Trainer’s Tip: Trainer Freelancing – The ‘How To’


Question Mark
Gary Gorman shares his top tips.

  • 1. As long as you're prepared to work hard and be flexible you won't regret it.

  • 2. The best chance of work comes through personal recommendations, so network as much as possible. This is also the cheapest way to market yourself.

  • 3. Think about your point of difference - why should someone come to you?

  • 4. Register on Trainer Base - £50 per year gets you access to tendering opportunities. I've already got work through this route.

  • 5. Speak to people who have done the same thing and learn from their mistakes. You will make mistakes just don't repeat old ones.

  • 6. Keep costs to a minimum at all times but keep your eyes open for genuine opportunities to publicise your business.

  • 7. Consider setting up a limited company it tends to carry more impact and tax advantages as well.

  • 8. Keep a sense of humour and perspective.

  • 9. The next call could be the one so never ever give up.
