"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.

General Advocacy for SerialTrainer7
Simon is unlike any trainer I have ever worked with - this is what makes him so unique and the sessions so enjoyable. He is extremely knowledgeable, obviously passionate and knows how to bring out the best in people. He offers techniques which get results and explains the methods behind them thoroughly. I find him captivating and he is very approachable, meaning I've never felt silly or awkward asking any questions. With a fantastic sense of humour, I feel like undertaking any training sessions with individuals other than Simon would pale in comparison. Would highly recommend.
Natalie Brereton Sales Executive at Crumbs Magazine
In a word, Outstanding. Simon uses the traditional management techniques as a core but more importantly he has adapted these methods to work in the modern business environment as so much has changed in how we work and manage people. This makes his course more relevant and more useful than other trainers that use outdated information and practices. He delivers his training in a friendly yet authorative and confident manner with clever use of practical exercises to reinforce the methodologies being used. I now feel confident in any business situation knowing I have a robust and adaptive toolkit to hand which I have used several times already, I have also noticed this training has helped in many personal situations, being able to analyse and deal with issues with confidence. This is not some 'dry' training that enables a business to say they invest in their staff, this training is for businesses that want their employees to reach their full potential with full support all the way.
Peter Meech Technical Director at Network N Ltd
SerialTrainer7 has both inspired and encouraged our team to look after each other and to look for those early signs which sometimes show themselves when people are perhaps overcommitted or just need a little help. The training was informative and great fun and I am sure was also one of the best team building exercises we have ever done.
Dean Hayward Sales & Marketing Manager. NMBS Limited

Give him a call and make a real change in your business for short medium and long term growth!

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Last week Simon came into the business to give our team sales training. His style is engaging and interactive rather than the standard power-point boredom which I felt helped us all take that extra value each day from his in-depth coaching on the sales process, negotiation tactics, buying personas and even human/buyer actions and characteristics. I would highly recommend Simon for both his ability to help everyone, his charisma and the extensive range of knowledge. Simon's training has literally changed my daily behaviours and attitudes in both the professional environment desired and in my own life.
James Cullen Senior Business Development Manager. Webgains
Simon’s services are not just a luxury there are a necessity, if you want to better yourself and improves your skills as a sales professional, I wholeheartedly recommend Simon without hesitation.
Jen Doerger Sr Sales Manager. FutureUS
Energetic, enthusiastic and authoritative. Simon helped to guide our whole team through three days of valuable sales training. Throughout the three days it was delivered with great energy, a true enthusiasm for sales and above all with authority. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and found it incredibly valuable to my development. Thank you Simon!
Paul Longley Business Development Executive at The Ophthalmologist
After a long search finding the right training program for our Benelux sales team, we found a partner in Simon who really makes a difference to our business. Different levels throughout our organisation (from operational sales to sales management) have benefited from a rich and down-to-earth content presented in very enthusiastic and interactive training sessions. Combining a general program with individual coaching and focus on specific area’s resulted in a very intense and attractive program for all.

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
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.
Clair Atkins Account Director. Future Plus
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
Each lesson in Simon's Serial Training was purposeful, unique and engaging. He has a true skill in providing personalized insight and process to everyday situations. At the end of the three day session, I felt that Simon was apart of our team sitting at the end of the table. I couldn't have higher praise for Simon and would implore anyone considering for Sales Training, Coaching and Development to contact him first.
Daniel Crowe Business Development at The Pathologist
Simon is ridiculously good. There, I said it. Be it training, coaching, strategic or professional advice-his enthusiasm to solve any problem and the world a better place is completely contagious. Work with him once and you’ll be enthusing as much as I am.

I have recently completed the seven-part "Wainwright Management Academy" training with Simon, and feel compelled to say what a fantastic trainer Simon is! Having been on very many training courses over very many years, I found Simon's approach to be informative, entertaining, tailored and compelling. And he's a thoroughly nice bloke too!
Steve Urch Senior Estimator at Aggregate Industries UK
I have just attended Simon’s Management and Leadership masterclass organised by the UKLA and really enjoyed it. It was a fun, engaging and current one-day course. Would recommend it to any new managers. I will now consider Simon’s other courses for my team and myself too. Thanks!
Sebastien Mallet Global Sales and Marketing Manager, Ironsides Lubricants
Back in the office this morning after a full days training on Simon's Management and Leadership Masterclass. If you're looking for only one training session this year, you must consider Serial Trainer 7. An engaging day, which was frankly over far too quickly. Simon's a great communicator, with an effervescent mix of knowledge, humour, relevance, practical experiences and a little bit of sarcasm thrown in to keep you on your toes. I'll be using his services throughout the year. Plenty for me to think about after just one day of his time.
