“I have had the opportunity of seeing Ali Chadwick work in one-to-one coaching situations and her ability is really first class.”
(David Hemery MBE – Director, Performance Consultants.)
"What comes to mind when I think of Vital and Ali? Vibrant, energetic, adaptable to trainees needs, thinking on her feet, passionate, fun, knowledgeable, happy, expert without being patronising, empathetic, firm."
(Jo Woods – Managing Director, VBD Ltd.)
"Ali’s sessions are always professionally delivered. They never feel ‘off the shelf’... It is clear Ali puts time into preparing for her audience and has relevant examples and scenarios ready to help illustrate her content... She has the ability to ‘read’ her audience, expertly shaping delivery to suit what is required. I have seen her generate lively engagement from a room of more reserved delegates, manage ‘monopolising voices’ and turn around ‘training cynics’ with ease... In response to questions or discussion, she has stopped the course she has been delivering to provide segments on non-planned but relevant content in order to support/extend learning outcomes. Ali’s training is energised and she generates energy and enthusiasm for the subject in her delegates. For Ali it’s all about the individual, this combined with her radiating personality and focus on delivering learning outcomes makes her a great trainer."
(Sara Blackwell - Business Development Director, Greenwoods Solicitors LLP.)
“Thank you for all your hard work. It is fabulous and refreshing to work with a supplier who understands our business and our Learning and Development objectives so well and brings immense energy and passion to everything they do.”
(Caitlin Hammond – Learning and Development Manager, IPC Media.)
“As a trainer, she is inspirational and builds self-confidence in others and continually strives to deliver perfect training/coaching solutions… Ali is one of the most passionate people I know, and I meet loads of people!”
(Sarah Barnes – Head of Learning and Development, Emap Automotive.)
“Infectious passion... I have heard people say how motivational you have been to them… I know your skills aren’t just about passion, motivation and achievement; you pass the litmus test by being able to produce ‘hard’ measures of success to relate training to the bottom line – increased and measurable productivity.”
(Denis Sartain – Director, New Learning Programmes.)
"We have tried a number of trainers in the past to varying degrees of success, but I have to say that the feedback received from my team tells me that Ali is the best! All my business development managers came back from training highly motivated, eager to get on and with far more knowledge of the job requirements than when they started. In an ideal world it would be nice to have Ali working with them every day."
(Sean O'Driscoll - Managing Director, David Hall Publishing.)
"There’s such a buzz from everyone this morning about the training and a lot of interest from a lot of people round the company asking how it went. This is exactly the kind of reaction that I was hoping for. It’s ever so interesting listening to everyone’s calls this morning, I can only describe it as a newly born Bambi finding it’s feet! Thank you so much for the work that you did with them, it’s been such a positive influence on the whole team."
(David Leach-Davies - Group Head of Media Sales, Associa Ltd.)
"It has been thoroughly inspiring to work with Ali Chadwick and for our staff to be trained in communication skills by such an imaginative and enthusiastic coach. Ours was a 'mixed ability class' and Ali's skill in relating to a wide cross section of people with different needs is impressive and has been a real gift to us."
(The Reverend Canon Bruce Ruddock, Peterborough Cathedral.)
“Ali radiates enthusiasm for life and respect for others… We’ve trained together as coaches many times, and coaching is her special gift. I’ve worked with over 200 managers in my time at Emap; as a listener and motivator, Ali is in the top three.”
(Rupert Paul – Editorial Director, Emap Active.)
"Ali is a truly professional trainer - her management courses have been inspirational to our managers and she always 'hits the mark'. Her innovative and creative approach really gets delegates thinking."
