About us

Talking Life Seminars is one of the UK’s leading providers of training and development courses. Part of the Talking Life family of companies, which also includes Talking Life Publishing, we have been delivering top quality training since 1997. Since then we have delivered continuing professional development training to more than 100,000 people, on topics as diverse as Stress, Wellbeing and Managing Change to Motivational Interviewing, Autism Awareness, and Safeguarding Children.

Our experienced back office team is dedicated to producing exceptional results for our clients through close attention to detail. Our courses are delivered by exceptional trainers – specialists in their subjects – and feedback from our training is consistently rated ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ by both delegates and those commissioning the courses.

In-house programmes

We design and deliver in-house training programmes to hundreds of organisations each year. Many of them are some of the largest organisations in the U.K., if not Europe, including in the Public Sector the NHS, Social Care authorities, Local Authorities and Prisons, and in the private sector our clients include Pharmaceuticals, Energy, IT, Healthcare, and Housing companies. We also deliver to many small companies and organisations including Voluntary organisations.

All our training is performance managed by a senior management team which is responsible for the training at every stage. This ensures rapid and effective response to urgent needs as well as assurance that work will be planned, implemented and communicated in a coherent manner.

Evaluation is a critical part of our process. All delegates complete an evaluation form, as does our trainer, so that we may feed back to you any relevant issues raised as a result of the training.

Customer Care: Our dedicated, professional customer team manages and carries out all communication between Talking Life and you, the client. They will liaise directly with you and the training will be monitored at every stage to make sure you are satisfied. Our professional head office team are experienced, enthusiastic and sympathetic. They have all been chosen for their outstanding communication skills and the friendly and sympathetic way they liaise with both trainers and clients. They are calm and helpful at all times, have a great sense of humour and are highly professional.

We rigorously adhere to all available corporate training guidelines, policies & requirements. So, whether you are looking for a one-off course or a bespoke programme we are confident we can offer you the right training for you.
