Advance have delivered high energy and engaging courses that have taught us a huge amount about the drivers of our beliefs, thoughts and behaviours. Through understanding each other better, we now work much more effectively as a team and are aligned behind a powerful goal.
A great big thank you for your efforts to enlighten us. I for one have had the most fascinating few days. What may turn out to be the most stimulating days of my life.
Advance training has produced a massive positive change in our staff and therefore our business. I suppose the bottom line is the net profit; the business has had 2 record years, and continues to grow and develop. The acquisitions we made have been successful for us and the values we have as a business and the way in which we approach our employees has helped with the integration of those businesses, because they had a different culture as well.
Since working with Advance Performance we have seen significant positive changes within the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Leaders have increased their confidence and capacity to lead teams and adapt quickly in a rapidly changing environment, and there is now a solid set of leadership skills embedded within the Trust. The creation of a strong leadership community is vital to increasing our operational effectiveness and being able to put compassionate care, safety and quality at the heart of everything we do.
I was unsure what to expect, but went along, with an open mind. I can honestly say this course was the best 3 days of training I have ever had, in my 22 year police career. I still use the skills I learnt, on a daily basis both within the workplace and on my two teenagers!
Advance Performance approached every session with real passion and has been able to tailor the communication for the audience in front of them. As a result, the feedback has been very positive. Staff have responded to the product to explore how it can work for them both personally and professionally. Advance has prides its self on ensuring the training sessions deliver the desired outcome for the delegate, organisation and as a result value for money.
The projects that I’ve worked on with Advance have had a very positive, measurable impact on the business culture of the companies I’ve been a part of; but the key for me personally, is that I’ve seen the behaviour and performance of individuals and teams positively transform in front of my eyes. If you choose to partner with Advance, you’ll find that they are in it for the long term; they build sustainable partnerships and go out of their way to ensure that they deliver value for money. It also really helps that the materials used by Advance are very practical and their infectious delivery style is utterly inspirational.
Thank you so much for the great session last week. The experience and insight into the world of crisis negotiation really made us think about how we influence and negotiate within our business and with our clients
We have been working with Advance for a number of years and really feel like they get ‘under the skin’ of our business, understanding what our business is all about and tailoring the work they do with us to suit our needs. Most recently Advance have inspired and engaged with our leadership team, resulting in our ability to achieve greater business performance and results.
Absolutely brilliant. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. You have inspired and motivated us. You have given us a clear application for how we can do things differently, better, and with greater confidence. You have done this for us as individuals, for us a team, for us a business and for us with our clients.
Two years ago, our entire Sales Team participated in a two day course organised by Advance. Over the next 24 months our turnover has more than doubled. Whilst some of this can be attributed to timing, luck and good products, or a multitude of factors, I firmly believe that a huge factor has been the increased motivation, performance and ability gained from participating in the course. I have just booked a follow on training session for the management team.
I’ve been in the role of Director of Operations for just over two years. In that time, I’ve passionately been driving change but…. “why do we need to do it” “ it won’t happen” “we’ve tried it before and it failed” have demanded resilience to keep upbeat. In that time, I’ve been desperately seeking an opportunity to draw a line in the sand and achieve a mind-set change in the leadership team to positive thinking. Last week that happened! The difference is already showing- thank you.
Our work with Advance Performance has had measurable positive implications on our business. It was enlightening and our people were inspired to achieve more and do even better.
"Heather is an engaging, motivating and charismatic speaker. She has a mesmerising quality that has you captured from the very beginning."
"Heather was very inspirational – I took most from this one and could have listened to her all day!"
"I thought Heather was a great presenter. She was really energetic & easy to listen to. Her presentation was also a different slant on what had been spoken about in the rest of the day but I liked how she’d listened to the earlier presentations and linked them back through. Her stories & examples were also really interesting and relatable. I would definitely attend another course that she was presenting at."
