After the training...

"Since returning to the office I ran a session with one of the project teams which went really well. I used the Belbin Circle exercise so that it became obvious where the gaps were, and we used the action plan to detail how we overcome this. Also, we looked at the balance between positive and negative observations which gave some really good insight into the impact people's behaviours were having on others. Since the first session was so successful I plan to hold another one with another project team in a couple of weeks time".

After the training...

"You have helped me enormously in looking at what our next steps need to be in [Company X].  You all have such passion for the product and the Belbin philosophy which is very apparent in your style, enthusiasm and delivery… That made such a difference."

Head of HR.

After the training...

"Thank you so much for an inspirational day yesterday - I am well and truly buzzing this morning. Practically on fire! As always after wonderful motivational events I have got through loads of work, which is great. You all glowed with the joy of great partnership working - thank you again for a brilliant day."


After the training...

"I just wanted to say – wow and thanks for such an amazing day.  I learnt much more than I had anticipated, not just about Belbin but about myself and how successful I can be not just as an individual but as an integral part of the L&D team both locally and globally."
