New York City is bursting at the seams with students, all looking to learn, absorb and ruminate. The problem is where to train them and how to create the perfect training environment. With a shortage of fully equipped, affordable and conveniently located training rooms in the city, it’s a problem that many business trainers have to overcome. In a city of such vast opportunity, the facilities on offer fall short of meeting the demand of a professional training room.
It is this distinct lack of facilities that often drives trainers to overspend or choose unsuitable training rooms to host their sessions and training days. A room in a hotel, for example, could set you back a cool $5,000 (and possibly more, depending on the venue), which is a huge outlay, especially if your event is undersold.
For a training session to deliver the best results, the environment needs to be fit-for-purpose, offer access to good-quality training tools and equipment, and be in a location that is easy for participants to reach. Hotels may be in abundance around the city, but can they offer the right equipment and facilities at the right price? In our experience, adding AV equipment can cost an extra $1,000 on top of room hire, if it is even available in the first place. You also run the risk of being at the mercy of other events running simultaneously at the venue, or the general hustle, bustle, and noise of a busy hotel. Hardly a place for your students to shine or for you to inspire!
Another option is to hire a conference room. However, these are not without their limitations, either. Often designed to seat a maximum of 20 people and for the sole purpose of meetings, these facilities are usually quite cramped, lack training equipment and are not conducive to a positive learning experience.
It’s also important to consider that every student learns in a different way. Some may be more tuned into visual or auditory learning methods, while others may respond to a more multisensory or kinesthetic approach using a range of training materials. Having the right equipment and training tools on hand will ensure that you can cater to these different styles and help your students get the most from their learning experience with you.
Of course, you could invest in your own training equipment, but do you really want to transport bulky devices and training aids halfway across the city and then spend precious time setting it all up once you arrive at your venue? Wouldn’t it be easier to just turn up and get started with your training right away and with the right equipment at your disposal?
At WorkSocial, we understand the challenges faced by third-party trainers. We’re also familiar with the gap in the market for providing premium training facilities that offer the best outcomes for trainers and students alike. Our training rooms address these problems and offer seating for 8 to 38 students, high-speed internet access, audio-visual equipment and a comfortable lounge for when it’s time to give the gray matter a break. Our low-cost facilities are also conveniently located close to public transport and are easy to reach from New York City.
In a nutshell, we give you the space required to nurture and inspire. We help your participants train in a peaceful environment that is conducive to learning and that you will want to use time and time again.
Whether you are looking for a learning space for a one-off training day, or you are looking to hold regular training sessions for large groups, we have the room you need at an affordable price.
