Customer testimonial

I was slightly skeptical about the online learning side of things, but it worked well, especially with the breakout rooms. Having a wide range of different courses to suit individual needs is also a great idea.

Chris Dickinson , Whitby Seafoods Limited

I found the Effective Communication Skills course helpful, it opened my eyes to how even body language can be a form of communication that may come across as negative. It has shown me I need to be more aware of how I come across to others when communicating with them.

Lauren McDowell , Wasdale - A Place to Stay

The courses that led to my Certificate of Learning have incredibly improved my awareness when I communicate with colleagues. I am now in control of what I want to deliver, and I have the tools to do it effectively.

Francesca Cecinati , Artesia Consulting

I found the course extremely useful and loved the psychology behind the different types of communication. I have been able to take this information back to my workplace and use the techniques to improve communication between myself and my team.

I.R , Daniella Draper

Mel really helped provide insight and offered points of difference that can help me in a professional setting. I enjoyed learning more about the ways body language and tone can have an impact. The eye accessing cues were also really interesting.
