Clients and partners couldn’t be happier with the award-winning results delivered by my training:

“Donna’s masterclass gave me a fantastic insight into what it takes to win awards.

It made me look at entering awards differently and made me approach the process in a new way.

I found the training extremely useful as this is something that can be carried forward and used on a day-to-day basis.” 

Pauline Saunders, Head of Events, The Learning and Performance Institute

“Thank you so much for the awards training last year. With the confidence and learning points I took from the day, we have successfully submitted and been awarded the Patient Partnership Quality Mark (PPQM) from The Royal College of Chiropractors, for our clinics in Canary Wharf and London Bridge. It really feels fantastic to gain an award, so thank you again for everything.”

Hayley Foster, Operations Manager, The London Wellness Centre

“Absolutely invaluable advice with lots of short, snappy and actionable training and exercises. Fantastically organised.” 

Katie Bunting, OVO Energy, multiple award-winners of the ECCCSAs, UK National Contact Centre Awards and many more

We haven’t won an award since 2007 but in the last 5 months – we have won 5, including a really prestigious one from the City of London. So just wanted to say thank you – the course really helped switch the way we thought about entering these and the results speak for themselves!” 

Amy Walters, Business Manager, Bow Lane Dental Group

The awards training has been one of the most unique, informative, and inspiring days the team have ever completed. I was really impressed Donna at how you engaged and interacted with my team – you are a real inspiration and a lady bursting with personality. Keep up the amazing work!” 

Andrew Scott, CEO, Ascot Group and Business Leader Magazine

 “Our team were left feeling extremely invigorated by the training! 

It is crammed full of useful ideas, inspiration and practical skills. We would certainly recommend.” 

Verity Calderbank, Stockport Homes Group, multiple industry award-winners and overall winners of the British Chambers Awards

“Donna’s guidance and advice was invaluable when preparing our submission for a number of awards this year. She helped us to lay out the detail in a way that ensured judges could clearly see compelling evidence aligned to judging criteria, challenged our thinking and helped us to ensure that nothing was left to chance. Time spent with Donna is time very well invested!” 

Moyra Smith, Strategic Business Manager of multi-award winning Mercuri International
