We have experience of developing and delivering bespoke programmes to SMEs throughout the Leeds City Region for 20 years.

We use a variety of learning methods and styles in our workshops that suit the client and their specific learning needs and outcomes. We use visual and graphical information and we help delegates to practically apply theories and models. We use written case studies, we have group discussions, we play relevant games, and we have fun and learn at the same time. We develop action plans so that learning can be applied and embedded in the workplace.

Our 16 associates are specialists in a variety of key areas so we can offer a broad scope of topics to clients. Our expertise is geared up to exceed client requirements. We regularly meet associates to see if their vision fits with Lattitude7 and to determine if any new skills have been acquired that we can offer clients to make a difference.

For our export training we’ll be using our associate Paul Walters who has worked in this field for over 40 years. His expertise has been recognised by organisations such as the Department for International Trade, FSB, Bradford University and local government where he has been called in as a trade expert.

Paul has worked at Manchester, Leeds/Bradford and Heathrow airports where he was involved in the logistics field in sea, air and road transport both in and outbound. Additionally, he has worked in the manufacturing field for companies in electrical engineering, toys and children’s products and FMCG sectors.

CMBD was established in 2003 to deliver a large SME business support programme. Over the last 16 years the support programme has continually evolved to keep the learning fresh, engaging and relevant.

Our training, which is experiential, focuses on creating awareness and then providing the skills and tools to progress or overcome the challenges businesses face. The experiential training environment also gives participants the opportunity to try out the learning in a safe environment, this serves to both demonstrate and enforce the value of the learning and provide participants with increased confidence to use the learning back in the workplace.

In terms of individual training design, CMBD is a small company that provides a wide range of training solutions through a large pool of specialist independent trainers many of whom are practitioners of their specialist subject in their own practices.

All workshop and programmes have clearly defined learning outcomes which are shared with learners and companies when then enquire about a course, for in-house provision these are almost always altered in some way to accommodate the company’s particular challenges or working practices.

The trainer liaises with the client and agrees both lesson plan and learning outcomes prior to actual training takes place. The use of specialist practitioners as trainers is particularly useful in this regard because clients are not always sure what they need and the trainer is able to offer expert and up to date guidance.
