Editor's note
2005 looks set to be the year for management development. For
many training managers this means the prospect of organising a
conference-style event and, of course, all the headaches that go
with it. This week, TrainingZONE member Jenny Kevan offers some
timely advice on the potential pitfalls and how to avoid them in
our Trainer's Tip.

Elsewhere there's advice on how to get on the first rung of the
training career ladder and Byron Kalies explains how to work in
harmony when delivering training with another trainer in this
week's Trainer's Diary.

Best regards
