"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

I have to say that Simon is the most engaging, stimulating and thought-provoking trainer I have ever worked with! He is an exceptional trainer with extensive knowledge across a broad range of areas. I have now attended a number of courses run by Simon and all (without fail!) have provided me with sound advice, new processes and tips to take away to apply in my day-to-day working life. Simon’s style of delivering training is superb, and his ability to draw delegates out of their comfort zones and get them to actively participate is second to none. His courses are stimulating and so much fun whilst delivering real solutions to help delegates meet their objectives. And best of all …. Not a single PowerPoint slide in sight!

Suzanne Millward Business Development Manager at National Merchant Buying Society

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.

Bill Austin Head of Direct Services, Trowbridge Town Council

Simon is quite honestly the only person whom I would recommend for any training course. He is unique & refreshing in his approach, & as such obtains maximum interaction from all who attend. Valuable learning for us all, insightful, fun, approachable, genius methods, which captivate the doubters amongst us of which I was one. Not any longer, with Simon training you or your team you can only benefit. Thank you Simon, regards Carol.

Carol Allen Srixon Sports Europe

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.

Sales Training Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

Working with Simon is one of the best decisions I’ve made. He has brought so much to the sales team and made us a stronger organisation. He is on hand whenever you need him and he really does offer post training assistance to delegates, something most trainers fail to deliver. Personally I find him a great sounding board and would strongly recommend working with him. Without doubt a great man and someone I know I will always stay in touch with.

Andrew Boxer Sales Director. Factory Media

What a great experience! Simon’s passion to mentor sales people is clear from the start and of our sales team greatly benefited from their time with Simon. A sincere recommendation of someone that is a leader in their field!

Kevin Vlad Business Development Executive, The Medicine Maker

Simon is a highly skilled professional trainer and coach. He offers tailored solutions to fit your business needs. I was fortunate enough to be immersed in his SerialTrainer7 sales academy and refresher sessions which were extremely useful and propelled me to successes in my own role. Simon can work with all types of businesses and train a variety of roles. A delve into the world of SerialTrainer7 will not disappoint!

Personal Development & Coaching Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

I met Simon over a decade ago when he trained the sales team at Future US. I was a newb Account Executive in my first ad role in the video game industry. His way of teaching and lessons left a mark on me, so much, that I reached out to him about doing private sessions 4,800 miles away. In this ever-changing landscape, I realized that I was not equipped with the negotiation tools to navigate with the various facets of customers that we encounter today. Simon provided me with invaluable insights and clear direction to help me drive the business forward with a modern-day approach. I will be signing up for more private sessions (conducted over Zoom) and highly recommend Simon for anyone, anywhere, looking to improve or to step up their game.

Christina Grushkin VP, Brand Partnerships at StreamElements

I’ve recently attended a couple of Simon’s training sessions and their way of coaching is brilliant. They give real life examples and new ways of thinking. Their training has definitely developed my own skills and I would highly recommend their training.

Lewis Bacon Trust Recruitment Coordinator, NHS Professionals

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

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.

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7

I don't think I'm alone in saying that when you see the words 'management training session' suddenly blocking out three hours of your day, you can't help but get THAT sinking feeling. And yet, from the moment we loaded up our Zoom call of five managers, Simon was immediately engaging, charismatic and genuinely inspirational. His training style had us constantly involved, discussing concepts and our own perspectives, and he cultivated an honest environment where we felt safe to share our thoughts. After only a few hours we were hungry for further reading, and the topics discussed had an immediate impact on my interactions with the team. Our follow up one-to-one call after the session was invaluable, and I feel significantly better placed to deal with the management challenges of our new working situation.

Louise Blain Writer, producer & presenter, Dialect Inc

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

Simon has carried out various training for my management team over recent years and he has been fantastic. Every time Simon conducts his training, my staff leave enthused, excited and eager to implement and put into practice everything they have learned. This is not only down to the high quality training aides but is also down to the instructor, Simon, himself. Simon's natural flair and passion is simply infectious. He has such a vast knowledge on all management subjects and the way he delivers it, really resonates with all of my staff. Simon's greatest skill though is understanding people and how we are all different. He is very quick to read and understand people, how they work and their strengths and weaknesses and automatically tailors his approach to ensure they gain the most from his sessions. A really exception trainer.

George Robert Knott Operations Manager at Acado

Just finished the second instalment of Sales Leadership Management training under the expert stewardship of Simon @ Serial Trainer 7. What a brilliant day, Simon has the unique talent of delivering a dynamic session in such an open, relaxed and informal manner. He has such a vast and deep understanding of all his topics covered, together with a complete reading list to further support his coaching. It is always a pleasure to work and continue to learn with Simon as his training skills are second to none.
