Interview with SALT's co-founder and CEO, Annie Tang. 

What is SALT?

SALT is part of the Star Anise group and is a unique leadership and training platform. Unlike other training platforms, we tailor learning programmes for legal businesses or teams, or specifically according to clients’ individual needs in terms of learning content, timing and budget.

The trainers behind SALT are experts in their fields. For example:

  • for legal technical training, our trainers will be qualified lawyers
  • for soft skills training, these will be esteemed trainers in the communications or other fields of expertise such as exponential training, business development and lead generation for lawyers and other professionals, networking, driving employee engagement, or helping employees understand a company's values through role play 
  • for topics like coaching, mentoring, mindfulness, and physical wellness we have qualified professionals from other fields to deliver courses

What benefits are there to using SALT?

Whether or not you have a dedicated learning and development team or resource, we can streamline your efforts in identifying trainers that are suitable to your organisation's specific needs.

Why was it created?

SALT was created with the aim to fill a gap where, in relation to lawyers, there is a lot of skills and leadership training that isn't offered by law schools or indeed, by law firms, particularly when it comes to preparing oneself for upward career mobility, leadership, management, business development, building resilience, revenue generation, negotiations, and handling stress, amongst other things.

And for many in-house legal, compliance and contracts teams that need a refresher in their legal knowledge, finding the right sort of trainer for their needs among so many trainers is like finding a needle in the haystack.

With our network, we have the ability to source and provide custom made training courses to suit their needs.

And whilst our primary service is aimed at lawyers and compliance professionals, we can offer the same service to any business areas as many of these skills we provide training on are fully transferable across all industries.
