What others say…

“Brilliant!  I could really relate to him and what he was saying.  I wish I’d known some of this stuff before.” (staff member, Thinktank, Birmingham)

“Last week I was having to deal with dominant individuals trying to wreck my event…following your training, I planned participation into the event, and it worked really well…wonderful stuff, and it saved my bacon…that’s what I call Effective.” (Training Manager, Cumbria CC)

“I just wanted to thank you for your inspiration.  Following your course I went from strength to strength.  I am happy in my new post managing my team and having great fun.” (Manager, Solihull Council)

“I’ve really enjoyed the training and value the support you’ve given me.  It’s not until you meet a difficult situation and look at other ways of handling it that you see the benefit in this type of training, in work and home life!” (Marketing Manager, FE College)

“A great session.  Inspirational.” (Programme Manager, FE College)

“This is what learning is all about.  Creating an energising, exhilarating, and refreshing learning environment that helps people learn.” (Business Manager)

“A fantastic 2-day programme.  This was the most effective training I have ever taken part in.  I never once felt bored or clock watched and have come away from it feeling revitalised, enthused, and extremely determined to ensure the business as a whole and the colleagues who did not attend benefit from the investment in me. Arnie was fantastic and I cannot praise him enough.” (Manager, Call Centre)
