Helping freelance trainers
to create successful businesses

Sharon Gaskin works with freelance trainers

Hello, fellow freelance trainer!

My name is Sharon Gaskin and I help trainers like you to become happy and financially secure freelancers and training business owners.

Developing the skills to be a successful freelance trainer is a learning curve – and a steep one at that!

You’ve probably got the training side of things down to a fine art, which is great.

I’m here to help you master everything else – marketing, finding and pitching for work, quoting (and knowing what to charge), managing client relationships, and so much more.

From free guides and blogs to courses, coaching and community, the support you need to succeed as a freelance trainer is here for you.

Join the Trainer Talk community
because independent doesn't have to mean alone!

When I first became a freelance trainer, it was lonely. I knew my stuff in the training room, but who could I talk to about all the behind-the-scenes stuff that was taking up more of my time than I ever expected? I made up my mind to find a community of fellow freelance trainers, knowing they had to be out there.

And that’s how Trainer Talk was born.

Through Trainer Talk, you can be part of an active online community of freelance trainers,
all at different stages in their freelance journey. Plus, you can access business clinics, spotlight sessions, expert masterclasses, and more. We also run Trainer Talk Local events around the country – Trainer Talk members get an exclusive ticket discount.

We’re a friendly bunch and excited for you to join us.

Sharon Gaskin, business and marketing coach for freelance trainers

Hi, I'm Sharon Gaskin

After leaving the corporate training world and working around my family, I went through (many) highs and lows as a freelance trainer, making mistakes sometimes and learning more than I ever imagined possible. 

In 2009, I launched The Trainers Training Company and Trainer Talk community to help freelance trainers get to grips with things like finding clients, marketing, money management, branding, pitching and much more. 

Essentially, I wanted to give others the support I wish I’d had.

I’m here to share my experience – and that of other freelancers. The Trainers Training Company is about helping you to feel happy, confident and supported as you build a profitable training business.

Get everything in place from the ground up and your business will enhance your life immeasurably – I promise!
