Scottish Plant Owners Association partner with Intelligent Dialogue

We are very excited to announce that the Scottish Plant Owners Association ( SPOA ) have appointed Intelligent Dialogue partners to deliver some highly relevant training which is designed specifically for plant hire businesses.

SPOA is a trade association whose members are all interested in the business of owning and hiring plant used in the UK construction industry. With more than 350 member organisations, SPOA aims to improve the industry as a whole. SPOA members contribute £7.4bn to the economy and employ over 42,000 people.

Callum Mackintosh, President of the SPOA, explains: “It is becoming increasingly apparent members need additional support to navigate the current challenges they are facing. The reality is that costs are rising across the board and it is very easy to miscalculate the cost of doing business.

“There is more to negotiating contracts than price and it is our duty to ensure that we do our best to equip members with tools and skills to support them to run a sustainable and profitable business.”

We will delivering one training course and one development programme for SPOA, the first for hire controllers.

Hire controller Training

A one day course to develop commercial skills and thinking.  Hire Controllers are a key role; part customer service, part technical, part operational, and part sales and it is very commercial. The way customers do business now is quite different, so they have to operate across many channels. It’s vital that plant hire companies attract and retain hire controllers, and training has a huge part to play in that. You can find out more and book here

It’s a mix of training and individual coaching sessions that will develop a blueprint for their business and how they will apply and embed their learning. Click to find out more here
