User Experience
‘The UX event challenged all our assumptions and provided an entirely new way of looking at user experience. Through a combination of engaging presentation and hands-on activity we were introduced to a range of techniques that we could immediately take and apply to gain insight into the perceptions, experiences and behaviours of our users. With staff from all areas of our service attending there was something of value for everyone to take away. Our staff said “it was different to anything I have attended”, “incredibly helpful, thought provoking”, “a good blend of theory and activity”, “I feel motivated to carry ideas forward”, “genuinely inspiring and useful”, “a super day”, ” Inspired!”. Phil Cheeseman, Head of Academic Services, Lancaster University Library

Wide-ranging and practical, both in terms of the activities and in the ways we were encouraged to think about leadership in our workplace. Hugely valuable. 

‘Really enjoyed today’s session. I found it valuable on both a personal and professional level. It was hard work and emotionally tough at times, but ultimately worth it! The teaching techniques employed made the session more memorable and relevant.’

‘Very informative with much food for thought. A good balance of exercises, mixing, interaction and listening.’

Social Media for Communication Managers
‘Fantastic balance of practical sessions and working through slides. I really liked the chance to practice live-tweeting in a safe environment, and the group tweet-editing and campaign challenges! Thanks so much!’

‘Great way to learn and instantly practice techniques. Best training course I have attended to date. Will be using everything I have learnt straight away.’

‘You covered an incredible range of topics I was interested in, complete with actual examples and an interesting mix of media as well as groupwork (that wasn’t humiliating!)’

‘I really liked getting concrete advice and recommendations instead of vague instructions.’

‘I have a lot more ideas on how to use twitter to reach strategic goals thanks to Andy’s clear and entertaining presentation style – thank you.’

Social Media for Start-Ups
‘Inspired to engage with social media’

‘Honestly, I wasn’t too sure about what to expect from the session and didn’t think that a whole day would be needed to train on Twitter and LinkedIn especially. But the training was really great, and perhaps not long enough! 

‘Information, fun, professional, engaging’

‘I really enjoyed the workshop and came away with much more confidence to engage in social media’

Teambuilding with LEGO Serious Play 
‘The LEGO-based training that Andy provided was a huge success for myself and the team. Everyone had a great time, even those who were initially sceptical! Andy won everyone over with his gentle, unobtrusive approach. The training was both fun and informative, and we learned more about each other, despite having known each other for some years. We will remember this training for many years to come, and can highly recommend it.

Strategic Thinking for Senior Managers with LEGO Serious Play
‘I must admit to some thoughts about grown people playing with LEGO but it was possibly one of the most stimulating and interesting training sessions I have been on.’
Bill Simmonett, Selwyn College, University of Cambridge

Teambuilding with LEGO Serious Play
‘I was surprised at how interesting and absorbing the session was. Thinking with LEGO is different from all other types of creative thinking and I highly recommend that other people try it. The perceived aim of improving understanding of other members of the team was definitely achieved through this unique medium. Thanks Andy!’
Phil Ashton, Sheffield Hallam University
