"I was totally engaged throughout Gina’s presentation. She not only gave out key messages for success in our work life but in our personal lives in general!"
Pat Wood, Eversley Enfield

"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.

"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

"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."
Neil Hesman, Director, Brentwood, Essex

"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

"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!"
Yvonne

"I thought I would send a short email to say how much I enjoyed the training at Wickford yesterday.? I myself have often facilitated our Skills to Foster course, for prospective foster carers and, more recently as required by the CA '04 , a raising awareness campaign. This entailed doing presentations to a number of partner agencies, as well as to staff members in our own Department. I mention this only to share that I have some little insight into the world of training and presentations.

I thought that your presentation was clear, informative and relevant. Having said that, it must also be mentioned that your pitch and clarity of voice were very good, as was your interaction with all participants.

I am also grateful for the handout on Attachment and the way you related this to the subject matter.

Thank you for a very professional afternoon."
Win Escallier , Senior Practitioner, Private Fostering, Basildon

"Since meeting Gina just over 2 years ago, I have come to realise what an important resource a life and executive coach is to a serial workaholic, which I have been for many years.

Gina has been at my side (metaphorically) throughout the last 2 and a half years as my life and executive coach and our relationship and her support has led to numerous life-changing experiences that, without Gina, I don't believe would have been possible.

Although I am considered to be a successful (some say high-flying) grown-up (I'm 36) and happily married, I have come to realize there are certain areas of my life that need a little (ok, maybe a lot) of attention. Relationships in my life, both personal and professional, have been challenging at times and Gina has worked with me to discover new and successful ways of approaching these challenges. Together we have identified potential new ways to behave and communicate with my team and my boss at work as well as with my parents and my husband.

Gina has been the enabler in helping me release more of my personal potential and she has taught me how to prepare for the future. In looking at the potential future in different ways, I have been able to identify new opportunities for personal and professional growth and I have had the most incredible journey.

Gina has been there at the moments in my life when I've needed the voice of reason and rational thought. She has shown me ways of dealing with life's roller-coasters by employing new strategies and new behaviours. I have developed courage and strengthened my self-confidence because of her support and guidance. She never tells me anything, she merely asks me searching questions which seem to push the right buttons and elicit responses which develop new strategies.

"I would highly recommend Gina. Her life story itself is inspirational, but her eloquence and delivery further engaged everyone. There was so much to consider after her presentation as an individual about our personal empowerment. I could relate to every aspect and felt really motivated to pass on those crucial messages to my staff and ensure that they in turn motivate our children to believe in themselves and be “winners!” An excellent session, thank you.
Annie Gaudencis Freezywater St George’s School Enfield
Very informative and indeed inspiring. It really helped me re-focus my role as a leader. Thank you!"
