Clients, colleagues and workshop participants love my work

It’s critical that businesses take the time to strategise and reconnect across departments, and a seasoned facilitator such as Dan can help guide you towards a strong culture and clear strategy.

Even though the workshop was really short, I learned things that were immediately useful. In staff reviews, I began to listen a lot more, and be a lot clearer about what I was asking of the person. Straight away, I saw an upswing in performance, with staff members going the extra mile without being asked. I now realise how obvious this is and wonder why was I not doing it already.

I came away totally pumping ahead. Within a week afterwards, I’d changed a lot about how I manage and delegate to people. Now I trust myself more to be a manager and I trust them to be delegated to, so when I push something their way they will deal with it and follow right through.

I found the workshop incredibly valuable. It provided insight into relationships and communication and gave us perspective on how everyone interacts. People were having epiphanies about their relationships, their role in a team. It removed friction.

Great World Premier of your Cooperation and Communication course Dan. I got a lot out of it. I hope in reality we can collaborate like this. It would save a lot of misunderstanding and wasted time and money.

We asked Dan to help us pull together our Strategy Day. Dan worked with us to develop an overarching approach for the day, helped draft the agenda and was instrumental in designing the interactive aspect of the day that helped to deliver a key outcome and make the overall day a success. Dan’s wrangling was invaluable and he was, as always, a delight to work with

Dan worked with us to produce an effective plan for a company strategy day which led to many positive comments from participants on how well it worked. You should talk to him about his insights into group interaction.
