Good practical discussions were encouraged at workshops, and good exchange of ideas and strategies. The content was well suited to our Civil management roles. It reinforces good processes for the workplace. Workshops are always high value/high gain- excellent sessions. Thanks.
Andrew Dunbar, Manager, Abigroup
“I believe both GTI staff and Ross Hicks have been very supportive and always available to assist, guide and advise when asked. I think the course was an accurate reflection on what I’ve been doing for the last 6 years and confirmed the policies and processes relation to the workforce/workplace were relevant. I would very much recommend the training to others as a method of formally recognizing what they already do and to qualify them for future employment at a higher level.”
