JML Training Testimonial Housing Association- JML worked with us to create a bespoke training course based around diversity awareness and providing an excellent customer service. The course has been rolled out to all front line staff and we are now looking at running it for all back office staff as well. We have continually worked to develop the programme over the past 6 months and JML have taken into account that our needs are evolving. Using both our own training evaluation feedback and the feedback directly from JML, they have worked to develop the course as it is carried out.
Irene ran the courses very well and her training style engaged all staff. The biggest compliment I can give is that almost all staff who went into the course thinking it was just "another diversity course", came out having found it both beneficial and really enjoyable. T S
Thanks for your email, the staff really enjoyed the session. We thought Irene was excellent and it was a really practical and refreshing approach to the subject area. Kind regards, K E Managing Director
From Awareness to Action course March 2010 - I recently attended the above course provided for ----- & ------- on the 22nd March. C----- provide the Repairs service for T---- and we were invited to attend as a partnering exercise.
The course was delivered by Irene Clark, and I would just like to pass on my thanks for a well thought out course that was informative and very enjoyable. Irene has a very professional yet approachable training style and her knowledge of the subject was exceptional. I run a similar course for C----- and it was interesting to see the subject from a different perspective; Irene has a great sense of humour and made the whole day a great experience.
Please pass on my thanks to Irene, she is an excellent trainer and I look forward to meeting her again in the future. Kind regards V McC Customer Experience Manager
