Heni joined the team at Lane End ten years ago as Director of Sales & Marketing. He has worked tirelessly to build the venue's reputation and brand, improving the conference experience for our customers and promoting excellent levels of customer retention.
Company meetings can be incredibly productive and an ample opportunity for teams to come together to plan strategy, organise events or set goals and objectives. However, they can also be the source of great unproductivity and used as an opportunity for staff to catch up on what they watched on T.V. the night before or have shallow discussions about the same old subjects.
At Lane End, we pride ourselves on providing high quality facilities with matching service. Throughout 2018, we surveyed a number of our customers to recieve feedback on things like customer service, quality of facilities and whether or not customers would recommend us to a colleague. We are incredibly proud of the results and and feel they reflect just how far Lane End has developed in the last year...
We’re proud to announce that we’ve started Lane End Conference Centre’s 50th year in business on a high.

Workplace training should be embedded into any business that wants to thrive. With continually changing technology and increasingly competitive markets, training your staff to become more adaptable to change will only benefit your business. So, what is the true cost of not training your staff?
As we approach the festive countdown there is always a danger that businesses may suffer the consequences of reduced productivity in the workplace. Keeping your staff motivated during this period can certainly be a challenge. So how can companies ensure that crucial things such as team development and personal learning don’t fall to the wayside in favour of some sneaky online shopping?
From corporate seminars to sales, health and safety or management courses, this modern age is awash with different tactics when it comes to engaging and motivating your workforce.
What does remain constant however, is the universal truth that staff training is vitally important to a company’s bottom line. The question is – what is the most effective way to educate your team so that maximum benefit is gained from each course or seminar.
The most recent figures have shown that 26% of adults have been diagnosed with at least one mental disorder – an increase of 68% in just 7 years from the 17.6% it was at in 2014. Even more alarmingly is the forecast that by 2030 approximately there will be 2 million more adults with a mental health condition than there were in 2013.
