Disney offer their world class training to Scottish businesses

Businesses in Scotland are to be given the chance in September to really up their game as they will be on the receiving end of some top class business training from the world leaders; the Disney Institute. The trainers will be flown in specially from Orlando for the full day of Disney training that will take part at Mansfield Traquair House on the 27th September.

The class is being run by the UK partner of the Disney Institute; Quest for Excellence, and in association with their partners, the events management company Matchpoint and Thinktastic, the Scottish Motivational agency.

Aimed at chief executives and senior executives, the event is an ‘insider’s look’ at the business philosophies that have made Disney one of the world’s most admired companies and brands.

As might be expected, the whole day will be entertainingly presented – just as Walt Disney himself used to do when he was training staff. The focus will be practical outcomes and giving participants the tools to transform their business.

Topics covered included Disney’s Approach to Business Excellence are: Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence; Disney’s Approach to Selection, Training and Engagement; Disney’s Approach to Quality Service; and Disney’s Approach to Brand Loyalty.

In today’s tough economic environment, it is gives organisations the chance to learn how to revolutionise motivation and performance across the whole business by creating a ‘can-do’ culture and a brand excellence that delivers on its promises.

It’s all about developing shared vision with employees and giving them the authority to lead at all levels and in all their dealings with customers. Far too many companies are still light-years away from this, as so many customer interactions reveal.

Speaking of the event, Mike Stevenson, managing director of Scottish motivational agency Thinktastic, says: “This is a rare opportunity to learn from a leadership philosophy that unerringly delivers high staff morale, high productivity and high profile. It is not a coincidence that no global brand has enjoyed the same enduring customer loyalty or appeal.

Scots have a special affection for Disney – recently reinforced by the global success of ‘Brave’, the new film by Disney-owned Pixar, which has already spawned a demand in the USA for Scottish holidays. Brave 2 is already in the pipeline.”
