"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’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.

Ingrid Maher Roberts Human Resources Manager, Dialect Inc

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!

I have just completing SerialTrainer7 Customer Services and Communications Academy course and had the pleasure to meet Simon. I was very impressed with Simon's knowledge, very friendly approach, supportive, excellent coaching and a good sense of humour 😁 Simon definitely helped upgrading Customer Services and Communication skills by covering a vast amount of information needed to improve. I would throughly recommend Simon and looking forward to see him again soon!

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

Had an incredible time with Simon for a 3 day sales training. I am super grateful to have learned from someone with the experience that Simon has this early in my career. Feel much more confident in my ability to work with clients to be the best resource to them. Many Thanks!

Kevin Vlad Business Development Executive, The Medicine Maker

I have known Simon for over 20 years, and consider myself fortunate to have been trained, and most recently coached by him. His sales training is second to none - with the skills and knowledge I gained in those early days still being just as relevant and applicable today. His love and passion for gaming (especially PlayStation!!!) means Simon is able to provide contextually relevant training and advice, which I've found especially beneficial in my current role as Commercial Director for Network N.

Andrew Church Commercial Director at Publisher Collective

Each lesson in Simon's Serial Training was purposeful, unique and engaging. He has a true skill in providing personalized insight and process to everyday situations. At the end of the three day session, I felt that Simon was apart of our team sitting at the end of the table. I couldn't have higher praise for Simon and would implore anyone considering for Sales Training, Coaching and Development to contact him first.

Daniel Crowe Business Development at The Pathologist

An absolute pleasure to have three days of training sessions with Simon. The knowledge that I have gained will no doubt be career changing. He has opened up a whole new outlook on sales that I have not been exposed to previously. A big thanks from me Simon!

Simon is a fantastic trainer. He sees everyone in his sessions as individuals, understanding them quickly and offers advice and tailors his teaching style depending on the people. I and my team have really benefited from his training as he provides you skills and strategies that help improve yourself in a personal and professional way. I would absolutely recommend Simon and his training to anyone.

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

I feel very fortunate to have gone through his management training as I felt that it helped me to re-evaluate my management skills and see where improvements need to be made.

Ying Li Accounting 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.

Linda Johnson Learning and Development Business Partner at Chase de Vere

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.
