"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
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
We worked with Simon to roll out a large scale digital learning initiative. He designs and employes comprehensive processes that drive amazing results. He has a real grasp of what needs to be done to make something a success.
Jonny Towsnend Operations Director. Circus Street
Simon trained our retail team at Dickies Europe with a variety of structured and well planned courses designed with our specific inter company operations in mind. By far the best training in retail I have experienced (I have 20yrs retail experience). Simon put me at ease from the beginning and had me enjoying the training sessions from start to finish with the content actually sinking in!! His knowledge and experience regarding all the subjects he covered filled you with the confidence that, what was being taught came from a person who had tried and succeeded at them. I can’t recommend Simon enough and believe whatever your business/ goals, he can help with outstanding training & support.
Wayne Rawlins Store Manager at Dickies
Simon is quite honestly the only person whom I would recommend for any training course. He is unique & refreshing in his approach, & as such obtains maximum interaction from all who attend. Valuable learning for us all, insightful, fun, approachable, genius methods, which captivate the doubters amongst us of which I was one. Not any longer, with Simon training you or your team you can only benefit. Thank you Simon, regards Carol.

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
I have just had the privilege of attending Simon's sales training course, and it has left me feeling completely recharged and focused. His knowledge, enthusiasm and insight has left me compelled to share my opinions of Simon as a trainer and as a person. My experience of sales training in the past has been less than positive, putting it mildly, and as such I will be honest that I was not entirely confident that this would be any different. I could not have been more wrong. From the moment Simon began the course I felt compelled to listen to every word. Simon immediately captured my attention and his knowledge and insight was hugely impressive. He really knows what he is talking about, but more than that he continually put the teachings and methods into context. So many can talk-the-talk, but very few leave you convinced that they had been there, done it, and got the T Shirt time and time again. That is what really stuck with me in the days after the training, Simon really knows your challenges in sales as he has clearly lived and breathed it. I have learnt a huge amount in my time with Simon, and am already putting into practice what I have learnt from the training. Most of all I feel I have gained in confidence, and this is from just two days spent with Simon! As a person, he is engaging, motivational, empathetic and driven - with a wicked sense of humour that I could relate to! My company has already booked follow up training with him, such was the success of the two days, and I look forward to working with Simon again. Highly, highly recommended!
Stewart Dyer National Sales Executive at Green Gourmet Ltd
Before the sales training I had in my head that he would be the same as all other training. (Someone telling you how to sell, use of cameras and uncomfortable pressure which stops sales people from learning) Simon, from the start wanted to know about the sales team, what makes us tick, what we need to be able to succeed rather than what the company wants or thinks we need. His understanding of all processes in the sales funnel was amazing. This man is brilliant, and every business wanting to make more money should implement SerialTrainer7 to do so! Thank you Simon
David White Sales Manager. Intelligent Optimisations.
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!
Bradley Lye Sales and Business Development at MediaClash
I had the privilege to attend an intense 3-day sales training with Simon which was just outstanding. The sessions he runs are very interactive, full of practice, role plays and case studies which help replicate the theory into the daily routine and truly applying the learnings. We covered all aspects of the sales process, buyers type, buyers and negotiation tactics and even presentation skills. Furthermore, his service is not limited to the actual training but also extended by offering advice and meetings upon request even afterwards, this is brilliant. Last but not least, everyone left with a smile because Simon's amazing sense of humour. The best training I have ever had!

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon is a good listener and a great motivator, nothing is too much trouble.
Kate Stothard Asst Manager. Future PhotoStudio
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
Simon is inspiring and motivating. He makes training fun and interesting whilst ensuring you take away skills which you can use both in and out of work. What also sets him apart is the support and follow up after the course to ensure you’re continual personal development. Highly recommend.
I’ve had the pleasure of attending 5 of Simon’s courses this year; Resilience, Customer Service, Presenting Magically, Closing Skills and Time Management & Personal Effectiveness. Each 1 has been beneficial to me in both my job role and my personal life. Simon is a brilliant trainer, especially because he makes everyone feel included and shows that he values their opinions. The courses are always great fun and I really appreciate the skills he has taught me. I look forward to many more training classes with Simon in 2019!

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon’s Management and Leadership masterclass was thoroughly engaging and his style was inspirational. The team left highly motivated and I would recommend this course to those who would like to develop their managerial skills. I look forward to seeing you on your next course.
Usman Younus Account Manager at Multisol Ltd
Thoroughly recommend Simon and the Serial Trainer 'management essentials' course. Simon is clearly an experienced leader with the ability to professionally deliver detailed theory and real life examples.
Martin Covill Director of Business at TLC Marketing
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
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.
