Trainings are tailor-made according to group request. In a thorough briefing with representatives of the organisations and our staff, the particular training needs of the group are determined and individual training sessions are designed.

Trainings are carried out on-site or at the HSF’s modern seminar facilities. Our qualified and dedicated facilitators ensure a successful and interactive training experience that generates real benefits not only for the organisation, but also for each individual participant. 

The HSF trainings feature hands-on worksheets and elaborate take-aways with a strong focus on implementing the acquired skills and practices. We also offer training series, follow-ups and facilitate exchange sessions. Please contact our office for more information at
