|"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."|

|"Well done on your article '10 steps' !!? Your articles are always a breath of?fresh air.?
You showed me the key
Now I am free from self criticism, guilt and blame
I am free to discover, explore and be daring
To dis-reguard the protective suit I've been wearing
I am free to know truth and let go of a past ? which was uncaring
To dance and sing and enjoy this life which is for living
Once found this key can never be mislaid
This prized possession released me from shame
Unlocking the door giving access to the ZONE
The special place I can visit you which is HOME
I am free
To truly be who I want to be
To be ME "

|"I am writing to say thank you for the business coaching we have received so far. Even after 4 sessions we are already putting your plans into action, which we find very beneficial to the growth of our company. My business partner and I found ourselves only planning in the short term, rather than looking at the bigger picture. But with your sessions we can now see what direction we need to go.|
It has been a pleasure being coached by you, as you are very professional, friendly and you always make us feel at home.
We will be happy to recommend you to other business owners and will also continue to use your services in future."

|"I have never forgotton you and I hope you are doing well. I do the warrior, royal, (and tree), stances automatically now. It has now become innate. When I arrive at the office everyone knows about it. I talk to everyone and get on with almost everyone. I know almost everyone's name. I always greet the receptionists with a good morning and happy smile and they always say to me "Good morning Sam!" in reply. (And I always bid them farewell at the end of the day of course). I am so confident now and I know I can do anything, the only limit I have is the one I set in my mind; and so I have set no limits! |
I kept reading your General Principles For Developing Confidence, months after you gave it to us and it has been instrumental in helping me to abandon my previous negative mindset.
Thank you for everything Gina"
|"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."
