Knightsbridge Re-Launches MICA

New Management Training Courses Feature a Strong Focus on e-Learning

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2010) - Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions announced today the re-launch of MICA Knightsbridge, its new management training business. MICA, a long-standing, well-respected brand in the corporate training industry was acquired by Knightsbridge in 2009. MICA's consulting operations were merged into Knightsbridge's Leadership Solutions practice, while the company worked to re-tool MICA's training operations to best meet the future needs of its customers.

"We purchased MICA not only for their exceptional leadership consulting capabilities, but also for their exceptional skill in designing, developing and delivering superior management training programs", said David Shaw, Founder and CEO of Knightsbridge. "We have always believed that management training is an important part of Knightsbridge's service offering. Over the past year the MICA team has re-designed its courses to leverage state-of-the-art e-learning technologies to offer companies new, more effective and cost efficient management training programs", he continued.

Currently MICA provides instructor led training courses that focus on improving people's interpersonal and people management skills. Courses include effective business communications, management and organizational skills as well as creative business thinking. These classroom courses are available to participants either through public enrolment or by private dedicated courses that address specific training needs.

In January 2011, MICA will start offering e-learning training opportunities, delivering courses either through "live on-line" public sessions or self-paced individual e-learning that feature MICA avatars to help guide participants, as they learn, in a personal and engaging learning environment. Companies can also take advantage of MICA's new Digital Course Content Development services, to translate their existing traditional classroom training materials for effective on-line, e-learning delivery.

"MICA knows that professional development is fundamental to engaging and retaining top employees", says Charles Ivey, Managing Director at MICA. "These new MICA courses are designed to teach the way people learn whether in the classroom or online", he added. "E-learning is the future of effective business management training; providing clients with business training courses that are interactive, measureable, and sustainable and most importantly, cost efficient. Using e-learning eliminates geographical and time zone barriers while allowing participants to learn at their own pace", explains Ivey. "And by leveraging Knightsbridge's extensive human capital experience, MICA's training courses incorporate case studies that mirror today's corporate life," concludes Ivey.
