Staff development testimonials

 

'I attended a workshop run by Bridget Wilkinson, and I can honestly say it was the best workshop I have ever been on. Bridget has a natural style that puts everyone at ease and fosters an atmosphere of learning, support and collegiality. She is outstanding at staff development, and I would always recommend a workshop where she is involved.' 

 

"Pam provided a bespoke teambuilding programme for our newly formed team. The team was made up of different individuals with different experiences who needed to start to pull together as a team – a real culture change for them. Pam approached this challenge in a way that recognised that not everyone loves training. Some of the team were thoroughly cynical, some “far too busy” to be there and there was even the “totally hostile” among them. Pam’s honest and open approach aligned with real expertise, engaging techniques and a lovely sense of fun made what had could have been just another corporate away day into a really great experience. Even the “totally hostile” one enjoyed the day! Not only is she really good at what she does, she is also a warm and wonderful person. I would highly recommend her!
