"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.

General Advocacy for SerialTrainer7

Simon brings clarity, inventiveness and precision born out of expert knowledge. He maintains a light touch but has relentless focus on the particular tasks at hand. Those he trains and supports are more effective for it.

After attending Simons training course I left with a new set of skills and knowledge and highly motivated to implement what I had learnt. He has a great deal of knowledge and his professionalism was plain to see. Thank you Simon.

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.

Simon came and ran a presentation skills training to my team at Just Eat Takeaway, and I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience. Everyone in the team enjoyed it and got a lot of value out of the day which we will be using in our day to day jobs. The session was structured, informative and pushed us out of our comfort zones but his delivery of the session was inclusive and allowed us to bond as a team and with him in the process. I could not recommend Simon and his company more, I hope we get to join another training session of yours soon!

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

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.

It is refreshing to meet people like Simon during your career and an absolute privilege to be trained by them! Having just completed three days of sales training with Simon i can honestly say that as an experienced sales professional I have left feeling refreshed and focused. We worked through many new techniques which will undoubtedly result in an increase in both sales for myself and more importantly for my clients. Simon delivers his training in a way that keeps you engaged and invested in your learning. Priceless! Thank you Simon and I look forward to being taking part in future courses.

Helen Johnson Business Development Manager for The Medicine Maker

Simon delivered sales training to the Novai team ahead of our venture to a large industry conference, Simon was superb, setting us up correctly for what to expect, how to work the conference and schedule meetings to pitch our brand. Simon is an engaging and exciting character full of expertise and encouragement. I would recommend the Sales Trainer 7 courses to develop your team's knowledge, confidence and skills.

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

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 offered both professional and personal help at a time I needed it to progress.

Will Guyatt Communications Manager. Instagram

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

Passionate about training staff, Simon enthusiastically delivers training to ensure it not only meets the needs the staff but exceeds the companies expectations in quality. Training does not stop in the classroom for Simon, he provides support and advice to those who train with him and he is honest, perceptive and compassionate. A real pleasure to have been trained by him and to see someone love their job as much as he clearly does.

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

Cannot recommend Simon enough. After just completing an intensive course remotely on Management and Leadership, I have come away with more in-depth knowledge on areas I had touched on in my CIMA studies as well as areas I was not familiar with. Although some areas were out of my comfort zone, there was no judgement and the feeling of being part of close group was something not encountered on a training course before. I love the way Simon is so honest and open with us. It allows you to be comfortable sharing your thoughts and opinions to help work through issues and develop further.

Sharon Addenbrooke Finance Manager, Network N

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

Thoroughly recommend Simon and the Serial Trainer 'management essentials' course. Simon is clearly an experienced leader with the ability to professionally deliver detailed theory and real life examples.

Martin Covill Director of Business at TLC Marketing

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.
