"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.

Simply a brilliant and inspirational trainer – I can honestly say after 25 years in marketing and working with start ups to big corporate brands there are only a handful of trainers I could recommend and Simon Hares gets it and is in my top 5! Thank you. I wish you were with us full time!!
Jules Budniak Head of Marketing Yachting Pages Media Group
Simon in a wonderful training and has you at ease from the word go. The most knowledgeable and most engaging trainer you will ever meet. His people skills, his stories and his charisma put him top of the class for all your training needs! Couldn't recommend him enough.
Adam Howe Admin and Clerical Recruitment & Placements Consultant at NHS Professionals
I have just completed a 2 day training course with Simon which has been outstanding. Simon's wealth of knowledge and exceptional delivery kept me engaged throughout. What a refreshing experience, I feel like the reset button has been pressed! The day after training I had a meeting with a prospect, it was the perfect opportunity to use some of the techniques, skills and behaviors I had learnt during training. I could not believe how effective they are! The skills you have given me an invaluable, today's experience reminded me why I am in sales and for that I have you to thank. To anyone thinking about using Simon, do it.
James Whatmore Account Development Manager
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.

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon’s training opened our eyes to the techniques and skills that can be adopted to strengthen the way we deliver our offering. It was a brilliant training. Simon kept the team engaged for the whole day and so much of what was delivered was able to be put into action immediately. For the team at Hobsons Choice, this is very much only the start of our education in honing our sales skills, but we are confident that we have found the right trainer for us.
Richard Carter Owner, Hobsons Choice
Simon has been working with the sales team at ComputerWorld over the past several months and it's been a truly enriching experience. With the plethora of "trainers" just regurgitating the same old spiel it's refreshing to have someone come in and not only teach you new techniques but to also teach in new and innovative ways. Three days worth of training and not a PowerPoint in sight! Simon is a natural born Salesman but more than that he's an expert teacher who clearly has passion for what he does and that really shines through. If you're considering using Simon's services you won't be disappointed!
Max Garrett Security Solutions Specialist at Computerworld Group
It was a genuine pleasure to receive sales training from Simon recently. I am only one session of 3 through the training but I have already been able to take great value from the session. Simon is able to tailor not just the course but his approach to the session to match each individuals needs. I particularly enjoyed how interactive and open the session was. No power-point, no repetitive role play, just relevant examples and genuinely helpful techniques backed up with use cases. Simon was also particularly attentive to questions or issues raised within the training group and dealt with them very clearly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone regardless of there position within Sales or Customer Service.
Matthew Scholes Internal Account Manager at ComputerWorld
I can't say enough about how valuable, exciting, and enjoyable my first SalesTrainer7 course was with Simon. After my 3-day course, I walked away a more confident and motivated sales professional. Simon is highly knowledgeable, open-minded, and collaborative. I now have more resources and skills than I've ever had before in my profession. If you are looking to provide valuable solutions for your clients, and grow your business... introduce yourself to Simon.

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon offered both professional and personal help at a time I needed it to progress.
Will Guyatt Communications Manager. Instagram
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.
Emma Park Campaign Executive / Freelance Artist / WIGJ Ambassador
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.
Charlie Lister Future Trainee Solicitor. Womble Bond Dickinson LLP
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.

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Couldn’t have been presented better. Simon is extremely inspiring. Best training I have EVER had.
Tom Holden Asst Store Manager. Hargroves Cycles
I've just completed the Wainwright Management Academy delivered by Simon Hares of Serial Trainer 7. Without doubt the most informative, engaging and enjoyable training I have received to date. Work based training can often be seen as getting in the way of the 'day job' but this was a privilege to be part of. It delivered so much in such a dynamic and enthusiastic manner it was impossible to be anything other than stimulated by it. The content was excellently tailored to our needs, and challenging which added to the experience. I believe both the course content and Simons approach has helped galvanised the team and given us the knowledge and tools to help take the business to another level. A competitive edge has definitely been gained. The only disappointment is after 9 months the training has come to an end. Would I recommend this training........ Absolutely!
Kevin Saunders Business Improvement Manager
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 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.
