‘A very informative course which I feel will be beneficial in the structuring of our own Appraisal System. Melanie was very receptive to our own comments and questions and was able to develop our thinking.’ Graham Sims, Sims Systems Ltd.

‘Well delivered course with lots of great ideas. I have much to do when I return to the office!’ Alex Miller We Are Creation.

‘I have taken so much away from this course, Thank you. I am feeling confident that what I am currently practicing at my company is good and on track. I have taken away lots of tips and new ideas including how to give praise/criticism and how to ask for feedback. Very engaging and informative trainer and excellent resource pack. Thanks Melanie!’ Rachael Raine, M247.
