Along with a representative office in Istanbul, Turkey, PROTRAINING now boasts of two fully functional offices to meet the growing demand for high quality business training solutions across Europe.
“I’m truly delighted to be bringing this exciting business model not just to the UK, but home to Newcastle. The city has changed a lot since I last lived here, and it’s a fantastic place for PROTRAINING to start to build its presence in the UK market – with real strengths in professional services,” said Ian Murray, MD PROTRAINING UK. As the exponents of ‘Experiential Learning’, PROTRAINING offers in-house designed business simulations as well as international training solutions sourced from the most reputed global training organizations.

Expanding into the UK was not only the next step, but also a key component of the business vision we have for PROTRAINING. Furthermore, having management staff that is experienced in the local business environment is an important element of our business strategy, this will enable us to positively shape the experience of our clients.” Patricia has also been extremely impressed by the expansion support provided by Invest Newcastle, a service delivered by NewcastleGateshead Initiative on behalf of Newcastle City Council.

Our soft-landing programme is designed to give overseas companies looking to expand or relocate into the City access to essential support services. Not only does it provide very practical help, it extends a welcome into the local business community, helping them feel at home and well-networked.”
