Editor's note
The pairing of training and HR departments is a marriage of
convenience for most organisations, but TrainingZONE member Nik
Kellingley thinks it's time for them to go their separate ways.
Responding to a question about membership bodies Nik asks: "How
many HR managers/directors really understand the demands and
rewards of training better than the training professionals they
employ?" Is it time for an amicable separation for the sake of
the business or is this pairing a match made in heaven? Have
your say at:

Trainer's Tip: Draw Like Da Vinci!
"Spontaneous drawing works wonders without having to be so
wonderful. Just basic shapes, with little more than connecting
lines and arrows, are all that's needed for that extra, added
dimension to your words. But when you need something beyond
basics, here's a tip; you can make as detailed a drawing as is
needed, with no artistic skill whatsoever." - Don't miss James

sketch with ease.
