“We have been working with Darren and his team for around 18 months now within Hilton. The first year they were a training provider purely for the Category Department.

This training was the reason why Darren was then invited to one of our 2 day management events early 2017 and presented to the Senior Management for both our UK & Irish site. People were impressed with what they saw and more so impressed with Darren when he talks so passionately about sticky learning as we have had many training providers in over the years who were not able to keep the momentum going.

This is when we sat down and explained to MBM the challenges we had site wide and asked them to design a training programme that would be bespoke to our culture and our requirements.Only a short time after MBM were able to present to us with fresh behavioural masterclass development approach which was just what we were looking for. Training commenced in May of this year and so far has been a huge success, there’s work involved for both the learner and their manager surrounding the sticky learning but MBM have supported us all the way in achieving what we set out to achieve.”
