Thank you for all your help with my company during a period where we have experienced tremendous changes. You have helped our whole team and we have grown from strength to strength; we are a more bonded, happier team and ready to set sail into whatever we may come across on our journey. Personally, I feel you have helped me grow and become a lot more self-assured both in my role and as an individual and this has, and will help me greatly in the future with our company. I wish you and your team every success with the fantastic work you do and I’m sure we will be using Pro-Development again in the future. I certainly would recommend you to others. Thank you for all your fantastic support and knowledge.

One of the best training courses I have attended. Clear, straightforward, but suitably detailed and all with an informed but informal style

A critical component of a successful business is a motivated workforce; taking your business to a higher level of performance requires staff that understand how to contribute to success. Michelle understands and connects with people instantly and brings a toolbox full of development skills which she applies with boundless enthusiasm to improve people's performance in the workplace. If you are lucky enough to work with Pro-Development your business will soon benefit from their contribution.

I recently attended the Pro-Development employee engagement workshop which gave me food for thought, as well as plenty of opportunities to get involved and bounce ideas around with the rest of the group. Michelle has a warm and engaging style, and clearly knows her stuff. Time well spent.
Karen Nixon, Director, The Partners Group, September 2012
Michelle recently delivered a workshop for us which I’m sure will be the first of many. Her diligent approach from our initial conversations, into design and development, then through to delivery, ensured that our learners received a session that was both engaging and informative. Her enthusiasm in the workshop environment was infectious and she dealt incredibly well with completely mixed abilities. She has a great gift of making complex subjects seem simple and everyone left the session uplifted and ready for action!
Dealing with Michelle was a pleasure from start to finish aided by her professional approach and ‘can do’ attitude. We are already looking forward to the next workshop.
Lou Mooney, NYCC Project Manager, Training Synergy, August 2012
As a company wanting to continue to succeed and grow, we invited Pro-Development to deliver some personal development training for our teams to help enhance their skills. While working with Michelle, we identified that a more holistic approach would help provide the outcomes we were looking for and Michelle helped us develop a plan which has already started to make a huge difference to how we operate. She spent time with our teams understanding what drives and motivates them and she has worked closely with my leadership team to unlock key opportunities. Michelle’s enthusiasm and approach had a really positive impact on the teams. She has addressed some of our internal challenges and has done so with honesty and integrity. I would recommend Pro-Development for anyone who is looking to grow their business and recognises that their people are the key.

Michelle is a highly professional and skilled coach/people development specialist who has successfully developed both teams and individuals during her employment with Aviva. Michelle is very personable and has very good engagement/influencing skills at all levels within an organisation. Her strong learning and development background enable her to provide an holistic approach to the development of people, ensuring learning is adapted for all styles and preferences and embedding/return of investment is identifiable. I am aware of a number of professionals who have acknowledged how Michelle's coaching and development has had a life changing impact for them. Michelle has won a National award for her training and development capability and I would have no hesitation in employing or using her skills in the future.
Beverley Stewart, Head of Professional Development, Aviva UK Life, June 2011
Michelle is a practical, enthusiastic professional with a passion for developing people both as individuals and as part of a team. She is naturally perceptive, sensitive and empathetic and can read the dynamics of a group. She is familiar with a variety of tools and techniques and, above all, is not afraid of the honest conversation, often avoided by managers.
Simon Alban, Head of Portfolio Management, Aviva UK Life, September 2010
