Bespoke Training & Development Courses

You’re the managing director at a medium sized business. As a company you are reasonably well placed in your current market and have a fairly consistent order book. On the face of it, you have what looks like a successful business. But scratch beneath the surface and the cracks begin to appear. The order book may be steady but turnover levels have not increased for three years. Staff morale is low and arguments are becoming increasingly common among the management team. In short, the company is stuck in a rut.

Each year, thousands of organisations grapple with this scenario. While they may have achieved some level of success, they are struggling to find that 'wow' factor. If your business falls into this category, maybe it's time to talk to the team at Steve Black Enterprises. Steve Black Enterprises is a North East based business development company spearheaded by the highly respected and world-renowned motivator Steve Black. Steve uses his motivational skills - developed during his time training famous sports stars and teams - to translate the principles of success that work in the sporting arena into the business environment.

Drawing on the skills and knowledge built up over this formidable career, Steve Black Enterprises now stages conferences and seminars for the business community, looking at areas such as leadership, teamwork, top level performance, effectiveness and motivation. Not surprisingly, major clients such as the Inland Revenue, Northern Rock and Siemens have all utilised Steve's powerful motivational and presentation skills.

"Everything we do is tailored to the individual needs of the client," says Mark Black, director with Steve Black Enterprises. "Before introducing Steve to a company, we sit down with its senior managers in a series of one to one meetings during which we look to gain an understanding of their culture, the business issues they face and what it is they are trying to achieve. We then work with Steve to develop an event or seminar that is right for that particular organisation."
