"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.

A day with Simon is a treat and a pleasure. In only a day, Simon’s Presentation Skills training carefully developed and nurtured an atmosphere where the whole team were confident presenting to an audience without notes or props. I would highly recommend Simon for his depth of knowledge and development skills but more importantly for his fun and engaging style of training.

Simon’s reputation has always been that of being an outstanding trainer who really has a long-term impact on those he delivers training to. This obviously was always going to be more challenging due to Covid-19 restrictions and not being able to meet teams face to face. Simon from the start realised that he would not be able to deliver a training course to the team in the same way via Zoom. He understood that you can’t keep a team of people engaged for 7 hours via Zoom. It just would not have the same impact as face the face training. He therefore completely adapted his approach using shorter group sessions and discussions and also doing longer one to one follow up meetings. The team loved it! They were completely engaged and found his approach both warm and engaging. I could not recommend Simon highly enough. You definitely do not need to wait to have training return to being all in the same room, Simon’s skill and ability to adapt to the changing work environment is truly inspirational.

I have to say that Simon is the most engaging, stimulating and thought-provoking trainer I have ever worked with! He is an exceptional trainer with extensive knowledge across a broad range of areas. I have now attended a number of courses run by Simon and all (without fail!) have provided me with sound advice, new processes and tips to take away to apply in my day-to-day working life. Simon’s style of delivering training is superb, and his ability to draw delegates out of their comfort zones and get them to actively participate is second to none. His courses are stimulating and so much fun whilst delivering real solutions to help delegates meet their objectives. And best of all …. Not a single PowerPoint slide in sight!

I just completed 2 days of training with Simon and found it so refreshing. I walked away feeling that I am able to use everything I've learned in my current role. I found all the information we covered was useful and relevant. I enjoyed every minute and probably the most fun training I've had. Really looking forward to the future sessions we have.

Simon is an inspiring and talented training specialist. Each course of his I've attended has been impeccably organised and presented, his knowledge has been exhaustive and his enthusiasm infectious. I would have no hesitation in recommending him professionally, and I've been grateful on several occasions for his personal advice and career guidance.

Having known and worked with Simon for many years, I was very pleased to have him on board as our trainer. Simon’s courses are brilliant and he spends time in tailoring them to your business needs and to attendees. He takes the time to get to know everyone, observe attendees, evaluate them and nourish them in the most effective way. This isn’t just for business gain, but he genuinely cares about an individual’s progress, both professionally and personally. His additional ongoing support of is valuable and shows the belief he has in individuals and where he can make a difference.

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon came in for Sales training a few weeks back and all I can say is what an experience! The energy, insight knowledge and approach that Simon has really energised our team as well as allowing us to approach our working day with vigour and with many more tools at our disposal. Although it was a week long course, it felt like it was over in flash because of the way that Simon interacted with us. The content was great and also Simon's reactions to suggestions and behaviour is conducive to a very open learning atmosphere where everyone's opinion is valued. I really enjoyed myself, heavily recommend working with Simon and look forward to seeing him in the future.

Andy Baker MediaClash
I feel very fortunate to have gone through his management training as I felt that it helped me to re-evaluate my management skills and see where improvements need to be made.
Ying Li Accounting Manager. FutureUS
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.
