LCT Newsletter – August 2011
Welcome to our communication update to our valued clients, at LCT
Keep up to date with all the latest events happening in London at http://www.timeout.com/london/
News of the ‘London Riots’ has swept across the globe with much television exposure and coverage of the unfolding events. What was an initial protest by friends and family outside a police station was seized upon by opportunists and, through word of mouth, this escalated into a number of disturbances across London and, later, across the UK.
Thankfully, these disturbances were not located near our training centre in Hammersmith and, as such, LCT has been completely unaffected by the events. Training has continued as usual and delegates have reported no difficulties during their time with us.
We would like to assure our clients that there is no need to be alarmed. The authorities now have control over the situation with large numbers of police maintaining order on the streets in addition to an ongoing operation designed to identify the culprits and bring them to justice. These efforts have led to calmness, order and a sense of security which is expected to last. It is extremely unlikely that the situation will deteriorate further especially now that order has been restored. London is now back to normal.
In some ways, it is perhaps fitting that we have entered the month of Ramadan, historically a time for spiritual reflection and worship. With the disturbance in London (and ongoing unrest elsewhere in the world) serving both as a stark and continual reminder of the more brutal impulses of humanity, it is important to remind ourselves of the goodness of humanity as well. As part of Ramadan, many of our delegates have been fasting to redirect the heart away from worldly activities and to refocus attention on Allah as a means of purifying the soul.
To, to all our Muslim readers from all over the world, LCT would like to wish you: RAMADAN KAREEM!
May this year’s Ramadan usher in a new era of Peace and Hope.
Trade Mission to Brazil
Ian Mann, London Corporate Training (LCT)’s Managing Director has just returned from a Trade Mission to Brazil.
The mission, according to Ian, has been a great success as Brazil is a country of huge potential and possibilities. Internationally, Brazil is recognised, along with Russia, India and China, as having one of the fastest growing economies in the world today.
Both in Sao Paulo and in Rio de Janeiro, he was warmly welcomed as large (and very large) organisations saw the benefits of quality training for their employees.
“This was,” said Ian, “probably one of the most exciting Trade Missions I have ever been on. I was welcomed with open arms throughout the trip. The potential for helping the businesses of Brazil to improve the performance of their staff is enormous. I shall be back again very soon.”
The trade mission to Brazil is just one part of LCT’s ambitious expansion programme which aims to make LCT the leading management training provider in the UK. Other projects already underway include the development of a permanent office in Erbil, Kurdistan and a number of forthcoming expeditions into the rest of Europe/Asia.
