"When I took over a new team I wanted to create a shared vision within an improved team environment and make better use of the team's time. Gina devised and facilitated a super 4 hour workshop which she delivered at my office in Canary Wharf. I met with her before the meeting and was able to explore not only the areas I felt were blocking progress and the potential issues facing the team. I found the discussion extremely useful in developing my role as the leader of the team and in planning the strategies to use with the team.

We worked as a team throughout the session. Everyone was successfully encouraged to take ownership of the issues and see themselves as part of the solution.

During the session we identified several things which were getting in the way of optimum team efficiency and which constantly drained our resources. Gina ensured that everyone had a voice and that there was a real sense of "team". Everyone felt valued and even the tricky issues were fully aired and dealt with in a positive and constructive way.

We developed, together as a cohesive unit, strategies and approaches that we were all willing and keen to adopt to improve our efficiency and effectiveness. The session was very practical but fun too. People were fully engaged in the process

All our thoughts and ideas were recorded in a very well executed, team-building environment. We left the session with priorities identified and a cohesive plan to move the agenda forward for ourselves and with other departments and with the Senior Management Team of the company.

Back at the desk, the team felt they had been offered a great opportunity to air their frustrations and share their ideas. They had been empowered to find their own solutions and resources that could be easily employed to produce better results.

The results of the session were lasting and far reaching. We had together created a way of making far better use of our individual and team time and manage the expectations of other departments.

It was a really worthwhile session which I recommend Gina to any manager who wants to build the department's sense of team or more efficient and effective use of the team's time.

"I would like tae this opportunity to thank you for the assistance that you have provided me with in recent months.

Through your coaching sessions you have helped me to not only maintain but strengthen my focus and resolve on both a professional and personal level. As you know, the year 2008 holds many exciting challenges for me and you have helped me to view those forthcoming challenges with a fresh perspective; the net result of this has been greater efficiency and a sense of no task is beyond me,

I look forward to continuing to work with you as I believe that we have only "scratched the surface" in terms of potential. I would strongly recommend that anyone with ambitions for the New Year, bid or small consult you for some coaching as the benefits are huge.

"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

"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!"

"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."
C Bloomfield Hornchurch

"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."

"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

"Before contacting Gina I was lacking direction & belief in myself. I never thought I'd come out of the other side so quickly. I am very thankful that I have Gina in my life. It was through working with her that I turned mine and my sons life around and have been living my life again from a place of strength, I've learnt to value myself again and it has helped me to discover who I am and what I want for me and my family.

I have learned so much from her and feel that she has inspired me to develop into who I was created to be. I thank God for her amazing talent in helping me tremendously and for that I am forever thankful.

Gina has had much valuable input into my life. I have learned so much from her and she has inspired me to develop into who I was created to be.

I thank God that Gina came into my life and made great things happen , I've made some pretty big changes! And, I'm feeling MUCH more confident and centered, how can you put a value on that? My family, friends and colleagues have noticed big changes in me. My life has turned completely around.

I thought it would take six months, maybe a year or even more and was surprised when Gina suggested I booked 10 sessions and she would refund me for any sessions that I did not use. After the first session I knew if anyone could use their magic on me it would be Gina, it was a magnificent start. She supported and encouraged me through her highly accurate listening and feedback skills. I found the sessions exciting, motivational and worth every penny.

I am on my way to a happier and healthier future, I highly recommend Gina to anyone ready to make some big changes, her insight and direction is so valuable - and you cannot help catching her enthusiasm for life."
