is newbies can kick off straight from the training room.

If you want to discuss onsite training give us a shout!

MHFA England accredited training has been part of our programme for a while now. The clamour for tickets continues to be high – it’s clearly a hot topic!

Our Lead Trainer & CEO, Warren Kemp is a MHFA England Instructor member – delivering a series of accredited one day & two day Mental Health First Aid courses which run on a regular basis.

Recruitment training, coaching, mentoring and advice

“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.”
