First and foremost, you need to sort out all of the obvious factors. You need to find your training venue and you need to determine what day and time you want the event to take place.

Make sure you factor in travel arrangements as well. If your staff are going to spend the entire day there and not go to work then select somewhere with good public transport links. If not, then you will need to arrange transport from your business, such as a bus.

They can take over half of the day whilst you do the rest; or whatever is more convenient for you.
