Launched in 2017, after many years of working in the education sector, Improv4Business was formed out of the realisation that there was a severe lack of interpersonal skills in the business world. Traditional training techniques on “how to present” were deemed expensive, ineffective, and lacked lasting results,
“Everyone deserves the right to reach their full potential, and we are very excited to help people on that journey” Alexander McWilliam founder of Improv4Business says.
The company is proud to work with clients all over the world, from start-ups to Blue Chip companies and from Apprentices right up to C Level Executives.
After noticing that a lot of young people, in particular Apprentices had never had any training in presentation skills and public speaking, even though some of the standards they were working for required a presentation at the end of it, the company developed a programme for Apprentices that could either run as a stand-alone course or help them with standard presentations.
In September 2019, they started the process of becoming a supporting provider, with the final submission taking place 4 months later. Final notification from the Education and Skills Funding Agency came through a month later and they are now recognised as an approved Support Provider.
Alexander further comments “We are thrilled to become an approved supporting provider for apprenticeship training – the team and I have worked very hard to achieve this and we are very excited to bring our world-class training to apprentices across the UK. We cannot wait for what the next 12-24 months will bring.”
“Becoming an approved supporting provider means that we can offer our services to those organisations who are paying the apprenticeship levy and looking or high-quality training for their apprentices. This will mean that as a business we will be able to begin to expand, hiring more support staff and trainers when contracts begin to come in.”
