"KBT have run a variety of highly successful training courses for us since 1993. The courses are always well organised, fun and informative. I am particularly impressed with the Accelerated Learning course. It has helped managers and other staff to work more effectively by improving reading speeds and by providing tips on improving memory, both
in the workplace and whilst attending academic courses."
(Val Cullen, Learning and Development Manager, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust)
"Kathey’s style is both informal and business like. She quickly tailors the shape of the course to meet the individual needs and abilities of the group so that nobody feels left behind but even the quickest learner remains challenged throughout."
(Anne Holden, MARS Team Leader, MOD)
"Just wanted to pass on my thanks, and the thanks of everyone else, for the excellent
Technical Report Writing course you gave yesterday. I very much enjoyed it myself and
I have heard nothing but positive comments since."
(Jeremy Bass, Senior Technical Analyst, Renewable Energy Systems Group)
"Kathey’s Professional Writing Skills training courses for managers in the Housing and Constituencies Directorate were very well received. The feedback from all of the courses was of a very high standard with delegates finding the course both relevant and pragmatic. Delegates found Kathey’s approach and personal feedback on their own writing styles excellent and the tips she gave them have been extremely helpful in assisting with their own personal ongoing development in this area."
(Andrea Burns, Training and Development Consultant, Birmingham City Council)
“Kathey is a totally dedicated and professional trainer and coach. I employed her services when working in Philips, LVMH and Shell and she trained groups of staff in Time Management, tailoring her approach according to the needs of her audience. She also coached senior members on a one to one basis, devising individually adapted programmes. Feedback on Kathey’s work from those trained or coached by her was always very positive. More importantly, her training had noticeable and long lasting results! Kathey continuously develops her approach and adapts her time management techniques to the latest technology available. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any client.”
(Michelle Nevers, Independent HR and Change Management Consultant,
formerly Global HR Manager with Philips Electronics and Shell)
"Kathey has made learning a positive experience in Sue Ryder with her friendly and approachable manner. She takes away the fear factor and creates an environment where learning is fun and memorable. Subsequent courses run by her have had a good uptake as staff have recommended the events. Staff report that they have learned new skills and put them to good use." (Sue Hope, Learning and Development Manager, Sue Ryder)
“Knights of Old have worked with Kathey on the design and delivery of bespoke training over two years. During this time she has trained at all levels of our management team and has achieved consistently strong feedback from those who have taken part.
Her unique training style has achieved positive results in our organisation and formed part
of our training programme which helped us to win the Training Award at the
Northamptonshire Excellence Awards.
I would recommend Kathey to other organisations in need of creative
and effective training.”
(Nick Bithell, Human Resources Manager, Knights of Old Group)
"I just wanted to say I got an immense amount out of the recent course you ran.
There were some absolute gems of information and thinking that I picked up. Thank you."
(Greg Ward, Snr Economic Growth Officer, South Northants Council)
"Kathey's assertive, yet sensitive approach inspires delegates to overcome the
'fear factor' of presenting, building confidence and professionalism. She has the ability to create an environment that makes the learning enjoyable, memorable and worthwhile."
(Mike Williamson, Learning and Development Manager, Northampton Borough Council)
