Ros was absolutely great. It was great to get her take on what we’re doing and learn from her extensive experience. She is quite formidable. This was an opportunity to take stock with my team and we’ve walked away with so many new ideas – I don’t know where to start!

Head of Events, National Housing Federation


The course really helped the team to think outside the box and not use packages as the basis for all proposals. The trainer was positive, used real life examples, had great industry knowledge and worked with the team well to bring more out of them.

I think this in-house course was really well matched to our requirements. The event sales team needed something specific like this. The course was great in making us think about the sponsor’s mind set rather than just our show.

Exhibition Manager, Seawork


I cannot wait to implement what I have learnt. The trainer is excellent, very knowledgeable and animated. Inspiring.

The course was relevant, engaging and led by a great, solution-focused trainer. It helped that she has experienced all the things she is “teaching” about.

Companies can reap the rewards of providing training for their employees because well trained workers help increase productivity and profits. Investing in employee training should improve worker retention rates, customer satisfaction, and creativity for new product ideas.
