Testimonials

Emma Lewis, Business Performance Manager, Insite Technical Services

"The Leading Growth course has been so enlightening and taught me so much more than I anticipated both in work and personal life matters."

Lynda Hale, Tŷ Teulu

"I have always recommended this course from the very first overnight experiential. This was the most enjoyable course I have ever done (and I have done quite a lot!). My daughter and business partner undertook the course, we had another manager complete last year and another starting in the new year. I think every person within a leadership role should experience this course. It is like no other and the skills learned along, with personal growth, are just something not to be missed. It cannot fail to inspire any leader, it cannot fail to bring a smile to a stressful week and some strategies to help you through. I believe that this is one course that quite simply cannot fail".

Dennis O’Connor, Partnerships & Commercial Manager, Visit Pembrokeshire

"My desire and capability to learn is growing with each session. My thinking is being stretched, and I'm developing as a result of the content and shared experience with others"

Jo Juliff, Founder, Empower Wellbeing

"There is no doubt that without the ION course, Empower simply wouldn’t exist – you can’t get a better endorsement than that!"

Alex-Michelle Parr, Managing Director, Wolfestone Translation

"We were struggling to get over £2 million revenue as a company. What ION leadership gave me was the confidence to look at acquisitions, look at bringing in more staff, look at different services, and overall, in the first year of ION leadership we got to £2.1 million which was a massive achievement and now, 18 months later, the company is turning over £4 million. I wouldn't have been able to do it without ION leadership. I wouldn't have had the confidence".

Ashley Miles, Regional Manager, Miles Hire

"One of the best things I have done in my life. As in regards to bringing me out of my shell and actually giving me a sense of identity. I was a worker, then I became a Manager, and now I'm a Regional Manager. And who knows where I will end up in the future".

Aled Jones, Product Manager, Hospital Innovations

"A lot of what we have learnt I can take back to the business. Another person from the same business was on this course with me and it would be great for us both to sit down, reflect on what we have learnt and take that back into the business".

Sally Smith, Owner, Swansea Garage Storage

"I have learnt about both addressing needs and motivating people. About different leadership styles and when and how to use them. I have started to develop my coaching skills, and I have improved my communication skills. I have tweaked the culture of the business. I use aspects from the ION course on a daily basis".

Michelle Wright, Recruitment Services Director, Med-Co Europe

"I feel more confident in myself, both in my ability to put into practice some of the things I have learned on the course but also in my ability to talk to new people. I also feel more confident speaking to people I know already, because the ION leadership course taught us how important it is to change how we lead depending on the leadership style needed by others. This has benefited me both inside and outside of work, as I am now much more conscious of my own behaviour".

Shaun Welsh, Commercial Director, Trojan Construction Management

Though we had a great foundation and knowledge in construction, we knew little about business or running a company. The course enabled me to take a step back and view my business from the outside. Since starting the course, our company has seen a growth in turnover and profit, we have employed more staff and put into place better procedures which is making all of our lives a lot easier.
