The one-year deal will see the leading training organisation sponsor all of the business club’s events throughout Swansea Bay in 2017 featuring a wide variety of speakers such as Scott Quinnell and Alan Johnson MP.

Established in 2003, The Training and Learning Company is a family-run business, which isheadquartered in Swansea but works extensively across the UK and overseas. The training company offers a vast range of fully funded accredited qualifications and commercial training as well as remote learning opportunities via their online portal.

After undergoing significant growth in the last two years, The Training and Learning Company have tripled their staff count and Managing Director Richard Allison has said he’s keen to engage with some of South Wales’ most prominent businesses, hence the strategic partnership with Swansea Bay Business Club.

Richard said:

“We are passionate about being based in and working in Wales and we see huge amounts of potential, both within the Swansea Bay region and further afield. By aligning ourselves with one of the most respected business clubs in the region, we hope to further enhance our relationships with many of the businesses operating in the area. I have been to several Swansea Bay Business Club events and they provide exceptional networking opportunities whilst being able to listen to some high calibre speakers. We are delighted to be sponsoring the club over the next year and look forward to working closely with them in the near future.”

Hayley Davies, President of Swansea Bay Business Club, said:

“We are thrilled that The Training and Learning Company will be sponsoring us for the upcoming year. This type of sponsorship enables us to invest in sustaining the growth of the Club and allows us to continue to provide an outstanding networking resource for local businesses. Over the past 18 months we’ve expanded into West Wales and have held a number of events in both Carmarthen and Llanelli, something we’ve committed to doing on an ongoing basis. The Training and Learning Company are joining us at an exciting time as our calendar for the year ahead offers speakers such as Alan Johnson MP, Sarah Powell, CEO of Sport Wales and Julie Gardner, Founder of Bad Wolf.

“We see a lot of synergy between ourselves and The Training and Learning Company. We are both focused on fostering strong working relationships between individuals and businesses alike and hope that our partnership will enable us to continue to contribute to the improvement of South Wales’ business community. We look forward to having them on board and welcoming them, and all our guests, to our ongoing lunches across South West Wales.”
