definitely ticked the "let’s get some important things decided" box on the last away day.
Thanks for your excellent guidance!  

GM, Research Insights and Analytics, Major Telco

I've been able to manage an issue at home which in the past would have probably degenerated into martyrdom en masse ... I was able to recognise that some of my own inclinations and was able to identify troll-ing coming my way and not react emotionally!
 I'm very proud of myself and suddenly feel 'grown up'.
Senior Administrator, NSW Public Sector Agency

I’m looking forward to trying the new methods when performing presales presentations and engagements, I’m pretty confident it will get me follow up meetings.

The energy you create in the room and your ability to engage each of the participants and have us all engaging and practicing our skills in such a short time is nothing short of brilliance!

For me every bit of training helps me become more self-aware and makes me stop and think/focus on how I can improve and apply my current skills more consciously day to day

some very useful techniques and enjoyed the fact that we didn't stick to a theoretical program, and instead the training was specific to our needs and our particular clients

the effort which she made, to address our agendas as opposed to just running it out of the textbook

Content, flow & energy were exceptional. The feedback I got from a lot of people was that she is a good fit for [us] and shares excellent knowledge.

Account Manager, Major Travel Multi-national (in an email to his HR/L&D business partner)

you’re very good, you’re like George Costanza!
you don’t repeat yourself like other presenters do
you don’t dumb it down
you should be an actor!
it was fun but it wasn’t boring like other presenters
you worked from where we were
Participant feedback All-staff Strategic Planning day, Community Housing Organisation

Just wanted to let you know [your techniques] worked wonderfully in getting my son out of bed this morning. So now you can say, not only is it good in presentations and dealing with colleagues, but it works with preschoolers too
Nurse Educator, Fertility Clinic (and proud mother of a difficult pre-schooler)

Cindy is an excellent resource to stimulate conversations, keep us on track and plan
 Michelle Perrin Head of Department - Music, Art & Child Life Therapy | John Hunter Children's Hospital
