Darren successfully delivered a bespoke team away day that matched the objectives I set him. He quickly harmonised the different levels of enthusiasm and personality of my team to ensure a positive dynamic and cohesive bond throughout the day. He was able to get the complete commitment and honesty from the team because he was able to project the fact he was actually ‘one of us’.
Passions were soon ignited and the team quickly realised their individual contribution was vital to shaping future strategic direction of the business unit. The content of the day was very relevant to our actual business environment and most importantly was fun. This created a platform post the course to focus on continued personal development objectives and the greater contribution of individuals towards the business unit’s strategic output.”
