Developing Your Training Skills Just Got Easier You're just seconds away from the essential training, advice and support that you need to grow within the training world

Do Any Of These Sound Familiar?

  • You're a Subject Matter Expert who had been asked to provide training, but you don't really know where to start.

  • Finding time and a development structure that you can follow for your own training development often seems almost impossible.

  • Finding a new activity for an existing workshop or for one that you’re currently developing seems to take for ever as you plough through website after website looking for something that will fit your content, is practical and has been tried and tested.

  • You’re been a trainer for a while now but you’re struggling to stay on top of the seemingly endless new training ideas, training technology and applications as well as the ever changing methods of content transfer.

  • As a Training Manager it would be great to be able to connect with other Training Managers and share experiences and best practices as well as to ask for help.

If it does, then you already know how difficult it is to get quality advice & support from people who have been there and actually done it!

THAT’S WHAT INSPIRED US TO BUILD THIS PLACE

We were fed up with hearing about good Trainers, Instructional Designers and Training Managers with great ideas and inspiration, just like you, being let down trying to continue their training development and training success thanks to ...

  • A lack of guidence as you try to move along your development pathway.

  • Training courses from people that have no real training experience.

  • Training that offers lots of what you should do but no practical how-to's for applying it to your own training.

  • Theory after theory, Model after model but no practical application.

  • The theory of being a Training Manager and managing the Training Function, but no real life application or ability to ask for help and share experiences and best practice for real world training solutions.

Thankfully, that's all behind you ...

Meet Your Hosts

David - Standing
Christophe full

Hi, we're David Gibson (ETC Main Host) and Christophe Peger (ETC Host) - otherwise known as "Eureka" and we’ve spent years guiding the growth of thousands of trainers around the world in both English (David) and French (Christophe).

With a combined 55+ years of training Trainers, SME’s Instructional Designer and Training Managers (local, national and global) we have a proven track record of helping great clients to achieve fantastic training results.  We’ve worked with (or still working with) organisations such as ABB, Decathlon, Total Oil, Burger King, Médecins Sans Frontières, Acas …

We decided to take all that knowledge and experience and create the Eureka Training Community Membership Site (ETC) so that we could help people just like you to take your training skills to the next level.

I have been a member of this community for a while now and the tips and advice that David provides has been immensely helpful. I have incorporated many of his ideas into the design and delivery of my training courses.

More recently the question and answer forum has provided me with some practical advice on how to deal with some specific issues facing me.

I look forward each month to the Development Webinar (which I attend as often as my schedule permits) and sharing ideas with fellow training professionals from across the world.

Thank you for this invaluable resource.

“Until joining the Eureka Training Community, I was largely self-taught as an instructional designer. Eureka’s model for learner engagement and collaboration has completely reshaped how I approach instructional design!”

The Eureka Training Community is a new development that the YouthBank team has enjoyed and benefited from immensely. Easy to access and navigate as a one-stop-shop approach.

The development modules can be flexibly applied no matter what level of ability you have and can be 'played' with one step at a time. The modules also have a challenge function for you to think about and you don't need permission from anyone but yourself to introduce any of the features, activities and tips - just a positive attitude and open heart to make any learning experience you design memorable.

We're here to help you every step-of-the-way as you develop you first or next workshop.

Training Tips and Activities

When you're relatively new to training, it can be daunting to move from simply presenting to actually training.  Finding activities that work, can link to your content and engage your learners in a professional way is tricky even for experienced trainers, that's why we've created and categorised over 250 ready to use ideas and training activities ready for you to use.  All tried and tested by us - so we know that they work!

Plus we added a new idea for your try every 2 weeks.

Community Forums

Although new to our Community the forums this will be a great place to get feedback on your training design, ask questions and get answers from trainers who have been in your shoes or just to connect with other trainers at the same level of development as you.

We may be biased, but we happen to think that our members are amazing with a wide range of skills and expertise who will help you grow as a trainer.

Coming In November 2022

Your Development Roadmap taking you step-by-step through creating your first (or next) training.  This is designed as 6 modules that can be applied to any type of training design and are the foundation steps of great training design.

Typically, this will take you around 6 weeks to complete and implement.

If you're an experienced trainer, then it might be time to start topping up that trainers toolbox of yours and start exploring new areas of training.

Live Virtual Development Modules


Keep up-to-date with some of the latest training technologies, research and training trends with the monthly Live Virtual Development Modules.

These are ideal for new ideas, building upon your current training expertise and sharing ideas with other trainers from around the world.

Training Tips and Activities

This will save you hours of searching books and the internet looking for inspiration and ideas to use as you design or to refresh an existing workshop.  And they are all in one place and categories to speed up finding exactly what you need.

Community Forums


As you become a more experienced trainer your needs and questions change.  Although new to our Community the forums will become a great place for you to ask question and get answers from those that have already experience in your new area.

To help further your own development, become a respected expert yourself by offering help to others who will benefit from your experience.  This also helps cement your own knowledge.

We may be biased, but we happen to think that our members are amazing with a wide range of skills and expertise who will help you grow as a trainer.

You're probably not involved facilitating the day-to-day workshops but rather managing and leading your training team(s). Thinking strategically is key. That's why we've included ...

Live Virtual Development Modules

We've included the monthly development modules (some specific to you such as Measuring the ROI of Training) but also for you to get a great overview of what's new.  Your needs are slightly different.  You don't need to be able to apply the ideas as such but think strategically about if a new trend will work for your organisation and if so, how to best introduce it ie tools to use and how to best map it into your current pathways.  BUT FIRST, you need to know what's new.

Community Forums

Although new to our Community the forums can be a great place for you to connect with other Training Managers (Departmental, National and Global Training Managers and Training Directors).  Use the forums to ask them to share their experience and best when implementing a specific strategy or trend that you're considering for your organisation - and a place for you to share your experiences and best practices for other Training Managers to benefit from.

It's always great to get a different perspective from a Training Manager not in your organisation and maybe not even within your business sector.

"As a Director of Learning and Development with a career built over nearly 30 years, the Eureka program has been one of the most significant catalysts in helping me refocus what I do from the perspective of the learner. As a result, my team is producing more effective learning material and experiences, creating a win for them, their learners and our stakeholders.

Membership of the Eureka Training Community continues our development journey – connecting me with a like-minded network of L&D professionals who I can learn from and understand my world.

The virtual development modules are an excellent opportunity to ‘sharpen the saw’ in a targeted and interactive way.

Eureka is a game changer for Learning professionals, and I can’t recommend it highly enough!"

"At Eureka, I had the pleasure of working with David Gibson for quite a while. He has always struck me as being very professional and willing to listen and understand your business demands.

Being a member of the Eureka Training Community has been extremely beneficial to me. Every session, David focuses on providing fresh, innovative, practical advice on how to prepare, engage or deliver timely, and cost-effective in-person or online learning sessions. It's also great to collaborate with other trainers and share expertise, concepts, and challenges in a safe setting. The support material and emails are wide ranging and the fact that you can watch webinars if you miss a session, is a genuine bonus. The ‘icing on cake’ is that if required David is always happy to offer additional support

I would have no hesitation in recommending using Eureka Training Community Membership in the future as it is a truly value for money."
