Well loved by staff, she is an excellent organiser and trainer with great energy and presence as  I have personally witnessed in a number of her training sessions. She has a very hands-on approach and comes with a wealth of experience from her background in advertising to draw from and include in her work as a trainer and facilitator.” Marieke Mangnus, Training & Development Manager, EMEA Mediabrands

“From the day I first met Gwyn, three years ago, I have been impressed by her skill and professionalism as a trainer and her passion for the whole area of developing others.  It is clear that she enjoys helping others to develop and grow, she does this with great enthusiasm, which is transmitted to the learner. The feedback for classes that she has delivered at Weber Shandwick, at various levels, has all been unequivocally positive on all vectors. Gwyn’s knowledge of her subject matter and her ability to bring the topic to life with anecdotes and wisdom leaves everyone feeling they have grown in her presence. I recommend Gwyn highly.” Connie Phillips, Head of Learning and Development UK & Ireland, Weber Shandwick

I can whole-heartedly recommend that anyone looking for training give Gwyn a call to see what she can offer first. “ Cath Newland, 23red

She is absolutely determined to get you what you want, to make sure you are completely happy with what she is doing, and to follow up afterwards; you really feel that she has as much invested in the training as you do, and she works tirelessly on it.
