Testimonials

Patrick's skills both as an ex-finance director and a coach have been invaluable

Patrick's skills both as an ex-finance director and a coach have been invaluable in supporting our Leadership Development Programme and employee engagement effort.

Credibility and capability at both levels isn't the norm - but Patrick cruises through these challenges with ease

Patrick adds value in our programmes by simultaneously relating instinctively with delegate groups on leadership behaviours and operating strategically with our business leaders to demonstrate business value from the programmes. Credibility and capability at both levels isn't the norm - but Patrick cruises through these challenges with ease.

Two days of training I will definitely remember for a long time!

I have followed many sales and training courses but Patrick’s “Experienced Presenter” course was different.  Whilst learning the technicalities, Patrick also guided us with practical exercises in front of a camera to give critical feedback.  The feedback was very useful.  Two days of training I will definitely remember for a long time! Thank you, Patrick!


He held the audience's attention, stimulated, entertained and educated us. Great session!

Fab takeaways from Patrick's workshop for speakers today on building and evidencing Positive Personal Impact. He held the audience's attention, stimulated, entertained and educated us. Great session! Many Thanks


Patrick's enthusiasm is infectious, and I am looking forward to putting my newly acquired skills into practice. Highly recommended.

I had a session with Patrick on improving presentation and personal impact skills. It was brilliant! Patrick helped me to see presenting in a new light, providing me with lots of amazing tips and suggestions. His enthusiasm is infectious, and I am looking forward to putting my newly acquired skills into practice. Highly recommended.


I have recommended him to all my close network in L&D and would be delighted to work with him again!" - Colette Wall - PM L&D Lead - ENGIE

I brought Patrick into Engie when I was the PM L&D Lead. I interviewed numerous candidates for the associate role that I needed to design and deliver the Finance material of the Account Managers' development programme. As soon as I spoke to Patrick I knew he was the man for the job, and I was right. Despite his wealth of Finance and learning experience he recognised that he had little knowledge of Facilities Management and he dedicated a huge amount of time researching the industry, the challenges, the opportunities, and designed a great Finance Module. All SMEs who worked with him gave fantastic feedback, his audience evaluations were excellent and as his professional observer I was very confident of his delivery and role as ambassador for the company. He received all feedback with good grace, made necessary changes and provided detailed and timely evaluations after each event. I have recommended him to all my close network in L&D and would be delighted to work with him again!
