"Sent to Yvonne after Women In Business Initial Workshop

Dear Madam, I wish to report a missing woman & I hold your organisation responsible. The present Mrs Armstrong was last seen on Wednesday 11Th February PM at an event hosted by your good selves!

She has been replaced by a woman, nah, a wonder woman, calling herself Jennifer, who is extremely bossy, making me produce a "business plan" for myself and setting out specific targets and goals for us both to achieve!

Indeed when I mentioned that my socks had not been ironed properly (I insist on them being ironed both sides) I was informed that "If I did not like it, I could do them myself!". This has had an unnerving effect on my work, making my clients notice that I appear to be more organised and efficient.

Jennifer, (for that is what I must call her now) says that she will also attend further events, without me!

I am outraged that this is a blatant waste of tax payers money and will upset the ole MCP viewpoint, next, she will be telling me to get my own dinner."
A.E. Armstrong, Major

"Gina's workshops on preparing young people for employment have given our students a thorough insight into the whole employment process from the perspective of an employer. What made the sessions so useful was the way in which Gina shared her experience of being on a number of interview panels as well as her research into recruitment at other organisations. Our Sixth Formers are now much better equipped not only to secure the all important first interview, but also to ensure that they make the most of their induction period in order to achieve promotion."
Michelle Sonahan, Deputy Head, Robert Clack School

"Gina was very inspirational. Her positive attitude has given me lots to think about. Thank you!!"
Helen Person De Bohun Enfield

"Very engaging with good use of straight forward illustrative techniques and stories which work in a pragmatic and proactive way. Clear concise style that was easy to follow and maintained interest throughout."
David Cohen, DMC Consulting Ltd., Colchester

"Essex Coalition of Disabled People - Train the Trainer, March 2010

We asked Gina Gardiner to deliver a training session to increase learner confidence as part of our Disability Equality Train the Trainer course. Summarizing her in-depth knowledge into a one day session was no mean feat, but through working together and identifying key aims Gina developed a concise course supported by useful handouts.

By exploring people management techniques and ways in which self-esteem can be developed, participants completed the day feeling increasingly positive about their training abilities, "the module instilled confidence and actually reinforced my belief that, with application, I can become a good trainer".

We were really pleased with the results of the session and we would definitely commission Gina again."
Clare Emmins, Train the Trainer Coordinator

"On behalf of all our team of parent support advisers, we would like to thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to attend our area meeting and also for the?inspirational and upliftting speech and presentation.
?
Thanks for being a wonderful, amazing woman and?special person, and your generosity in sharing your gift of knowledge with people from all walks of life. Keep up the good work!"
Vida

"Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed your Learning at Work session today. I can't believe how much I learnt in such a short space of time and how much I enjoyed it. Thank you also for the pack which is full of useful material. I have come away inspired and determined to put it all into practice.

TESTIMONIAL FROM SKILLS FOR YOU PROJECT
Gina Gardiner has been one of the key trainers/tutors on the Skills For You Project organised by CEM UK since May 2009.

This project is a 12 week soft skills employability training programme for the unemployed in the London Borough of Newham, to help them get back to work.

Gina's sessions are very practical, full of activities but with much fun as well, in a very relaxed and cordial atmosphere.

Gina has a very unique way of delivering her stuff and would leave you with much "food for thought". She would empower you with the skills not only for the job market but also for life in general. Gina would always do and go beyond that which expected of her. Gina's hand outs are precious and valuable materials you can always refer to.

As a result of Gina's training, a lot of our participants have gained their self worth and self confidence back, and most of them are doing well in their various places of work.

I have been greatly impressed by Gina's input into our project and she would continue to be one of our main trainers as long as we run this project."
ETIENNE OBLADO, PROJECT MANAGER, SKILLS FOR YOU

"Gina’s approach and style were excellent, engaging, informative, inspirational, entertaining and captivated our groups attention. Thank you for providing such an insiteful evening."
Jill Knight - Jill Knight HR Consulting Colchester

"It has been a pleasure working with Gina as part of the Confident Leaders Development Programme and as our main ILM tutor she has played a vital role in the success of the programme from start to finish.

Gina's vast experience, professionalism and excellent training methods in delivering our level 2 and level 3 ILM courses have been outstanding with very positive feedback from all learners that she guided to successful completion.? Her willingness and flexibility to adapt her delivery methods to the needs of the target group have been excellent in ensuring that the learners have been inspired with confidence to complete the programme and seek progression through further training opportunities.

A committed and reliable tutor, we would strongly consider using Gina's services again for any similar future training programmes."
Jahangir Khan, KETCO Training

"At the end of 2007, I was fortunate enough to meet a lady who has guided me through my fears and uncertainties. Previously when I thought about "the future" it was a scary prospect and somewhere I didn't want to think about. Being enabled to express my feelings openly has made me and makes the future something to be embraced rather than feared."
