    Manager's Toolbox (November 2021)

    Just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed this course. Sometimes when you hear ‘3-day course’ you wonder how engaging it will be, but I genuinely found it to be one of the most engaging and fun training sessions I’ve ever attended. I will be applying as much of the learning as I can to my role moving forward - thank you for taking the time to teach us.

    Excel Introduction - December 2022

    For my part I was delighted with the course – IT is not currently an area of strength of mine and consequently I can be unnerved by this field. You do have a wonderful ability to pass on your knowledge in a very friendly, unintimidating way using plain language and pacing at exactly the right rate. I was surprised that the day very quickly became a pleasure.

    Fantastic Training - Relaxed, Informative and Professional (Introduction to Management)

    Sally @ Fish4Development is a fantastic trainer, always happy to guide you in the right direction of which courses would best suit your requirements. Having undertaken one of the courses myself as well as my colleagues going on courses with Fish4Development I can assure you that the courses are extremely informative and professional whilst remaining relaxed which provides a great environment for learning!

    The size of the groups on the course can be as small as 2 which gives you a really personal experience. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend

    Fish4Development and Sally herself to anyone looking for professional training courses at fantastic prices.

    New Line Manager at Woodland Trust

    I thought everything was excellent but particularly enjoyed the parts on 'Powerful Questioning' and 'Difficult Conversations' and finding out my team role, and doing the situational leadership questionnaire and understanding when different types of leadership are needed in what situations. I also enjoyed the practical exercises with the other attendants, for example, giving each other feedback, or using the 'four dimension questioning.

    Time Management 

    I now feel better able to organise, plan and set out goals that I'd like to achieve both personally and in my work life. The most useful element for me was the four box grid. I found the course inspiring and valuable

    Report Writing - December 2022

    From eight delegates I received 49 Excellent, 13 Good and no fairs or unsatisfactory. Comments included good fun, friendly, practical, attentive, interactive, informative, creative, valuable, professional, high quality, inspiring, better than most, brilliant and relevant - an altogether happy group of council workers - it was my pleasure

    Feedback from Managing Stress training

    Just wanted to take a moment to thank you once again for the Stress Management course you ran a while ago. Not only did I think it was a superb course at the time, I have recently been going back over my handouts and notes and it has been really helpful. I will ensure I recommend you and your courses to others.

    Was great to refresh on the areas I am familiar with but so useful to learn of extra capabilities and tools that I will definitely find useful.

    Regarding any improvements - No suggestions. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, Sally, you are so comfortable and relaxed yet very professional and really like the way to teach, thank you - Jane (December 2020 - online training)
