A new programme of Management Development Workshops for a London based client started this month.  Module 1 was attended by Cohort 1 consisting of HR and Regional Managers and Cohort 2 consisting of Operations Managers.  Some positive feedback has been received from one of the delegates who said ‘This course was really good and makes you look at a few different methods. I had been thinking for a while about 1:1’s so I’m going to crack on and get everyone’s planned in.  Alistair was brilliant.  I don’t think I’ve ever met a more positive and enthusiastic person!’


Some lovely feedback has been received from the CHRP Cohort 5 delegates who have now completed their final MER assessment.  ‘You’ve been a great tutor and I really appreciate all you’ve done to help me get through to the end of the course - Thank You!!  ‘Thank you for all you help and support throughout the whole programme – very much appreciated.’  ‘Thanks for all your support and encouragement along the way. I think you’ve made it an enjoyable programme and no doubt a more supportive 10 months than I was expecting.’  ‘Many thanks for the encouragement.’  ‘I feel so proud to have done this, it’s not easy managing work and home life, but it’s a real sense of achievement having completed the CHRP.’  ‘Thanks for all your help Alistair, it’s been lovely to have you as our tutor.’ ‘Thank you so much for all your help and patience during the programme.’
