Learn more about the training that Speakeasy can provide

Training Overview

Speakeasy provides training for people who interact with those who have aphasia or other communication difficulties. We have drawn upon our extensive experience of training and working alongside people with aphasia to devise a diverse range of communication skills training modules.

Our courses are developed in conjunction with Rapport Communication Consultancy; an established training management consultancy which specialises in corporate management training and executive coaching (Rapport Online). As we increase our range of training options we aim to ensure our courses are delivered professionally and effectively. A training course can be tailor made by selecting appropriate modules to suit the needs of the people being trained.

Our Approach

Speakeasy has a unique approach to training, one we call the ‘Tapas style’ in which we offer our clients a menu of modules from which they can, in discussion with our training manager, write their own customised courses. Customising training ensures that we can target our client audience with the appropriate mix of modules for their needs.

When we receive a request for training our first step is to meet with a client representative and in discussion analyse the exact training needs of the target group. This will then instigate the discussion about which modules are appropriate to fit in with the length of time available for the training. Should there be special requirements we pride ourselves on being able to respond through the depth of experience available to us. The training can be delivered at our own training suite in Ramsbottom for delegate groups of up to 15, or in a location of your choice. Evaluation of the courses is always carried out and the results supplied to you for future reference.
