In a multiple award winning global retailer life moves fast. Selecting, supplying and selling tens of thousands of products in over 550 airport stores worldwide needs exquisite communication and collaboration. Our work with WDFG has been all about this. All about the skills of partnering with internal and external groups, often under pressure, in a positive and productive way. We also work widely with the business boosting presentation impact and providing 1:1 performance coaching.
I've had the pleasure of personally attending two programmes that Will has run for us in-house: Building Relationship Versatility and Presenting with Presence. The content of both programmes was relevant, engaging and provided enough stretch for real learning to take place. Will has a thoughtful, relaxed facilitation style and creates an open, fun and trusting learning environment which enables delegates to 'let go' and get the most value from the experience and from working with colleagues.
Kirkstone is a go-to supplier for a variety of our facilitation and coaching needs, and as such Will and his colleagues have developed good insight and support to our challenges and culture. Despite having a good range of 'off the shelf' solutions available, Will's flexible approach means that we always get exactly what we need.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kirkstone.
At WDF we realise that engaging well with our stakeholders and customers gives the greatest results. The Supply Chain function is at the core of our business, and our success is reliant on our ability to optimise a smooth chain of events from supplier to shelf , ultimately to delight our customer.
Working with Will at Kirkstone to deliver the Positive Partnerships course for Supply Chain provided real insight into this and almost instant benefit (right from the moment the team left the training room!).
We were seeking an interactive course that delivered immediate benefit, was bespoke to our needs, and practical whilst both fun and compelling. Kirkstone understood our requirements and were fast, appropriate and comprehensive in responding to and interpreting our needs.
I believe the course has and will make a substantial difference to our team and wholly recommend Kirkstone for this genre of training.
