He also makes training fun and engaging, so that the lessons stick with people, by using highly participative approach and techniques. So many training sessions are boring because one has to sit there listening to a talking head droning on, but Paul’s sessions are never like that!"
"I feel Paul's real strength is the interpreting the model into real life and facilitating what should be done next. The key moment of the day was when people realized that they are all accountable and need to contribute in order to shape the future of the team."
"Together Roger, Steve and Paul make a highly effective team and each brings their own experiences to bear to inspiring and undoubtedly practical effect - highly recommended."
"It's been personally very rewarding and inspiring to work with you and Denise (please pass on my thanks to her) and I'm sure we can do more together in the future.... Nice people and a great offering...you really can't go wrong!"

We particularly appreciated your work in advance to tailor your presentation to mesh with our exisiting coaching model, the clarity of your delivery and above all how much you engaged with the team during exercises. So many managers have already commented on the inspiration they took from the session – thank you for helping us get off to such a good start to the year."

I also wanted to thank you for the organisation from your end, and for the help that your office staff provided me. It was a pleasure to work with you."
