HERE IS WHAT OTHERS THINK

I’m glad we decided to go ahead with this, the importance of investing in your team is that much greater in an increasingly remote & distributed workplace.

The energy of Catherine was wonderful, for a course that needs people to feel motivated we couldn’t have asked for more.

Very interesting content and applicable in real-life situations. The trainer was excellent – knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining.

Fast-paced, interesting, relevant, and practical content. Good structure of talking and breakouts, the time flew by.

Just another thank you from me for today’s session. Went down really well and people were talking about the models and continuing the discussion throughout the afternoon.

Paul has exceptional ability to take on and manage complex and sensitive programmes with an eye to the constraints of budget. The quality of advice to the business-leaders was first-rate. I would not hesitate to work with Paul and his organisation again.

I value working in partnership. We have built a relationship that has led to pilots, tweaks and better results. I would recommend BiteSize Learning for their delivery and understanding of client’s needs.

- Andrea Farrell Head Organisational Development and Learning Manager, University of The Arts London

“I wanted to say a big thank you for the training you ran for us last Friday. The feedback has been universally positive, and it was certainly one of the best training sessions I’ve ever attended.. I think it gave many people some tools to be much more confident in interacting, which was exactly the aim!”

- Hannah Purves Claims Director, Markel International

“The short focussed presentation of the critical information, supported by electronic class notes, was excellent as it allowed maximal learning in a short, but intense, session. This is definitely the way forward for management training, as far as I am concerned.”

- Professor Niamh Moran Head of the School of Postgraduate Studies, Royal College of Surgeons Ireland
