Such a brilliant programme which takes the recipient on a journey of personal discovery. It was sincere but not patronising, fun but not frivolous and led to a sense of purpose.

Elizabeth, Bradford

I was able to look at developing a five year plan in a supportive and well structured environment. I feel motivated and have a clearer focus on the steps I need to take to move towards achieving my goals and aspirations. The fact that a holistic approach to change was explored, has meant that I am looking at the transition as integral to all other aspects of my life- and therefore seeking to achieve balance.     

Kim, Nottingham

The course brought to the fore things that I had wanted to explore in the past and brought new enthusiasm to these projects.

Valerie, Leeds

The course and personal coaching allowed me to re-evaluate and assess where I was and where I wanted to be.  The exercises were widely applicable and many people facing changes in their lives embarking on new challenges would benefit.

Stella, York

Was a brilliant opportunity for us to understand where our organisation was headed and also what strengths and talents we have in our team and how they all fitted together to make us more strategically successful as a company.

David, London

Gave me new ideas about how to manage my personal career in our large and growing organisation which has up to now been quite daunting.

Samantha, London

The course was an excellent opportunity for me to think personally about what I want to achieve in the next 3 to 5 years. I haven’t taken stock for years!

Susan, Oxford

Realised how stunted my career development has been and saw avenues to develop

Simon, Leeds

Helpful aspects of the course were:

•    The structured activity and opportunity to reflect & focus on my 5 year plan. 
•    Meeting, learning from and feeling inspired by a variety of other people
•    The excellent workbook / resource folders
•    Mix of learning styles and activities,
•    Competent and enabling facilitators- no slow death by PowerPoint!
•    Good balance of interactive group and personal working time

Richard, Newcastle

I enjoy my day job tremendously but have always had the nagging desire to be an author. Personal coaching has helped me gain the confidence and motivation to enter the publishing world as a freelance journalist which I can do quite comfortably alongside my day job. With the support of my coach I have also developed further plans for writing a book.

Suzanne, York

My world fell apart when I was made redundant after 15 years in the media and marketing industry. My coach helped me work through the initial disappointment/loss, fears and anxieties. My knee-jerk reaction was to immediately look for work as a marketing executive but knew that the industry was making cuts all over the region resulting in quite a hopeless situation. My personal coaching sessions helped me to step-back, understand my strengths and weaknesses and inspired me to develop my own marketing business which has now been thriving for over 4 years and growing.

Liz, Wetherby

The workshop has helped me to see some of the broader options available to me. I also got lots of thought and ideas from other graduates who have experienced what I am going through.
