DVD-Based Training Seminars to enhance employee performance


Enhancing employee performance & effectiveness through DVD-based training seminars & bite-sized learning resources


1.    The business case

Our DVD-based training seminars are aimed at enhancing employee performance and effectiveness through highly engaging training DVDs and learning methodologies. The training DVDs showcase workplace-based scenarios dramatised by professional actors in USA, UK & Australia on different workplace themes such as managerial/supervisory skills, customer service/call centre excellence skills, recruitment/selection interviewing skills and managing diversity/conflicts in the workplace. The DVD-based training seminars are bite-sized, meaning there are no-frills (cost-effective), focused on results and targeted in approach. Participants are spared the long-winded theory that often doesn’t translate into measurable performance improvements. The focus is to close performance and competence gaps so that employees are effectiveness in their work roles.

In-house DVD-based training seminars: this is where we come to you, say on a Friday (as you’re winding up the week) in your boardroom/conference centre, even on a Saturday morning or on any suitable dates that fit the diaries of your nominated employees. The seminars will target organisation-specific issues that you would have identified. The pay-off for this is that it’s cheaper; employees don’t have to be away from office for a long time and can be facilitated either as half day sessions or full day sessions.

Promoting Efficiency through investing in people (IIP), personal responsibility and improved communication skills

With South Africa definitely in a recession, 2009 is proving to be quite challenging for some. Sales people are demotivated, managers are stressed and tension is running high. The situation needs to be managed in order to provide support and knowledge enabling and empowering us all to move forward. The temptation and opportunities for staff to resent the pressure and for teams to passively (or actively) obstruct the company efforts and initiatives are huge. Friends are being retrenched, sales people are being dismissed, warnings are rife and management is changing. Do not get caught napping! NOW is the time motivate and empower your managers and teams.

Our Promoting Efficiency seminars are being hosted as inhouse as well as at the open hosted venues.


  • Putting the economy into perspective
  • Understanding the different personality types in a team
  • Team and departmental communication
  • Understanding generation X,Y and the Baby Boomers
  • Setting and applying continual goals and motivation
  • Differentiating between urgent and important
  • Accountability as a part of our future


Staff Training was started by Debbie Engelbrecht in 2000.  Her vision to keep it real and help real South Africans find real solutions to real problems.  This hasn’t stopped her making them smile though!!  Her main aim in life being to spread cheer , motivation and knowledge.
