What our clients say

  • “Brilliant, well designed course that was delivered excellently by Carolyn - she allowed us time to formulate our own ideas and perhaps go off on a tangent occasionally whilst still making sure the course was followed and learning points were made. I will definitely implement strategies and ideas that have come from the course.”
  • "The best course on management I’ve been to! Really good input, good examples and good balance between theory and practice."
  • "One member of staff whose line manager came on their first Management Development course said ‘their line manager was a changed person’ – and all for the good!" 
  • “I found the course very useful and thought provoking. I will be bringing ideas and working practices back to engage with staff and move the business forward!”
  • The average delegate rating is currently 9.4 out of 10 and everyone would recommend the Powerhouse Manager course
