Delivery of Training is Fun, Interactive and Engaging

I have attended multiple training sessions with Shona over this last year. After the first, I really looked forward to the next session. Shona’s delivery of training is fun, interactive and engaging and as a person she is lovely and relatable. I really struggle with presenting, but Shona encouraged me to develop my confidence and Presentation skills during training and genuinely cared about my progress as an individual. This personal touch really goes a long way and helps for the training content to have a lasting impression – for understanding both yourself and other people within a business context. I feel that these training sessions were highly beneficial for my own professional development, whilst also being very interesting. I would recommend Shona to anyone! Thank you for everything Shona, I look forward to working with you again in future.

A number of Successful Presentations

Presentation Skills Feedback – “Just wanted to say thank you for running the presentation skills workshop, I’ve tried to implement all the tips we discussed, which has resulted in a number of successful presentations during this time, to a variety of audiences. I particularly found that spending some time with the audience prior to starting both helped in managing my nervous energy, and ensuring that my presentations were both relevant and relatable to those watching”

Leadership Development Programme

When I first came in I didn’t know whether I fitted in. I stressed out and wasn’t ready. I began to gain confidence in that a lot of things I was learning, I was already doing in some way. It just helped to solidify a positive view of my own performance.

I am feeling good now. Think SLT were extremely surprised at how well we did as a team. We linked together really well.


Initially sceptical about how useful the course would be and how relevant it would be to my actual working day.

As the course progressed the material and exercises began to creep into my thinking as I was at work. This was not a conscious effort on my part but I was taking on board the techniques from the classroom.


Happy at last we were going to be given some sort of training to help us in our role!

Sad to know its now ended but full of confidence and knowledge.


Before the programme I was using more intuition, my knowledge was not systemised, I had lack of leadership tools and communication with leaders was poor.

Afterwards all of the above has now improved and I am feeling more part of the team. I feel that we ca work together on resolving issue and improving. I need to ensure that tools are used and knowledge is not lost.

Training That Makes a Difference

I love receiving emails from delegates, its so rewarding to know that our training has made a difference.

” I gave my first presentation to customers last week when I visited Guatemala and presented to salesmen from Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Your great advice and training was taken into consideration throughout my preparation as well as the presentation itself. It was in Spanish which made it a bit more complicated than I thought, but I think I got my point across well and got positive feedback afterwards, as well as some points to improve on! Luckily I knew how to receive the feedback as well. Thanks again for your help”.

Bowmer Bond – People Development Programme

I am very pleased (as we all are) at the difference in the individuals you coached. You did a brilliant job. We will definitely be looking to continue working with you into the future.

Nigel Ratcliffe – June 2015

I have found the training very helpful and your style of teaching encouraging and easy to follow. As a result of the training I feel much more at ease in my current position at Bowmer Bond. I also have an increased level of self-confidence, which I think I was previously lacking. My increased confidence has made me much happier in approaching all people within the business, but especially those who were on the training course, who I now talk to regularly.
