Don't take our word for it...
Account Management – The Advanced Account Handler.
Polly was very supportive, engaging and encouraging. I came out with an uplift to my confidence and some new knowledge.
Effective Resource Management.
The pacing and structure of the workshop was fantastic – especially considering that it was online and some activities had to be translated into the virtual version. Jo held our attention throughout and was insightful and welcoming, establishing a warm camaraderie and an open atmosphere to ask questions.
Communications Supervisor for Europe
Prior to the training, Jo and Melissa set up a call to define a plan. The training itself was fantastic. Melissa was structured, to the point and inspired discussion about how the tools can be applied. The team was engaged and found the takeaways practical and applicable. I also recommend the MapsTell personality test as the results are very accurate.
Content Production, from script to screen.
The content production session with Leila was brilliant. Not only is she a charismatic trainer, she’s also really passionate about the subject, which is infectious.The session as incredibly informative, with tons of useful information and tools that I’m certain I’ll use in my day to day role.
