Training Venues Perth

The Swan River Rowing Club is a great venue for your next corporate training event.

Facing directly onto the banks of the Swan River, SRRC offers a relaxing, professional and distraction-free venue in which to conduct corporate and organisational training sessions.

The Benefits of Offsite Training

Instructing your staff on new products, processes or strategies can be challenging. Some people can be resistant to change and struggle to really focus during training sessions when they are distracted by what they perceive are more pressing tasks that require their attention. If you’re conducting your training in the office conference room, chances are some of your staff will more centred on their looming deadlines or unfinished ‘to-do’ lists rather than the training material being presented to them. There has been considerable evidence to suggest that taking your staff offsite for training goes a long way to improving focus and building engagement with the subject matter. By removing staff from their usual working environment, they are better able to concentrate on the material at hand without the usual phone, email and co-worker distractions encountered in the office.

Utilising a dedicated, offsite venue for training can also contribute to improved staff morale overall. Training your staff at a dedicated venue can help them feel that they are valued members of the team and that their employer is prepared to make the necessary investment in their ongoing development. But hiring a training venue in or around Perth can be expensive. Specialist training facilities are often costly and can also require minimum booking durations that do not meet the requirements of small to medium businesses. This is where SRRC differs.

SRRC as a Venue for Company Training Events

Hiring the function room at SRRC offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional Perth training venues. We offer flat, low-rate fees for a choice of morning, afternoon, evening or whole day sessions during both weekdays and weekends which allows our corporate clients to select the time and duration that best suits their needs. Included in the venue hire is use of the club’s tables and chairs and additional equipment, such as white boards and microphones can be hired for a small additional fee. SRRC’s function room features modern bathroom facilities as well as a semi-commercial kitchen allowing organisations to arrange the appropriate catering for their training event through the caterer of their choice. With capacity for between 85 and 150 people, depending on the required furniture configuration, the venue also features an expansive balcony overlooking the river that is ideal for breakout and informal discussion sessions in between formal training modules.
