“How Much More Colourful is Your Umbrella?” – Enhancing your Canopy of Choice
“The workshop was a great success! ‘How much more fun can you have with your umbrella?’ It was a pleasure to spend the time ‘with the family’ and to be able to continue to share details of our progress in a supportive, friendly and encouraging environment. I think SMP and TE have captured something quite ‘special’, dare I say ‘magical’, with this evolving group. It is a special, intimate and safe learning environment whose members have been carefully nurtured over time. Steve and Gail are actually ‘growing their own’ talent. The continued learning and growing confidence will serve as a springboard for all group members in the future.” Steve Engwell
As always Gail & Steve have responded to my needs and helped me decide on key action points. Focussing in on key areas of turning lessons learned to actual practical outcomes was most valuable. Nick von Behr, behroutcomes
The workshop was stimulating, educational and thought – provoking, with the most useful areas being the encouragement given, being able to share our individual experiences, and banishing our limiting beliefs to the ‘museum’! Steve Bridger, The Write Copy

A fabulous one day session – thank you. You gave me the chance to unravel my thoughts and ideas. The day helped me realise that I am on the right track and that it is OK not to have a “job”!

A stimulating day. Good mix of formal and informal discussion and training, with a friendly and supportive atmosphere. You are made to feel that the trainers care about you. Gerry Berkley
A great day which met all my expectations. Able to focus on the core area of activity within my portfolio. This workshop helps you move in the right direction with help from others. Nick von Behr, behr outcomes
An opportunity for self reflection and time for ME. The session is so “open” and trust is quickly established from the outset to help delegates feel comfortable and find great value in sharing personal emotions, fears and aspirations – we learn we are not alone.

Enjoyed the quality of discussion and interaction with the participants. Lucy Parker, Acer Communications Consulting
