I just wanted to say thank you very much for such an interesting and enjoyable session yesterday. I had so many great conversations and came away with much food for thought. Well done for selecting such a great venue and for an excellent approach.

I have found coaching sessions with North West Employers extremely useful, both personally and professionally. My coach has been patient, caring and understanding and has always been happy to speak to me when I have needed extra reassurance.


Very informative day with a great deal of food for thought.


You have helped to improve my confidence in saying how I feel about leadership.

I thought that the webinar was a great flexible way to share learning and knowledge.


I wanted to personally say ‘thank you’ for the Quality Conversation workshops you have run for us. The initial timescales were very challenging and you have delivered the workshops with great conviction, energy and flexibility.
