    • MWU_logoFollowing the delivery of a 2 day Precision Leadership masterclass a delegate said I don’t want to come across all gushing but honestly I felt that more “sunk in” and stuck through one day in training with yourself than all of the NVQ sessions I have attended so far! Training to me instantly conjures up images of a classroom scenario and role plays, which although just about palatable to myself, I can honestly say turns me off immediately. The session with you was informative, formal enough to get the point across but informal enough to remain fun and well-paced. Honestly looking forward to the next!”

    Blaby District Council
    • logo-blabyAs an organisation, BDC wanted to capitalise on the strategic HR opportunity available to all public and private sector organisations in 2013. MadAbout designed and continue to deliver a comprehensive and clearly defined People Strategy which has prompted the Chief Executive to say:

       “Keep poking, it’s fabulous and just what we need.  You add enormous value that most interims would never be able to ever aspire to.”

      Other work at BDC includes a series of Team Builds…

      “After recruiting the services of MadAbout to arrange a “Team Away day” for my team after a stressing department restructure within our organisation, I was so impressed by the level of commitment offered by MadAbout to personalise the content of the training to suit the team’s individual needs.  Jim delivered it with a very professional and enthusiastic approach, which rubbed off on the Team Members, it was straight to the point and has definitely brought the team closer.”

    MotorPoint
    • motorpoint-logo“I highly recommend the MadAbout team, they truly believe in what they do, they really understand and know their theory and can deliver it in a way that people understand and are engaged in.  They will challenge in a positive way and give specific and valuable feedback. Their approach engages learners, it makes them stop and think, reflect and takes them from rational acceptance to the emotional motivation needed to go away and make change for the better.  The better being for them as a person and also in terms of business results.

      The sales training they have provided has immediately increased our sales results, the management development has built confidence and competence in a number of areas.  They provide robust evaluation and detailed information that really helps us to build on the training they have delivered. Their ability to communicate at all levels has meant that they quickly engage with the variety of people they work with from minimum wage yard hands to Directors.  We absolutely know we get value for money from them and quantifiable results.”
