|"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.

|"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."|

|"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."

|"I saw Alex last night at the HCCI Exec Board meeting.|
He said that for years he has been trying to get Jenny to do something for herself or accompany him to events but he couldn't convince her.
In the short time that has taken place since the workshop, jenny is asking to go along to different things. he said that on Tuesday they went to a HCCI event and he said he was really proud watching her take part.
Quite honestly, I think we have a star in the making.
Well done you!"

|"Changing Lifecourse Training & Coaching|
Gina is a very engaging speaker who communicates with passion, commitment and from the heart. The subject matter was extremely interesting and I would have loved to listen to her speak for much longer. I’m leaving the session feeling very positive and with several good ideas to put into action. Thank you!!!"

|"This is to thank you for the help that working with you has already given me. Over the thirty years or so I have spent in sales and sales management I have been exposed to every kind of measurement, evaluation, Psychometric testing, picking, prodding and being held up to the light. In all those years I have come to realise that nobody ever really listened.|
Since we began to work together you have helped and guided me towards a plan that I am sure will help me achieve the elusive goal of achieving more by doing less. Your focus on the big picture is such a refreshing change from the task-oriented attitudes to which I have been exposed to in the past.
By helping me to analyse my situation, goals and aspirations, then put them into a rational plan with clearly achievable stages, you have helped me to realise that all those goals are attainable. I look forward to proving you right and to working with you in the long term.
I will certainly be recommending you to everyone I know."
