"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

Simon is a fantastic trainer with a real passion for supporting and developing talent. Ive attended many of his sessions over the years and always found them fun, engaging and extremely worthwhile. I’d recommend Simon for any business wanting to invest in sales people, you’ll be in safe hands…

Rob Last Commercial Director at Supply Clouds

Simon is a fantastic trainer. His enthusiasm, subject knowledge and passion for training has inspired our delegates and create a supportive yet challenging environment for our course. Feedback from delegates has been sensational. They especially welcomed the personal mentoring that he provides individually to delegates between events and this really sets him apart from other trainers, across all four of the soft skills courses we ran this year. We will be working with Simon again in future.

David Wright Director General at United Kingdom Lubricants Association (UKLA) Ltd

Simon is one of kindest, considerate and courteous people I have met, blessed with an abundance of emotional intelligence.

Phil Churchill Marketing Consultant, Coach & Trainer. Churchill Associates

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.

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

Simon’s program was one of the most professional and valuable to date. The training is not only valuable, it is proven to work and has helped me close more sales.

Tad Perez Advertising Manager. Future US

Refreshing and honest training - equipping our teams to be confident in our Sales activities and our Customer Success approach. Thank you Simon!

Katie Fallows Head of Customer Success at CIPHR

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

Having recently completed my first set of training sessions with Simon across the last few months, I can say with hand on heart that it has not only enriched my sales techniques but given me unparalleled confidence in my new position at MediaClash. Simon has given the team a broad understanding of sales; from negotiation to presentation skills. Although admittedly quite a daunting prospect having to put these skills into practice, they have naturally been filtering through into my every day work. Simon has an approach to presentation like no other; there are no tedious powerpoint presentations, his seminars/workshops are interactive and compelling. So much so that I have definitely been exhausted by the end of each day! Thank you for your valuable help at the initial stages of my career in media sales for Bath Life magazine. I look forward to working with you again in near future.

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

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.

Robin Sheppard

My sessions with Simon have been fantastic. I love how the training is not at all robotic or full of uncomfortable role play sessions. Everything we went through was relevant to current times and felt very up to date. Simon is extremely approachable and always reminding you that he is happy to help at anytime, so the training doesn't stop at the end of the session. Thanks Simon, looking forward to our session early next year!

John Billinghurst Brand Sales Executive, Immediate Media Co

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.

Sean Atkins Digital Director. Future Plus

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

I don't think I'm alone in saying that when you see the words 'management training session' suddenly blocking out three hours of your day, you can't help but get THAT sinking feeling. And yet, from the moment we loaded up our Zoom call of five managers, Simon was immediately engaging, charismatic and genuinely inspirational. His training style had us constantly involved, discussing concepts and our own perspectives, and he cultivated an honest environment where we felt safe to share our thoughts. After only a few hours we were hungry for further reading, and the topics discussed had an immediate impact on my interactions with the team. Our follow up one-to-one call after the session was invaluable, and I feel significantly better placed to deal with the management challenges of our new working situation.

Louise Blain Writer, producer & presenter, Dialect Inc

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

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's training has been fundamental in helping me to step up my skills as an employee, a colleague, and a manager. His straightforward, no-nonsense approach will have you quickly seeing every day work situations in a new light, as well as your role in your business and team. I've learned how to amplify not only my own strengths, but those of my teammates, too. Expect sage advice, expect to be faced with challenges, and expect to (safely) step outside your comfort zone, with great reward. I'd recommend Simon and SerialTrainer7 in a heartbeat.
