“I often hear myself say “Great opportunity to use your PDW skills” – or, in shorthand, just “PDW!” This has been the most effective training I have done in my career – and to call it training downplays it” –

Jonathan York, Director

Teleware

“Particularly good feedback from the team on all the practise sessions as this really brings the theory to life – and a great team helping to do that.” –

Steve Howarth, CEO

Go Outdoors

Jonathan York, Director

Teleware

“A brilliant course. It just ticks all the boxes for me, its relevant to me, relevant to my role, relevant to my development. Tim is always brilliant and Paul and Elan were superb also.” –

Danny Hensby, Head of Product Development

Go Outdoors

“You say what you are going to do and deliver on that promise. Friendly flexible approach and feel to the company which I love and you want to work with us not against us, but challenge when you feel you need to. You are also always looking to improve and constantly ask for feedback. When you visit your offices its always a very warm welcome and whether I have a £200 budget or £200,000 budget your approach is the same which is great. You always make yourself available which is not always my experience with other providers when projects are moving along.” –

Jonathan York, Director

Go Outdoors

“There are no hidden costs and you are clear on what you will and won’t provide so there is never cost creep which is above my expectations and experiences with other providers. You work really hard to build great relationships so you understand us as a business which I like and you are really flexible in your style and approach doing what is right for your customer which has exceeded my expectations. You also are willing to support with influencing and putting presentations together to support that influencing which is above expectations. You have also let me use your office space again which helps the relationship aspect. Nothing is ever too much trouble” –

Jonathan York, Director

Duncan & Toplis

“Good balance between thoery and then being able to put this into practice in relevant situations for work. Very positive atmosphere to learn in and very interactive style, which i found great to learn from. Really positive atmosphere and feed back is given really well, allowing you to focus on specfic areas where you could do better, or approach differently.” –

Claire Hulme, Associate Director

PKF Littlejohn

“I have seen a real embedding of skills and behaviours amongst many of our client facing partners, and the results are already starting to show. Our investment in a totally unique business development programme with you is now helping us to retain clients, win new ones, and achieve higher fees in a way that for many of us, we were not able to do nearly as well before.” –

“Jo is great to work with, a true coach, she opens the door and gives you room to explore and expand your mind, then when you think you’ve found your limit…there she is again with the question you didn’t know needed to be asked. Off you go again. After our sessions I always felt like I was ready to take on the world.” –

Kim Wainwright, Technology Consultant

Precision People

“PDW gave me an entirely new perspective on how to grow my business and achieve my personal ambitions. We now have a clear and measurable plan to grow the business and increase profits, and give people visibility of how they grow with us, and we are well on our way to achieving it” –

“Professional delivery of proven techniques. A genuine understanding and willingness to improve.” –

James Dallas, CEO

Armstrong Watson

“Fantastic learning with assessors/trainers who really get into the characters you ask them to play. Learning about the different behavioural styles will not only be useful in the work place, but in general life too. I am finding myself constantly deciding what a person might be and adapting/flexing to accommodate them. As always a fantastic two days with so much learning, but the way in which the training is delivered, means I retain what I learn and can now practice. Thanks to the team once again for such a great experience. I can’t wait for the next one.” –

Karen Thompson, Payroll Director

Notts CC

The School Finance department of Nottinghamshire County Council have used PDW as a training facility for many years. Communication with Lisa is always excellent from our original booking right through to after we’ve attended. The location is excellent with enough parking. The drinks machine is always ready for our arrival and the buffet that is provided is very tasty. If we have any problems on the day of our training they are always dealt with efficiently and speedily. We hope we’ll be able to use the facilities for many years to come. –
