"Business goes where it is needed and stays where it is welcome." - Anon
This is a special part of my site, somewhat self indulgent, and something I am very appreciative of; however when people generously take the time to create a testimonial, I want to share them so that you can see for yourself what people have said about me and how useful they have found my training. Indulge this humble training consultant sharing some of these with you.
My Wonderful Clients I've Trained & Coached
General Advocacy for SerialTrainer7
I rarely come across trainers who stand out like Simon and It’s a genuine pleasure as it has helped me perform better and see immediate results here at NHS Professionals. Simon has delivered some memorable training by making it fully interactive and engaging throughout. Simons ability to train from experiences and use methods/techniques applied today, really makes his training textbook! An exceptional trainer!! Highly recommended and a pleasure to be around.
Graeme Nash Talent Brand Acquisition Manager at NHS Professionals
Simon has ninja-like training skills. He was among the most professional and dedicated people I worked with. He is one of the good guys.
Simon Tapscott Founder/MD. Do Good Things
It is extremely rare to meet someone who has a natural ability to help people out professionally and personally, Simon does both effortlessly and with grace. I have had the pleasure of being involved with group sessions and 1-2-1’s with Simon and have left the training feeling refreshed, informed and better about the position I am in within my career. The sessions are fun and informative and have a energy about them that makes you want to learn and impress your peers. I would highly recommend Simon to anyone from a small company to a global organisation.
Lauren Lidford Account Manager. Factory Media
Simon leads his training sessions with enthusiasm and heart. He opened my eyes to sales strategies that seem so simple but are so often missed. We completed three sessions via Skype. I keep some of the materials he sent me through our course taped at my desk, as they include great daily reminders on questioning, closing techniques, defining value and beyond!

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
I started at Future as part of the graduate scheme with no idea what to expect and very little sales training. I’m now approaching two years with the company and not a day goes by without using some element of the training I received from Simon.
Chris Furness Sales Executive. Future
We asked Simon to come and deliver one of his sales workshop to the high growth tech startups in the Accelerator Academy… Upon delivery it was clear Simon had nailed it…we would have no hesitation inviting Simon back to share his expertise.
Ian Merricks Managing Partner. White Horse Capital
Quirky, passionate knowledgeable and exciting are a few words that spring to mind when i think of Simon and his training sessions. The way Simon delivers his sessions are a far cry from the usual 'Cheesy' sales training courses. Regardless of the size of the class Simon takes time to get to know YOU as an individual and find out how you learn. Simon's mix of professionalism and humor is a recipe for a great learning environment. I cannot wait to hammer the phones today and put some of Simon's techniques in to practice. I would highly recommend Simon for 1-2-1 or group training. GET YOURSELF BOOKED IN!

Passionate about training staff, Simon enthusiastically delivers training to ensure it not only meets the needs the staff but exceeds the companies expectations in quality. Training does not stop in the classroom for Simon, he provides support and advice to those who train with him and he is honest, perceptive and compassionate. A real pleasure to have been trained by him and to see someone love their job as much as he clearly does.

It is not an exaggeration to say that if it weren’t for the training, support and guidance I received from Simon that I would not be in the position in work that I currently am.
Tony Marshall Operations Manager. Hewitson Walker
He challenges me to take responsibility for my personal performance and always tailors training to individual circumstances. I apply his advice and always experience direct results, he is the most effective trainer and coach I have ever encountered.

He helped me challenge myself to become the strong leader I needed to be. I was able to secure training from him that equipped my team and myself to handle the challenges and pressures being faced. Simon helped us develop as individuals to allow us to realise our full potential and deliver the business goals.
Ron Kelly Head of Media Sales. Higgs International Publishing Ltd & Sector Head Publishing for DHL Global Forwarding
Simon has carried out various training for my management team over recent years and he has been fantastic. Every time Simon conducts his training, my staff leave enthused, excited and eager to implement and put into practice everything they have learned. This is not only down to the high quality training aides but is also down to the instructor, Simon, himself. Simon's natural flair and passion is simply infectious. He has such a vast knowledge on all management subjects and the way he delivers it, really resonates with all of my staff. Simon's greatest skill though is understanding people and how we are all different. He is very quick to read and understand people, how they work and their strengths and weaknesses and automatically tailors his approach to ensure they gain the most from his sessions. A really exception trainer.
George Robert Knott Operations Manager at Acado
Simon was recommended to us just under 12 months ago when we asked him to run a Selling Skills Workshop for our Sales team. Simon is enthusiastic, engaging and a complete expert in his field and the training was some of the most successful we have delivered. Since then I have come to view Simon as an extension to our HR function providing training ranging from Customer Services and Resilience through to Communications Skills and our next exciting project of creating a management academy for our first line managers. Without Simon I simply wouldn’t have been able to deliver this calibre of training to our teams within my budget. I trust in his delivery entirely and always find we are on the same page when we discuss the outputs required from training. He has fantastic insight through his work with so many organisations worldwide and uses a great blend of the fundamentals of any given subject with the latest thinking and application in today’s forever changing workplace. Simon is a pleasure to work with and I’m thrilled to call him part of the Green Gourmet team.
