I wish to extend my gratitude to the entire team at LCT who have been very helpful. The trainers were highly experienced and I will certainly use the management tools and techniques that I have learned on my return to work. I hope to come back to LCT on another course in the near future.

Number one for Management Training

It’s the end of year and what a year it has been! In spite of political uncertainties across the world, LCT has enjoyed immense success with this year being the best on record since the end of the recession. LCT has consolidated its position as one of the leading UK management training providers having delivered training for clients situated all over the world. Clients from organisations of all sizes visited London to learn more about how to manage effectively – from developing the soft skills needed to communicate effectively and become a good leader, to negotiation and achieving a win-win solution with suppliers, to expanding industry awareness in order to make better informed decisions on behalf of the company, to learning how to manage projects.

LCT looks set to continue to lead the way forward for management training in 2012. More than fifty countries are now sending delegates to attend world class training with LCT in London and a record number of advance bookings have already been taken for 2012 with clients from across the world – Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Uganda, Kuwait, Nigeria, Cameroon, Finland, Armenia, Georgia, Lebanon, Pakistan and Nepal.


LCT Expansion

Our Business Development Team has also been busy making a number of trips this year including a tour of Africa to strengthen ties with our existing clients.

In addition to the London head office and training centre, LCT has recently opened a regional office in Kurdistan in the northern part of Iraq. Over the course of 2011, Kurds from a number of different organisations have come to London to learn the art of good management.

Research is also currently underway into expansion into other markets populated by organisations with training requirements. LCT personnel have visited Poland, Brazil, Morocco and Algeria this year to help forge relationships for the future.

As with last year, courses have been successfully administered abroad with our offering in Dubai proving once more to be successful. In fact, it has received such good feedback that it is now a regular part of the schedule and will feature in summer and autumn 2012. If you want to undertake quality management training in a city other than London, then Dubai represents a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons.

LCT in the News

This year, LCT has appeared in a number of publications. Highlights include:

The Financial Times – Ian Mann, Managing Director of London Corporate Training, was partially responsible for effecting change in the way visas are processed in Iraq having highlighted the inefficiency of the process in a letter to the Financial Times whilst simultaneously lobbying the UK government. In April 2011, as a result of these efforts, it is now possible for business people in Iraq to obtain their UK visas without having to leave the country. The full letter to the Financial Times can be found here.

To this day, LCT continues its work lobbying for a more streamlined and efficient process for those applying to come to the UK for management training consultancy.

The Daily Telegraph – Ian Mann and London Corporate Training were featured in the Daily Telegraph as part of an article highlighting the rewards of British enterprise into uncharted foreign markets. Mr Mann had undertaken a Trade Mission to Brazil in an attempt to secure training contracts from major utilities such as Eletrobras. The full article can be viewed here.


Office Closure Dates

Please note, both the training centre and head office of London Corporate Training will be closed between Saturday 24th December – Sunday 8th January.

We will re-open from Monday 9th January 2012.


We hope to see each and every one of you next year!
