MEDIA REVIEWS
I have had the pleasure of working with Shirley in her role of consultant service provider as she delivered training but also acted as a business partner in developing and implementing different development and training solutions. Shirley is extremely skilled in her area of expertise but what makes her my ideal business partner is her outstanding responsiveness and ability to deliver fantastic results combined with her wonderful style and personality. She exudes a calm and confident demeanor and brings the highest of business relevancy in all that she does. Employees and managers attending her trainings always rated her with the highest of scores as she provided the right level of knowledge, motivation and challenge for her audience. -- Camilla Edberg, Head of Talent Management Global Services at Arrow
I have hired Shirley to support in the first important project of my career in DeAgostini, the communication and implementation of the new performance management process across all countries. This was a breakthrough project, aiming at not just deploying a process worldwide, but especially at creating a corporate culture, from scratch, by sharing common management approaches and values. Shirley was excellent in acting as a trustworthy sparring partner, her training and coaching sessions were appreciated and valued, from London to Tokyo, from Hamburg to Athens and so on in the Globe. Through her competent support, mixed to a very unique human touch, able to understand and value cultural differences, Shirley helped me build a global Company, a global Team and a shared Culture that is the one still in place at DeAgostini Publishing. Many of my colleagues still remember those moments with Shirley in the classrooms and this is a continuous confirmation, to me, of a successful experience. -- Lara Carrese, Global Human Resources Director, DeAgostini
Shirley was our in house Management and Core Trainer for 2013 at Top Right Group. She developed a great suite of programmes for our managers and staff. She delivered them with energy and passion across our offices in the UK and internationally. She is really able to connect with individuals, especially managers offering both empathy and challenge around their learning. Her love for developing others shines through and delegates feedback often included the word 'inspirational'. -- Alice Lewthwaite, Operations Director EMAP
I couldn't hold Shirley in any higher regard than I do now. Her assistance and support, development of my coaching/managerial skills and complete overhaul of my client presentation skills were second to none. I would wholly recommend Shirley for any business, even if they feel content with their current training/development schedule. We were, but now we are much better off. -- Michael Kirkham, Client Value & Retention Manager at Media Business Insight
In the name of the team here in Frankfurt, I would like to say a big thank you for the excellent presentation training you conducted here. The feedback from our team members is very positive - they say they really learnt a lot and liked your methodology. It was a pleasure working with you. -- Bjoern Weber - General Manager, Planet Retail GmbH
Thank you for all the things you share and for the way you conducted the training session. I think we all felt very comfortable although I can only speak for myself and I felt very empowered to put a lot of plans and techniques we discussed in action! -- Naomi, Retail Store Manager, Saint Laurent, London
A highly talented Consultant and Coach with the extraordinary ability to grab a Corporate Identity and successfully spread it over every levels of the organization. A warranted Return On Training. -- J-L Pagani, Financial Director Arrow Europe
I met Shirley in June 2012 when she was travelling in Asia to deliver Performance Management training. Shirley is a very inspiring and engaging trainer. I was impressed not only by her professionalism but also the passion and commitment she showed in her work. It was absolutely a pleasure and a great learning opportunity for myself to work with Shirley. -- Josephine Chen, Gucci HongKong
The main point I took was the notion of `team' - it encouraged me to think more about what type of relationship we wanted to build with businesses we've acquired vs our own local teams and how we should treat them very differently. That was the main part for me. Painfully simple but very useful. -- Katy, Events Manager i2i, Top Right Group, London
I attended several courses with Shirley over the year, and looked forward to each session she led, finding them very inspirational. Through a very personal and solution-orientated approach, Shirley has the ability to get the group to speak freely discussing their day to day challenges in the workplace. I left each session motivated equipped with a variety of management tools and strategies for work and everyday life. It was an absolute pleasure working with Shirley. -- Sabrina Urban, Service Manager at DeHavilland EU, 4C Foresight, Top Right Group
Thanks for a great two days. We unanimously loved it and left with useful and applicable insights for our future management. -- Sue, Cannes Lions Festival London
Shirley was brilliant at listening to what we needed, changing the course as necessary. It covered the conversations that we had to have and looked how we can manage the expectations, using structures to get what we need to out of the conversations. -- Simon, WGSN London
I found the training excellent! It highlighted areas within my working relationship with other members of our team. I will definitely recommend your format and cannot speak highly enough of your professional but personable approach to Management Training. -- Sue, Retail Manager, Saint Laurent, London
Shirley is an outstanding professional. She has been supporting my organization for many years delivering great results with training and coaching programs with a very good impact on both individuals and the organization. Shirley is great at helping people shift and can be very supportive in change management projects. Her integrity and ethic make Shirley a very accountable partner for important corporate projects. I'd just like to add that in global/international environment Shirley can really make the difference given her excellent capability to manage cultural diversity. -- Federica Filippino, Managing Director at Zeta Service Srl
Recently I had the privilege to attend a Management Training seminar directed by Shirley. It was an excellent classroom session, thanks to a combination of several characteristics such as teaching value, personal skills, capability to address theoretical concepts and at the same time deliver practical tools for everyday life. Shirley is able to stimulate the audience in the right way and the result for me was an extremely useful and pleasant 2-day full immersion. I recommend it to everyone who has any team management responsibility. -- Antonio Bianchi, Business Development Manager at Dimac RED
Shirley delivered a training programme to my management team to select, interview and attract Talent in our organization. Shirley did an excellent job, she is convincing, experienced, multi-cultural and has strong communications skills. My team gave a very positive feedback of her performance and I got a good ROI. I highly recommend Shirley to any leader or organization who wants to futher develop the performance of management teams. -- Rafael R. Salmi, PhD President & GM at Richardson RFPD
