Before Start up,
It needs immense efforts in understanding the fact that what is the Unique USP you are going to offer to the prospective Clients.
Before that You may have to work out with survey with in your network and few companies as to which segment of Business provides a greater scope on soft skill training, Example - A customer care BPO may need this services to train there new recruits on soft skills.
Having done this, You may have to run some pilot training projects as demo to attract clients.
Use your network, social medium with proper content to expand your reach.
Hope More points comes from members.

Dear Rajeshwari,

Though you have raised the query, you have not given sufficient information about yourself. What is your qualification, the nature of the industry that you worked in, the department(s) in which you have worked, your likes and dislikes and so on.

Have you worked anytime in the training department? If not, then before you become a freelancer, I recommend you work in the training department. Your stint in the training department will work as a transitory period. During this period, learn why the training programmes fail and why do they succeed? Feedback on your delivery will improve your delivery style also.

Earlier, I have given an exhaustive reply on the topic of employee training. You may click the following link to refer to it:

What is your actual Training qualification? PGDBM is not a training qualification, it is business management.

You start with the wrong premise. You first need to find a client who needs training services. Then you conduct a training needs analysis, and from that you develop the training needed to meet the organisation's needs.

Too many people approach training as a one size fits all. IT DOESN'T. Training has to be developed to meet organisational requirements Every organisation is different and has different problems that need to be addressed. Training has to be tailored specifically to meet those needs.

The other problem is that people think training is just standing in front of a group of people and reading the words on 100 boring powerpoint slides. The trainees can read those slides back at their desk without the need of a trainer. Training needs to be interactive. When I train, I make the trainees do the talking and undertake activities. I just walk around and facilitate. That way people learn and have a much better time. None of my courses have powerpoint slides, so people don't get bored.

Almost everyone hates being forced to do training and will actively resist. What will make YOUR training different? Why will people WANT to attend your training?
