We’ve had some really interesting groups in The Chimney House over the last few days using The Meeting Room for training sessions, workshops and away days…We thought we’d share their views on our Sheffield events venue…
Clare Davies – used The Chimney House for a group workshop/training session.
I just wanted to commend you on your excellent training venue and facilities. I am a freelance trainer, on 15th Feb I was delivering training at the terrific Chimney House venue.I travelled from Manchester, so the joining instructions about how to find the Chimney House were very useful, the taxi journey from the venue to Sheffield train station was 5-7 mins as promised on your instructions. The training room itself was light and airy, the room was set up with water and glasses on each table for the participants, along with beautiful fresh flowers! I found the room was perfect for small or large group activity work, ideal as we were learning how to run small Focus Groups. We had plenty of room to move around easily for interactive exercises and then gather together again for presentations. The atmosphere in the room was really pleasant, with lots of interesting art work and furniture displayed. A pleasant atmosphere and surroundings is an essential ingredient for an enjoyable training day! The building itself and the training room in particular lends itself to a very positive learning environment, as a trainer this is very much appreciated. I also have to thank Vic who was brilliant in terms of helping with practical issues throughout the day e.g. setting up projector, flipchart paper, making sure refreshments were available, she was really helpful. On top of all this, lunch was spectacular (compared to many training venues I have delivered at over the years) it was very healthy yet delicious…ideal! I was so impressed with lunch that I took a photo of my plate to show a colleague how great it was! Thank you, I will certainly be recommending Chimney House as a perfect training venue for Sheffield.
Citu, Leeds – used The Chimney House for a team away day.
The whole team absolutely loved the whole experience. The attention to detail was phenomenal and a it’s a true gem of a venue. The food was also fantastic, so good in fact that we had to cancel our dinner plans as everyone was so well fed! We shall definitely visit again and look forward to the opportunity it do so. Very inspirational and a real example of something done right.
