"Marie produced the training modules to very high quality, with well thought through and value added content and supporting materials. The delegates provided excellent feedback on the quality of the content and the style of delivery by Marie, which she was able to bring to life with relevant examples. 

The quality of the modules and delivery by Marie allowed the delegates to feel confident in cascading to their employees. The training was received very well by employees, and we have asked Marie to refresh the training and deliver more Train the Trainer sessions to new middle managers on an annual basis.

Marie is very personable, professional and easy to do business with. She quickly builds a good rapport with her clients and delegates, is able to provide the right balance of empathy and support and challenge  to help the delegates get the most out of the sessions. I would describe Marie’s delivery style as engaging, positive and empowering.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Marie for any training, development and coaching needs within your organisation."
