Staff Learning & Development budgets have suffered cuts due to the economic downturn. More than ever, Training Managers have to justify a good return on investment to their board.
Switzerland being a very developed market, the competition (local and international) is very high. Specialised UK companies working on niche sectors/topics are more likely to succeed.
It is a plus if training courses can be delivered in French and/or German, in addition to English.
Previous experience in working with international organisations like the United Nations is a door-opener to start negotiation with other organisations.
