Editor's note
If you are looking for persuasive arguments to encourage your MD
to increase this year's training budget, look no further than

staff with training had proved an eye-opener, while Tim Drewitt
points out that staff loyalty is boosted by training. But
perhaps the most persuasive argument comes from Jacqueline
Grimsley who offers the quote: "If you're asking what happens

stay?" Read more or offer your own suggestions at:
