"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.

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

We spent a lot of time considering the training requirements and methods of delivery for presentation and sales training for the team at ComputerWorld. Simon came highly recommended to me from a couple of mutual connection and I was also lucky enough to see Simon present at a business networking event, this was the final confirmation I needed that Simon was the right person to deliver the training for us. Simon has so far delivered presentation skills and sales training for the team at CW, the feedback across the team has been fantastic, not only did Simon teach the syllabus he brought energy to the training that was contagious not only to those on the course but to others in the business (How many people can turn presentation skills training into an energised conversation after work among colleagues!). Simon teaches from experience and the methods he still uses today, which was really important to us. I would highly recommend Simon for sales and professional development training, we are looking forward to undertaking further sales and professional development training with Simon in 2019.

Barry Coombs Director of Operations at ComputerWorld

Simon organised and ran one of the first sales management courses I ever attended and much of what I learnt by way of coaching and managing a sales team then, I still use today.

David Fieldhouse Digital Sales Manager. Archant

What can I say about Simon that has not already been said! I had the pleasure of meeting Simon when my previous employer arranged for the team to undertake the SerialTrainer7 academy. Walking in to the meeting room on the first day expecting 2 days of death by PowerPoint and role-play, however this couldn't have been further form the truth, Simon put the team at ease within the first 5 minutes and what followed was 2 days of fantastic training, with the whole team completely engaged. Without a doubt some of the most valuable training I have undertaken in my 20 year sales career. I thoroughly recommend Simon to any organisation looking to take their sales team to the next level.

John Jeynes Strategic Account Development Manager, MHR

Simon’s training technique and his personality are an inspiration to me. He gets his message across very efficiently and tailors his approach to each individual. He realises the importance of how everyone is different and his advice and training is always relevant and specific. I enjoy my training sessions with Simon very much and always come away with a positive feeling and excitment of putting his advice into action. Simon has a way of making you feel respected and valued and I am grateful for all the knowledge he has passed onto me. I truly believe his intentions are to make me better at my work but also as a person. I am very happy to recommend his training to anyone wanting no nonsense training and advice in sales.

Laura Presley Account Manager. Yachting Pages Media Group

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

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!

Lauren Harrison Assistant Category Manager at NMBS (National Merchant Buying Society)

Simon helped me develop my career, and has supported me the whole way. Simon saw my potential and pushed me in the right direction.

Polly Beauchamp Rights Manager. IP & Commissioning. Future

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 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

Just a quick note to say that I thoroughly recommend Serial Trainer 7. Simon's courses are clear and informative and arm you with useful tools. I attended Simon's 'Management Academy' and what is most impressive about it is how each module links to and reinforces the others. What makes the training particularly good is the man himself, Simon is charismatic, genuine and supportive. It's worth mentioning that the course is fun, whether via video chat or in person.

Jason Hockridge Head of Delivery, Network-N Ltd

Simon's Management Academy training has not only taught me a lot about the world of management, it's taught me a lot about myself. His engaging sessions, which mix schools of thought with well-thought-out exercises and debates, make learning about seemingly mundane topics a breeze. His support has left me feeling equipped for the big wide world of management, something I cannot thank him enough for.

Jessica Wells Editor, The Loadout

If you want to be a better Manager/Leader or want to improve your overall business skills in general, don’t waste another moment. Simon is the best trainer that I have worked with.

Michael Grinde Senior Manager. FutureUS

Inspiring is what I would call Simon and his leadership development sessions. Supporting our leaders with a half day well-being focused, resilience leadership course has been superb. I would highly recommend Simon, his extensive knowledge and expertise allowed for interactive and highly engaging sessions which exceeded expectations. He listened to what we wanted, enhanced what we where looking for and excelled in the delivery of this. The feedback has been-first class…. Excellent, best session ever attended, great course and trainer are just some of the comments we have received. Thank you Simon, we are looking forward to the next sessions in the coming weeks.
