Training Testimonials


Live Training Programs Testimonials - Derek Stockley

As part of the commitment to continuous improvement, training evaluations are undertaken for all training. Apart from the normal review and evaluation methods, "personal" and "individual" feedback is sometimes sought.

At two live training programs, participants were asked to provide feedback on a personal level. This was in addition to the normal course evaluations that were also completed. The feedback was unstructured and open-ended. It provides an insight into how participants feel about Derek Stockley as a presenter and trainer. Course participants were from both the public and private sectors. These testimonials are typical. Feedback from all programs is similar.
