"I really enjoyed the whole course. It was straightforward, easy to follow, great pace and Dave really worked well in ensuring the group got to mix. This was an inspirational course which gave you the skills, knowledge and competency to develop your coaching skills. I would highly recommend it as it is challenging and nurturing at the same time. You leave feeling inspired to achieve great things, and you gain clarity over some of your own issues."

Training Consultant - TPS

"Phil did everything in a very professional and focused manner, without losing sight of the overall aims or having 'fun'. When I moved to Airbus UK and subsequently European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS), I had no hesitation in recommending Phil and the team to deliver the required training and team events.

Without doubt Phil and his team are excellent providers of training, to suit even bespoke requirements, and i would not hesitate in recommending the team to any business in the future."
