Your delivery of the Consultative Selling, Negotiation and Presentation Skills modules has been a real success. Every piece of feedback, without exception, has been positive. This is both in terms of the course content and your engaging style. In the first week after training we calculated a real increase in sales of over £40,000. Our Human Resources Director, is delighted with the results, we very much hope that you will continue to be a business partner with us.

Thank you for your energy and enthusiasm for the subject matter and for sharing your level of knowledge with the teams in a fun and focused way.

Chris’s negotiation course forms a key part of our training plans for people above Associate Director level. It's a very impactful day. The mix of theory, examples and practice hits the spot and the result is that people feel confident to use techniques immediately. We have recorded many instances of people pushing back with clients and negotiating successfully on time and cost. Early success inspires greater confidence and the practice establishes itself quickly and thoroughly through the business. Director, MMR Research

I have worked with Chris on more than a dozen speaker events and training workshops over the last 18 months and cannot speak highly enough about the content he delivers, the manner in which he delivers his content and his overall professionalism.

Our audiences tend to be the owners and directors of SME businesses who operate at a high level and the feedback I have received from them after they have attended one of Chris's sessions is always excellent. Words such as stimulating, valuable, participative and time well spent are often used to describe their day.

One session that Chris presented which particularly sticks out in my mind was a 60-minute session that he delivered at one of our conferences to an audience of around 200 people last year. The presentation was highly informative and helpful and Chris delivered it with genuine energy and dynamism, which, in turn, really engaged the audience and generated plenty of discussion and debate afterwards.

In my dealings with Chris I have always found him highly professional, organised, flexible and I get the sense that he genuinely cares that the people who spend a day with him at one of his workshops leave with some new ways to approach what they do and that they feel empowered to try new things in their job.

Chris is always a pleasure to spend time with and has a razor sharp intellect, which again make his presentations enjoyable and ensures that he is always able to interact with delegates at an appropriate level and respond to their questions from a position of genuine experience.

I look forward to working with Chris for many years to come.

I have been a big fan of yours since we did your Negotiation Training several years ago and I feel it changed the way I worked and the confidence I felt for the better. I have enjoyed helping others around me develop this confidence and am always grateful for your wise words and help. Senior director, Wasserman
