The true value of training
“Training is a discipline that business should embrace, but all too often, the value of training is underestimated”. says John Saysell, MCP’s Head of Business Development and Training Practice Manager.
Not, only does he understand the benefits of continuous training, he clearly takes this seriously in both his work and pleasure hours.
John is pictured below, as he put it, ‘dying a death’ at the top of a hill, in Brickendon time trial last Tuesday. Unequivocal proof that he practices what he preaches and certainly understands that a planned training programme will enhance performance and always pay-off.
