Introductory sessions

‘Alan made the day a 'roaring' success.  Our staff who attended the workshops all emerged smiling, motivated & eager to tell me how wonderful they thought the sessions were. Personally, I was hugely impressed with both Alan and Anne’s professional expertise & enthusiasm, but more than that, their passion for working with the 'not for profit sector’  Astrid Keogh - Training & Development Officer

Our Future Leader programme has been running from April 2005 as a major development programme for our up and coming senior managers.

Email Jun 2005
I just wanted to thank you for the brilliant service Charity days offers.  We were spoilt for choice - all the proposals we received were first class and it was difficult to choose the provider.
However, choose we did, deciding to ask help from Jacqueline Hill and Chris Allen.  They delivered a very professional training day that exceeded everyone’s expectations and excited all the participants, thus was very helpful to the organisation.
Thanks again.

Email from Charity : 
Hi Jane 

Great to see the success of Charity Days.  I would just like to add that all the staff greatly appreciated the training that we received from Peter Maple and it has already generated new ideas on how we can improve things and do our jobs better.  The service is excellent and we hope to make further use of it in the future to help with staff training.

Project Management
Team Building

 

1 day each Just to let you know that Jane Parslow came and delivered project management training for us last week and Lynn Suter delivered team building training yesterday.  Both were a great success and I've had very positive feedback from the delegates who attended.
We really appreciate being able to have the opportunity to access such experienced and knowledgeable trainers, an opportunity we would not be able to afford were it not for Charity Days.
Many thanks,
