Training Fees for Short Training Sessions


I'd be interested in members' views on what would be a fair fee for training organisations to charge for the 'short, sharp training sessions' so beloved of us in these days of minimal training budgets.

I'm thinking of the 90 minute, 'lunchtime bytes' type of activity, on topics such as Change Management, Holding Difficult Conversations, etc.

Typically, would pay such organisations £850 - £1000 for a day's session designed and delivered, but am finding it hard to assess what's appropriate for these shorter sessions.

Many thanks for any advice!

  1. how much to charge?

    How many clients could you run these sessions for in a day?

    If only one then you need to charge 800-1000, if two then 450-550

    Its just what people will pay – its your business – how much do you need to earn?


    Another option is to offer a discount for a series, i.e. guaranteeing x sessions a month for y months

    How much to charge when freelance?



  2. As a rule of thumb – the same as half a day

     This is an interesting question – thanks for posting. I have done a few short sessions of this nature (on Mind Mapping, Speed Reading and Memory topics) and was at first unsure what to charge. In the end I decided that the fairest thing (for me and the client) was to charge the same as for a half day. I usually charge £800 – £1000 (+ expenses) for a full day session and a half day is just over half this amount. I think that you still have to do all the preparation and get yourself to the venue so – for the trainer – it is more or less the same as doing a half day. To make it even fairer I would make myself available to do individual coaching for the rest of the half-day. 

    I like the idea of doing several short ‘bites’ and rolling them all up under a single fee.
