Customer testimonial

Mel really helped provide insight and offered points of difference that can help me in a professional setting. I enjoyed learning more about the ways body language and tone can have an impact. The eye accessing cues were also really interesting.

W.F , Tiny Rebel

My favourite part of the course was the very engaging trainers.

Kyle Loughrin , AES Global Ltd

Great courses, trainers had actual expertise from the field the field they were teaching in rather than just teaching from a text book.

Adrian Welch Head of Sales, Coastal Group

Alison was very knowledgeable and engaging. I liked the analysis of our own leadership style and thinking about how to improve our effectiveness score.

V.K , Equals Money

I think the day was very well structured and planned. I felt like the time flew by!
I enjoyed all of it and find it very interesting. The perception cycle was good, doing the DISC Analysis and learning about the Ego States was also informative.
