My coach Colin helped me to finish my project in under six months. He explained everything thoroughly and provided me with examples so I knew the standard that I could realistically aim for. He kept regular contact and monitored my progress throughout. He also insisted that I emailed or phoned him if I needed further guidance or any had questions which I found very reassuring. I found Colin very personable and approachable throughout the process and have since recommended him to a colleague. — Victoria Cooke, The Midland Hotel

Colin was a fantastic trainer and coach. He was always very professional, and a lovely person to work with. His delivery was very efficient and I always knew what work was expected from me. He was always willing to help me if I got stuck and very quick to email back. I could rely on Colin to be on time at our meetings and was organised with my next assignment. He pushed me with my work and spurred me on to take my next career leap, which I am very grateful to have done so now. Colin is a great example of what a trainer and coach should be and it was a pleasure to work with him. — Claire Russell, David Lloyd

Colin is one of the most approachable, dependable and trustworthy people I know. I have found him to be a very polite and level headed person and on the occasions where we have discussed work in detail it is apparent he is very caring and passionate about what he does. He articulates his thoughts and reasoning fluently and with ease in any situation and his written communication is exemplary. He is able to communicate and mix with a wide and varied range of people and truly is a pleasure to know. — Alison Little, Santander
