I liked that the event was relaxed/simple/straight to the point and gave opportunities for sharing experiences and knowledge. It reaffirmed what I had thought and provided alternative approaches to developing engagement of staff. Senior Manager. Public Sector. at Leadership Skills for Engaging your People

The Take Control of your Career masterclass really makes you think about your strengths and how you can turn barriers to career progression into strengths by means of short activities that step by step dig deeper. Very relevant and personal, not just general advice you’ve heard 100s of times before. Manager. Academia.

Sue helps you to empower yourself in such a short period of time. Participant in Take Control of your Career masterclass

A thought-provoking morning with a supportive facilitator. This allowed honest reflections and a clarity of thinking around what needs to change. Participant in Take Control of your Career masterclass

The introduction to Executive Coaching session was engaging and practical, and I can see how I could be even better. Sue gave us space to think about learning, development and leadership away from the desk. I liked the interaction and space for discussion to gain other people’s perspectives. Senior manager. Public Sector.

This was valuable and thought-provoking. I liked the approach to understand the value of coaching within an organisation both as a leader and in having an executive coach. Executive Coaching masterclass participant

There were lots of practical examples that I can apply at work. It is a very interesting topic that is directly relevant to my role as a department head. Senior manager. Financial Services. At Understanding Motivation
