“I was tasked to source leadership and management training for the senior leaders. Having reviewed a lot of providers, I opted for Commversant. Arron was a great listener and quickly understood our requirements. A key part of the process when working with a new supplier is building the relationship and Arron was very patient and supportive, especially of time constraints and funding placed on me to deliver the training.
The brief was to break down the existing silos and get our Senior Leadership Team which comprised of 20 senior managers to work together across corporate and clinical settings. I worked with Sarah who again quickly understood the brief. She provided an in-depth proposal of the types of things the SLT would go through, how this related to the Organisation and what I could expect to see as a result of the training. The training commenced and the initial feedback from the SLT was very encouraging. Sarah not only provided the training, but also support to the SLT which really helped them in their learning and how to utilise this in the workplace.
The training was a great success and plans were being made to provide similar training for our middle managers. Sarah designed the training around the Organisational strategic plan and aligned it to the Executive leadership development that was also being undertaken.
I cannot praise Arron and Sarah highly enough for their commitment to me as a HR professional, but also the organisations I have worked for. Arron is extremely thorough when it comes to the preparation work, planning and delivery of the courses. Sarah is extremely professional and super easy to work with. At any given time I have required training or support, Commversant have gone over and above. They do not just come in and provide the training, working with Commversant is about building a lasting relationship. One of Commversant’s great strengths is to understand your Organisation, really get the root problems and provide solutions that are easy to deliver and maintain.
Sarah and Arron work across many disciplines and their ability to listen and translate the Organisation’s requirements is extremely helpful, especially when working in busy, demanding environments. Sarah and Arron really do deliver the results they say they are going to do; nothing is too much trouble for their clients. Their training material is professional, easy to use and acts as a guide after the courses have been delivered. I have had many senior managers who still stay in touch with Sarah to ask for support and guidance and this is 18 months after the course was completed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Commversant for any training and development requirements, they are very professional, and an asset to any Organisational development strategy.”
