Course Feedback

I just wanted to email to ask if you could please pass on my thanks for Sofie who ran the assertiveness course on 27/28 September. I got so much out of it and am putting more and more of it into practice every day. Insightful, in-depth and thought provoking!

Neil MacGillivray - Teva UK Ltd

Such an excellent range of useful models, enough detail to properly understand how to get to grips with the idea - good breadth as well. Great structure, very participatory - a particularly good way of introducing which settles people into what is quite a personal journey of a course.

Sue Fleming - University of Brighton

I think it was very important for us to understand our rights and that we must consider others. It was a small group which made it easy to be relaxed about quite emotive subjects.

Ruth Eglinton - Legal & General Assurance Society Ltd

Very interesting & fulfilling course which will hopefully improve my standard of life.

Simon Trevena - Ridge West Garage

All course material was relevant, I will practise the models learnt and change my way of working - which will in turn improve my life.

Sue Parry - ABN AMRO

Really great, personal courses tailored to individuals and their needs. Clear and organised, couldn't recommend more.

Rachael Parsons - Oyster Healthcare Communications Ltd

Easily understandable content and a fantastic personable tutor. I have many good memories to take with me and put into action. I feel empowered.

David Smith - B&W Group Ltd

The Assertiveness & Confidence Building course went beyond my expectations. The course was very well laid out and very well led by Sofie. I have learnt a lot from this course and will put this into immediate use.

James Crowe - Hastings Insurance Services Ltd

This course is a must do. Not only to improve your communication skills at work but also to have a serious impact on your way of thinking in daily life.

Benoit Oger - University of Brighton

This course has made me believe in myself & find my strengths. It's helped me so much on a personal level, as well as in the workplace, that I can't thank you enough. I've met some truly great people and Sofie couldn't have been more helpful & understanding. I couldn't have had a better "life" tutor!

Daniela Ivanova - City Pad

Very good course. The group was very engaging and open. The tutor showed a great understanding of the subject matter.

I thought the course was excellent and it really has motivated me to want to change the way I think and feel about myself.

Georgina Adams - Hastings Insurance Services Ltd

I'm at a stage in my world where I am in the thick of fighting back from a very long way down. It was fantastic to take a two breather from daily pressures to reflect on the best approaches to take when getting back to the fray.

Timothy Graves - University of Sussex Library

I learned a lot from this course and feel that I can use what I have learned in work and social situations. Sofie, the course tutor, was engaging and knowledgable on her subject.

Nigel Senior - Semantico Limited

Would recommend this course highly as it helps you identify and resolve 'issues' or difficulties and then find ways to resolve them assertiveness and in an effective way.

Nazia Iqtedar

Excellent course. I have learnt some great skills that I can put straight to work. This course covers many strategies that can be used in personal and Business situations. It covers simple but effective ways to deal with awkward and difficult situations in everyday life. Thank you.

The course gave me lots to think about how I can improve and develop new skills in my job role. Hopefully I can use the examples in situations at work.
