Communications and Booking Process

Flyers for each workshop on the programme are attached below

The options for booking are either members book directly with yourselves or directly with EMC.  There is a Booking section on the flyer which allows you to tailor your approach to this and advise your members accordingly.

If members are booking with yourselves, please provide the following information to EMC;

  • Delegate Name
  • Any special requirements relating to Disability and/or Dietary (where buffet is being provided)
  • E-Mail or Contact Address for joining instructions

To avoid cancellation charges for each module we need to have delegate names one month prior to each event.

One week before the event, EMC will provide joining instructions for each delegate to include workshop name, date, timing, location and car parking/access arrangements.   

Facilitators equipment/requirements

I would be grateful if you could arrange for Laptop, projector and flipchart to be available for each session.  If your authority has encrypted laptops please let me know and I will ask the facilitator to bring their own.

Room style

Could you please arrange for the room layout to be as conducive to learning as possible.  If facilitators have particular requirements with regard to this we will advise prior to the workshop.


Our facilitators are well briefed on the programme and are happy to open up the training sessions as normal, however if you or one of your Members would like to introduce the session and encourage attendance and awareness of the whole programme, then this would be definitely welcome.           


Participating delegates will complete an on the night feedback form which is currently in development. When the form is agreed a final copy will be circulated.

Please can I ask you to print these out and give to the facilitator at the beginning of the session and ensure they are handed in to either yourselves or nominated councillor/officer in your authority.

I would be grateful if you could return the completed forms to me by post to the address below or scanned and e-mailed to

If you have any additional questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact Lisa Butterfill, HR & Development Manager
