Testimonials

We're very lucky to have worked, and continue to work, with some wonderful organisations and individuals. Take a look below at some of the nice things people have said about us, after experiencing our training.

Testimonials for our in-house training:

Alison Pemberton Head of Major Giving at NSPCC  

"The combination of his knowledge drawn from NLP and Paul's own experience as a major donor fundraiser means he's in a unique position to apply the theory of the first to the practice of the second. In delivering training for my team, he provided a fresh approach and look at how to communicate with major donors to get results. It was a stimulating and thought-provoking training session."

'The tools and techniques that Paul gave us in our training workshop were invaluable. One of our fundraisers recently secured a major gift of £250,000 and it was all down to the fantastic rapport they built, which was the focus of Paul's training. It was so good to spend the time working on this and really eye-opening how NLP is a practical tool to be great at it. This huge gift is testament to that and his training is something I would absolutely recommend.'

"I asked Paul to put together a training session to help meet the needs of three teams (Trusts and Statutory, Corporate and Major Donors). Paul used his considerable fundraising experience to ensure he bought to life the communication concepts using relevant examples across the three disciplines. The whole team were fully engaged in the training and keenly debated the merits of the techniques we were discussing. I found Paul’s approach and delivery style to be well informed and accessible."

And some of our favourites:

“Due to the NLP techniques I learned from Paul’s training, we’ve now secured gifts amounting to £90,000 and secured partnerships that will see our brand-awareness spread nationwide. I would definitely recommend his training”

“This was a refreshing approach to fundraising communication training; it addressed the needs of individual teams. Very clear style and great to have someone willing to share examples to put the training in context. Usually hate role plays but found these fun, interesting and helpful!”
“Thank you so much for a really interesting and inspiring day.
Not only have I gained tools to use to improve my fundraising, I have also gained the tools to manage my own behaviour and believe that I can succeed! “
“Found it incredibly useful and was introduced to learnings, skills and methods I had never heard of and will definitely use. I now feel more confident about tackling challenges at work around communication and engaging in person and on the phone with donors. Very practical.”
“I’ve learned so much! This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to step outside of my thinking and observe it from the outside-in; this really helped me to understand the changes I need to make. I’m definitely going to have a different approach to my work now, and the way I handle donors. I feel MUCH more confident - thank you!”
