Here are some the things our clients say about our courses and coaching

“Will Thomas delivered training in coaching (‘Coaching for Leadership’) to around 800 Fast Track teachers between 2004 and 2010. Fast Track teaching was the first accelerated leadership development programme in the world and was based on the blue chip company graduate scheme model (including a rigorous assessment centre at the beginning). Will also visited many teachers in their schools in the role of a Personal Leadership Tutor.

Will is without doubt one of the top trainers in the UK and indeed the world. His training consistently received outstanding evaluations and more than often all delegates rated the training as being outstanding. Not only that, but in retrospective research with programme participants, Will’s training was frequently identified as having had sustained and long-term impact.”

 Richard Churches FRSA, Principal Adviser for Research and Evidence Based Practice at CfBT Education Trust

“I attended a one day course with Will in London on coaching. I know it sounds cliche, but it genuinely was one of the best training days I have attended. He took his time to introduce the session, gave us sufficient time to work and explore ideas in small groups, and had some creative exercises for us to work on all together. I did the training well over a year ago and still remember what I got out of it. I went on to coach several student who found the experience very helpful, showing that the learning I got was practical and not just an interesting course. I highly recommend Will’s training sessions.”
