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

The biggest benefit of the 2 days was that we developed a greater sense of collaboration amongst the leadership team

Team Leader, Analytics and Reporting team, Major Telco

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.

Associate Technical Architect, Multi-National Software Company

patient, entertaining & clearly very knowledgeable

IT Director, US Multi-national Online Travel Company

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!

Sharon Valks, Data Coordinator Information and Support, Cancer Programs Division, Cancer Council NSW

What a valuable session that was for me. I felt you navigated the awkwardness of bringing a new team together beautifully and never once did I feel that I was uncomfortably “put on the spot” (as sometimes happens in these things!). Thank you for weaving some awesome magic to build our team foundations and help us position ourselves for the future.

Implementation Lead, Change Transformation, Analytics and Reporting, Major Telco

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

Account Manager, Major Travel Multi-National

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

Account Manager, Major Travel Multi-national

Very applicable content, with thought-provoking and immediately implementable tools and practices. Excellent trainer with great experience, engaging and able to convey the messages clearly and convincingly.

Head of Training, Luxury Retailer

overwhelming feedback that it was very useful & they all learnt something new

APAC Manager of his team, Major Travel Multi-national

Great – simple actions that really work!

Manager, Community Housing Company

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

Really enjoyed the day – I especially enjoyed that we were able to move around and that you kept us on a tight timeframe and you were in control all day.
