Below are a variety of comments that have been made by people who have attended Employment Law workshops run by our presenters:


“I have known Derek for just over 7 years through my current role as Training & Development Manager for Stagecoach UK Bus Ltd.  Within Stagecoach, Derek has delivered a series of learning / development events to a broad range of employees. These development events have focussed upon employment legislation & HR topics, and have consistently received first class feedback from my colleagues.Derek has designed and delivered tailor made solutions to Stagecoach, from short instructive courses to longer term staff development programmes. The quality of these training solutions, combined with the demonstrable HR expertise which Derek brings to the training room, have persuaded me to make these courses mandatory for many of my senior colleagues.I have attended and observed several of Derek’s courses, and I have made use of some of his supporting HR materials and management books, all of which would lead me to having absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to any other organisation. I am certain that he would very suitable to advise your charity clients on all HR related matters.  If I can supply any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.”

This was a significant cultural change for the Fire Service, yet Derek delivered the sessions in an engaging and participative style that achieved, without exception, excellent feedback from every course.
