Ian helped me overcome presentation nerves by identifying the problem area and teaching me techniques to control my anxiety. This is a working progress for me but in a very short period of time Ian's lessons were invaluable.
I am writing this to thank you for your time and effort and more than anything let you know that you have had and will have a profound effect on my future. - Rio Tinto Manager
Ian knows his subject, establishes positive relationships with the teams he works with and delivers interesting and motivating sessions. The sessions achieved the desired outcomes at excellent value.
Ian's delivery was exactly what we wanted; to encourage students towards the importance of community leadership that will land them that dream job.
Ian has been a wonderful Coach in my Leadership Journey. He has a wonderful style of engaging through discussion, simple yet powerful ideas of self-help and prodding towards self-realization without ever being judgmental.
Ian has been an integral mentor / coach working with my leadership team, he has helped to develop & grow a team of supervisors with diverse disciplines to work towards a common & 1 team approach. Ian has demonstrated a clear understanding of what is required to develop a leadership team & how to ensure participation & acceptance by individuals who may otherwise be resistant to change. Ian has a very approachable, friendly & professional manner which I have found to be a valuable asset when dealing with people & growing teams. Ian has a unique fortitude of encouraging people's participation through his knowledge & experience.
Training dollars are valuable, I invest them very wisely, I would also encourage you to invest them with Ian.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you Ian for coming out and facilitating four back to back workshops for us on "Letting go is the only way to hold on - simple steps to empower, innovate and make an impact without leaving your desk". Not only has the feedback from the 90 odd staff that attended been incredibly positive but the conversations that have developed from this session are extremely productive to our organisation and how we move forward into the future. I personally found your workshop very entertaining and informative and look forward to working together again
Candor Training contributed to our annual goal setting weekend in the role of coordinator. The staff related very well to his relaxed and engaging manner and got a lot out of his team building exercises and his involvement in developing their goals and the strategies to fulfill them. Candor Training also followed staff up after the event to keep them on track. I would certainly recommend Candor Training if you a looking for a professional trainer to help motivate your team and provide a sounding board for yourself in running the business.
I got more out of your 45 minute keynote than I did from a recent full day workshop.
All information provided was relevant and specific to the staff attending. It was one of the most valuable courses I have attended, I learnt lots of interesting facts that I will use in the workplace on a daily basis.
Ian brings an outstanding set of coaching and leadership development skills coupled with great professionalism to all of his work.
Having heard Ian speak before, I always go away taking new information with me. He has a great ability to tailor each presentation to his audience's needs and has such a depth of knowledge and experience that I always go away feeling confident and enthused!
I've worked with the same client's as Ian several times, either following his work, or leading into it. Every time Ian has impressed me with the results he has achieved in such short spaces of time, even in sometimes difficult organisations. Ian is one of those consultants that has great practical and easy to do strategies to offer that are in fact based on great science and solid research. he's a pretty good guy to hang out with too!
