"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
Thank you for such a great training session. You shared some great presentation skills tips and it was great to put theory into practice with the presentation karaoke, which is a great idea.
Lynette Saunders Senior Analyst. Econsultancy
Simon is one of kindest, considerate and courteous people I have met, blessed with an abundance of emotional intelligence.
Phil Churchill Marketing Consultant, Coach & Trainer. Churchill Associates
Arguably, one of the best trainers I have had the pleasure of meeting. Confident, open and with the ability to put everybody at ease whilst delivering the training in a precise and professional manner which will get you thinking and looking at your own styles of management. I very much look forward to future encounters and strongly recommended Simon to any and all businesses – you and your teams will benefit!

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.
Matthew Scholes Internal Account Manager at ComputerWorld
Simon has been working with the sales team at ComputerWorld over the past several months and it's been a truly enriching experience. With the plethora of "trainers" just regurgitating the same old spiel it's refreshing to have someone come in and not only teach you new techniques but to also teach in new and innovative ways. Three days worth of training and not a PowerPoint in sight! Simon is a natural born Salesman but more than that he's an expert teacher who clearly has passion for what he does and that really shines through. If you're considering using Simon's services you won't be disappointed!
Max Garrett Security Solutions Specialist at Computerworld Group
Simon recently ran a presentation training course with many of the Unifrog team and his impact on the team's energy and motivation during lockdown was incredible! Simon covered a vast amount of relevant information and has left the team feeling empowered to excel within their roles and have even more impact with schools. I'd thoroughly recommend Simon and look forward to working with him again soon!
Tom Haywood-Pope Head of UK Sales & Delivery, Unifrog
Simon’s training style is just stunning, the sessions are engaging and interactive. We had an intense week of training around the sales process, buyer signals and motives, negotiation tactics and much more. The modules are filled with in-depth information yet easy to understand and apply into action. I would highly recommend Simon and look forward to working with him again!

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's training has been fundamental in helping me to step up my skills as an employee, a colleague, and a manager. His straightforward, no-nonsense approach will have you quickly seeing every day work situations in a new light, as well as your role in your business and team. I've learned how to amplify not only my own strengths, but those of my teammates, too. Expect sage advice, expect to be faced with challenges, and expect to (safely) step outside your comfort zone, with great reward. I'd recommend Simon and SerialTrainer7 in a heartbeat.
Emma Park Campaign Executive / Freelance Artist / WIGJ Ambassador
He challenges me to take responsibility for my personal performance and always tailors training to individual circumstances. I apply his advice and always experience direct results, he is the most effective trainer and coach I have ever encountered.
Clair Atkins Account Director. Future Plus
Simon offered both professional and personal help at a time I needed it to progress.

Management Development Testimonials for SerialTrainer7
Simon was recommended to us just under 12 months ago when we asked him to run a Selling Skills Workshop for our Sales team. Simon is enthusiastic, engaging and a complete expert in his field and the training was some of the most successful we have delivered. Since then I have come to view Simon as an extension to our HR function providing training ranging from Customer Services and Resilience through to Communications Skills and our next exciting project of creating a management academy for our first line managers. Without Simon I simply wouldn’t have been able to deliver this calibre of training to our teams within my budget. I trust in his delivery entirely and always find we are on the same page when we discuss the outputs required from training. He has fantastic insight through his work with so many organisations worldwide and uses a great blend of the fundamentals of any given subject with the latest thinking and application in today’s forever changing workplace. Simon is a pleasure to work with and I’m thrilled to call him part of the Green Gourmet team.
Caroline Barnes Head of HR at Green Gourmet Ltd
I first met Simon in the Summer of 2019 during our face to face training course. This year we had a new focus on refreshing our skills and due to COVID the course was covered virtually and I had initial reservations. I can honestly say I did not need to worry. There was no death by powerpoint just a wealth of knowledge delivered in an interactive way that left me with tactics I could use implement immediately. Simon has a way of making everyone feel an important and equal part of the conversation. Simon is authentic, likeable and talks with passion that cannot fail to excite you, rare among the trainers I have seen over the years! Thank you!
Helen Johnson Business Development Manager, isGroup Signs
I have had the pleasure of working with Simon for the past 6 months, during which he has provided a comprehensive management development programme to our business and coaching. Simon is a truly inspirational trainer and coach. He has an ability to engage with a wide range of staff due to his knowledge, engaging and interactive training methods and infectious personality. I would highly recommend his services to any business looking at investing in management development.
Lisa Saunders HR Director. John Wainwright & Co. Ltd.
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.
