"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

SerialTrainer7 has both inspired and encouraged our team to look after each other and to look for those early signs which sometimes show themselves when people are perhaps overcommitted or just need a little help. The training was informative and great fun and I am sure was also one of the best team building exercises we have ever done.  

Dean Hayward Sales & Marketing Manager. NMBS Limited

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

From our last negotiating skills workshop – one of our team said ‘it was great training, the best I’ve ever attended’ honestly in 25 years of marketing Simon Hares really ‘gets people and the needs of a business to develop their people’. Give him a call and make a real change in your business for short medium and long term growth!

Simon demonstrated a high level of expertise. His training was clear and immediately actionable and he was sensitive to all my teams’ needs. In addition, his style was open and inviting to questions and he willingly gave his time to responding to questions thoroughly. He provided a fun and engaging learning environment. Simon is extremely enthusiastic about his work which is infectious. He is courteous and considerate and I would certainly recommend him for any future training.

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.

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

He is the kind of person you miss when he’s not there, and the man you want when the demands of the job seem insurmountable, simply because he can lead a team while making you think you’re doing the leading yourself

Shaun Weston Managing Editor Digital. FoodBev Media Ltd.

Highly Recommended!! Having just completed the Serial7 Management Academy, I wanted to say Simon is almost certainly the best trainer I have encountered. He was insightful, engaging and knowledgeable, but importantly, also very adaptable, tailoring his training to the needs of the pupils in front of him. He brought an energy to the training that made, with what could have been very dull subject matter, the time simply fly by. Never afraid of probing questions on the topic at hand and always willing to hear other’s points of view. It was very telling at the end of the sessions, that there was not one bad word for Simon! Altogether, Simon and Serial7 should be on any organisations contact list for training needs. Hope to have the pleasure of Simon’s coaching/mentoring/training again in the not too distant future.

Robin Snow Assistant Manager at John Wainwright & Co Ltd

I have recently completed the seven-part "Wainwright Management Academy" training with Simon, and feel compelled to say what a fantastic trainer Simon is! Having been on very many training courses over very many years, I found Simon's approach to be informative, entertaining, tailored and compelling. And he's a thoroughly nice bloke too!

Steve Urch Senior Estimator at Aggregate Industries UK

A dedicated individual who is focussed, driven and excels in the environment he works in. His attention to detail and commitment are just part of the make up that make him an exemplary operator.
