What Clients Are Saying

An excellent presentation from Julie I hope she can come back to do a follow up.

I’m so inspired to get my business off the ground, I am confident that no other innovative project such as ‘Crocus Market’ exist and I would love the chance to support budding entrprenuers to promote their products and services and offer consultation to enable their business to grow.

The Business start up course was WONDERFUL and inpsiring!” Very Generous and caring trainers who share their skills and contacts.


Oliver Goodman

The customer service NVQ has been very positive for me. Julie Lawn knows that I never finish what I start.
There has been some hurdles that I have had to jump – even at the starting block, but it was great to get on the wavelength of the course. I have now finished across the line, my line and the Axa red Line
I am very much interested in another NVQ level for the future.
Its all down to Julie and a few members of my workmates in the department, in giving me confidence and letting me know more about my role at AXA.”


RS, Axa Assistance

Cute Dog’s Project Management course literally had me jumping off my seat with enthusiasm! I ran back to my office to encourage ALL of my team to go to the next course! It was the most useful 2 days training I have ever had!
