Gina Gardiner Associates - Testimonials in & around St John's Wood

"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

"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.

"Gina Gardiner had been highly recommended by one of my clients. She had found the sessions with her most helpful.

I had arrived at a point in my life where I thought "Is this it?", I felt sure there must be more to life than just "this".

I was working phenomenally long hours and having very little social life and could certainly not face another 15 ? 20 years more of the same. Also my life had been full of difficulties and upsets so I found I had become somewhat disillusioned with life.

That was till Gina came along. She has helped me turn my life around. I no longer work ridiculously long hours. I am no longer a slave to the job. I am so busy gallivanting with a wonderful new social life, meeting lots of new friends and discovering a whole new world out there I did not know existed. I have even taken the brave step of a new business venture and have secured my first property for rental.

What Gina helped me achieve is realizing I have options. She has shown me that the future can be rosy and achievable, and I can have a wonderful life NOW.

I have recommended her to a number of friends and clients who want the most out of life because they can all see the difference in me and want to break out of their own rut.

From a very, very grateful client."
T Hallet, Billericay

"Gina was a real inspiration. I’m going to put her picture on the wall to remind me not to moan – rather to get on and solve!!!"
Beverly Benson, Hadley Wood School Herts

"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 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

"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

"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!"
Maria Kemal, Highfield Primary School

"WOW!!! Gina is an amazing story teller and my kind of gal. Her talk and the way she presents it makes so much sense. We are all changed as a result of listening to her. Thank you!!!"
