Hi, thank you for visiting my website, I’m Glenda Shawley and the Training Pack is my business.

Who would you rather work with, a bright young thing with lots of academic qualifications but little real experience, or a mature woman who’s been round the block a few times? You can tell from the photo which category I fall into!

I do have a level 4 adult learning qualification and am a qualified Prism Practitioner but it’s the years of experience that I bring to my work that are the most valuable. I’ve worked in big business (Marks and Spencer) and with a wide range of small and micro businesses from crane safety management to restaurants and retailers. I usually work with mature individuals returning to work after raising a family or those changing employment status in later life. My clients range from the start-up with only the vaguest idea for a business to businesses that have been trading successfully for 40+ years. The common factor is that all my clients have ambitions to grow.

So if you have ambitions to start or grow a business and could use some help especially with developing and implementing your marketing plan why not get in touch? Email hello@thetrainingpack.co.uk. If I can’t help I’ll almost certainly know someone who can. I look forward to hearing from you.

I’m a bit of a learning junky so I practise what I preach. You’re never too old to learn. Most recently I have qualified as a Certified Practitioner with Watertight Marketing and am now teaching the methodology on a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship.

When I’m not working I like to get creative in my garden studio (OK glorified shed!) especially with stained glass or patchwork and quilting. I also enjoy good food and wine especially when shared with family and friends and I love to travel and can’t wait for the world to become my oyster again.


Some examples of my work…

Working closely with MD, Jane Hardy, I lead the marketing team for this growing networking community. I develop marketing campaigns to win new members and keep the ones we’ve got. This includes managing our social media groups and developing materials, writing newsletters and other communications, and supporting Group Leaders to grow their membership. I work closely with other members of Jane’s support team.

We developed a website and brochure for this very specialised start-up and were delighted to be asked to re-design the website as the business grew.
