Training Academy

The annual Training Academy is a major part of our mission to help our members and affilates reach their full potential so that they may support their members to do business successfully.

Our professional Training Academy is also developing training programmes for chamber boards and key executive leadership teams. The aim is to develop not only soft skills, but also actual work and task related training for key areas of running a Britishl chamber of commerce. Furthermore, the Training Academy offers the opportunity for best practice exchange.

The COBCOE Training Academy is managed by Anne-Marie Martin, Chief Executive of COBCOE, and professional programmes are developed and managed with specialist service providers and leaders in the field of membership organisations.


COBCOE Training Academy 25-26 April 2017

This year's Training Academy will be led by Nigel Tomlinson of Universal Projects (UP),  and held at the headquarters of Global University Systems (GUS), one of our Strategic Partners, in Holborn, London.

Topics covered by this year's Academy

The training sessions will use interesting and entertaining techniques to cover increasingly important topics such as corporate responsibility and sustainability, as well as digital transformation and innovation.


Using a combination of presentations, case studies, workshops and interactive exercises, Nigel will explore best practice in good governance in the chamber movement.
