Andrea Speak, Managing Director & Corporate Trainer
Hello and welcome to my company.
My mother always said I was a bossy child, so it is perhaps not surprising I ended up owning my own Company. In reality though, Just Training (East Midlands) Limited, was born out of the frustration of working within endless reams of bureaucracy where completing forms scored more points than delivering quality, and to be honest, it drove me nuts!
So one day, after walking down the corridor at work, I thought "what am I doing here, I don't even enjoy it anymore," so I wrote out my notice, handed it in and bought the domain of Just Training, and here we are.
With a passion for "doing things right" and "going the extra mile" Just Training has enjoyed the longevity of continuous growth over the past 10 years, moving into larger premises in 2016, and developing into new areas of delivery.
Last year our repeat business rate was a staggering 87% and that is because our clients know they will receive excellent customer service, affordable pricing and attention to detail in all aspects of their needs.
This year sees the development of our Driver CPC programme, an expansion into Northampton with our new training facility, and an on-line learning portal in the pipeline.
I'm told that my team just love working for Just Training because they enjoy delivering quality training, with the right tools to do the job well, and feel empowered to make change when necessary. And that really works for me as a small business, because a happy team is a happy company.
My own background stems from around 30 years within the training industry, across a range of sector areas, but predominantly Plant Hire, Construction, Engineering, and Management, I have a lot of knowledge to share. I deliver most of our Business Skills/Corporate training as well as developing and designing new courses and course material.
Working for yourself is hard work, but the rewards from our customer reviews, are worth it.
