Training programs delivered by Vectis create real change. All programs are based on current best practice methodologies, scientific principles of learning and development, and time-tested wisdom in the field of interpersonal communication, management and professional selling techniques.
Effective adult learning programs
We recognise how important it is for any training course to apply adult learning principles. And we know most one-shot training workshops don’t really deliver the full benefits employers are looking for. That’s why wherever possible we seek to create a learning solution that provides a development journey for participants.

Ideally the development journey will include:
- A customised program including research and company-specific examples
- Pre-work by all participants
- A series of development sessions, spaced to allow application of concepts
- Post-session activities to help embed the learning and see the knowledge and skills transferred from the workshop to the workplace
We also help managers to support their team by helping them see how they can coach their reports to continue the learning in their day-to-day work.
Importantly, all programs are significantly tailored to suit the requirements of your team and your company. To maximise results we’ll explore your goals, preferences and desired outcomes to create an effective learning program.
Our key difference:
There are many trainers around who just ‘train’. They don’t stick around to help with implementing the processes or skills that were the focus of the training, and they certainly don’t develop a deeper understanding of your business. They just train, and leave.
In contrast, our approach is to look at training as a key component of achieving your business growth goals. We take time to understand why training is needed, what it should cover and who should be involved. Then we develop a customised program based on best practices in that field and gain input from management and the team to ensure the training time is laser focused on the areas to improve.
Customised Online Training
We combine the convenience of online instructor-led training with the effectiveness of a customised in-house program and proven content modules. Our approach is customised to suit your business and team, cost effective, time efficient, inclusive and interactive, and includes post-training support and management debriefs to ensure ongoing adoption within the business.
Our management and leadership training is always conducted in small groups so participants are actively involved over multiple sessions to learn and apply practical skills and strategies for leading others and managing their team for results. Our programs cover a range of management and leadership topics under the themes of Managing Self, Managing Others and Managing Performance.
Business-to-Business Sales Training
Learn professional B2B selling skills and strategies to accelerate trust and win more new business. Suitable for technical staff, engineers, product specialists, advisers, consultants, reps, and managers. Our programs approach sales from a ‘conversational selling’ perspective, suitable for businesses that provide B-to-B services, and complex or technical products.
Time Management Training
Our approach is based on our motto of “You manage choices, not time” and our personal productivity programs replace ‘time management’ with ‘self management’. Through our experience delivering this training to various groups and professions we have insights into the wide-ranging demands that staff must manage both for office-based and field-based roles.
Managing Workplace Conflict
Workplace conflicts often arise slowly and can brew in the background before becoming a headline. When managers spot the signs of conflict, and can address those causes, it becomes easier to maintain team harmony, productivity and employee satisfaction. Our program covers: sources of conflict, communication styles, emotional intelligence (EQ), positive influence, defusing conflict and more.
Presentation Skills Training
Discover the secrets used by professionals to design and deliver engaging technical, management, or sales presentations. The customised program includes practice and structured peer critique to encourage a meaningful learning experience.
