As a leading academic and professional publisher, T & F’s staff rely heavily on their ability to influence busy external specialists and academics to get the job done well and, crucially, on time. Developing strong, fair and respectful relationships is key, as is a wide influencing repertoire. Our focus was to boost these and tune-up middle and senior management coaching to help support the new insights.
I've been working with Will from Kirkstone for the past four years and every course he has delivered for me receives excellent feedback from delegates. They enjoy them. They learn from them. And what’s more, they put what they have learnt to practical use in the workplace. Will takes the time to understand your business, the culture, the roles. It makes a difference. Delegates notice and appreciate it and the evaluations echo this. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Will to others.
Will understood the brief perfectly and met it and managed this group of challenging Directors in a creative industry particularly well. He demonstrated an understanding of our business and the roles within it. We've had similar positive feedback previously from other courses he has run for Taylor & Francis.
