This was the best course I have ever been on. Sheila was so captivating and her own HR experiences make the course come alive. She was really good at making us look at things from every angle.

Angela Larkcom, UK Head of HR, Althea UK and Ireland Ltd

All HR professionals should attend this course! The content was spot on, thought-provoking and very interactive – a masterclass in how HR functions should operate within organisations. Sheila really is a facilitator in every sense of the word – she draws experience and information out of delegates and makes every element relevant to them and the challenges and opportunities they face. She has vast HR knowledge and experience and gave us lots of opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification where needed.

Natasha Foster, Group HR Manager, 2020 Legal Limited

This is a must-do course for those who want to fully understand the role of HR as a business partner. The content and delivery were excellent: Sheila was very engaging and shared practical examples from her extensive experience in HR along with techniques, skills and tips which I found very useful. I really enjoyed the course and meeting/listening to the other delegates.

Alyson Eynon, HR Business Partner, Henderson Group

An engaging two days which seemed to fly by and I can really see the value of the content I will initiate into my day-to-day job. The speakers were informative and able to relate to real-life scenarios, which helped me understand the subject better.

Shaun Lightbody, HR Business Partner-South Area, Five Guys

The course was detailed and interesting with an element of fun which made the day more enjoyable. Jo presented very well and encouraged us to ask questions.

Suzanne Glenie, Admin, Alston Garrard & Co Ltd

Jo was a fountain of knowledge. I can't believe how quickly the course went and the small group gave us more opportunity to interact.

Orleen Knight, Office Manager/HR Generalist, Opsview Ltd

Very good course for most levels of aspiring and current HR Advisors.

Sarah Braybrooke, HR Adviser, St Christopher's Hospice

This was a really useful course with a great overview of the key elements of the role, as promised.

Jacki Gray, HR Assistant, Historic Royal Palaces

An engaging and insightful course. The two days went by very quickly and I did not feel at any point that it was irrelevant to me.

Shaun Lightbody, HR Business Partner-South Area, Five Guys

The content was great, we covered everything we needed to cover. Jo was fab and very knowledgeable.
