Customer Reviews

Here are a selection of reviews for our training courses.

  • I felt the course content was very useful and interesting to learn various techniques/situations to put into practise in my job role. The trainer's presentation was very clear and understanding, a nice interaction with all the group, with gentle humour added in.

  • I found the course to be informative and I very much enjoyed the day. The number of delegates allowed for a more personal approach which I found helpful. I have taken away some useful tools to handle difficult and confrontational situations, that can be applied not only in the workplace but in life generally. Having access to the post course portal for further support is also a bonus. I found the course tutor, Chris, to be engaging and would definitely consider attending your courses in the future.

  • The course contained a lot of content with good formulas/diagrams to make it easy to remember. Plenty of examples to help identify with each element. Use of practice and writing notes helped focus the mind and memorise elements. The trainer's presentation was very interactive and thought-provoking. Good sense of humour to keep all delegates interested. Held delegates attention by asking for delegates own comments. Summarised frequently.

  • Very informative and constructive, carefully planned out presentations. Well timed breaks and a very clear message and objective for each subject. I especially found the time management and planning very beneficial, as well as the SMART and wrong box/right box techniques. This course has not only benefited me as a manager, but also helped me improve as a person. Alison was a very knowledgeable and informative presenter, clearly understanding each members need to be there. An absolute credit to her profession.

  • The course was brilliant! Very informative and worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself. Will certainly use the prioritisation tool. The trainer was again, brilliant! Clear, inspiring and engaging.

  • The course content was really good for the role I do. I have taken a lot away from the last two days. The trainer's presentation was very clear and used good examples, the pace of the course was good and I feel I've gained a lot from it.
