“First of all, it was a pleasure to meet you and all the other members in the course. It was a pleasure to listen to your Business experience and I really enjoyed your positive attitude towards Business and life! I spent the last 2 weeks on course taking in as much as possible and it has been a great experience. I have come back re-energized and full of new ideas and plan on implementing them soon.”

“Patrick is an inspired speaker, he is patient and indulgent in sharing his experience and wryly restrained when inflicting his wit!”
Andre Rostant

“Having a small group in the class was a real positive as with Patrick’s guidance meant that we could easily discuss OUR issues rather than just going through a curriculum. Having said that the course notes and tools have become an invaluable asset to my management of the business.”
David Stanton Director – Admiral Voice and Data

“Hi Patrick,

Thanks very much for your session today, I found it really useful. Thanks also for offering to send me the Excel sheets with the tools you gave us, I’m looking forward to getting them. And what a great idea of yours to ask others to fill them in so I get their perspective, I will definitely do this.

That was a really nice touch to ask the other delegates to give me their reaction to my alternative Vision statements; it left me in no doubt which one to choose. Your customer focus is very apparent, you walk the talk. Thanks again.”
Peter Tattersall Managing Director – Tattersall Training Ltd
