What they say about us...
"Raise Your Potential have just launched our High Potential Program in the UK to outstanding feedback from our delegates, their managers and the senior leadership team. This is a program that seeks to harness engagement from, and to develop the talent pool for future leaders of our business. The program delivered was bespoke to our requirements and sought to motivate and inspire the delegates as they embark on a year long development journey. It pushed many of them out of their comfort zone - and as a result of the coaching and feedback received during the program, they were able to recognise how important this was in order to challenge their mind sets and expand potential - they therefore embraced the exercise. I have no hesitation in recommending the service delivered by Raise Your Potential, and I very much look forward to inviting you back in as we continue to invest in our people at Pepper."
"Raise Your Potential ran two excellent courses for us on presenting with impact. Nichola was attentive and really got under the skin of the challenge. All the attendees felt energised after the sessions and were better equipped to fulfil their roles. I have no hesitation in recommending Raise Your Potential."
Having recently taken part in one of Nichola's Management Training courses I only have good things to say. Nichola provided an incredibly in depth and personalised view of a Line Manager's responsibilities and how to apply them to yourself even if you have little to no previous experience.
I have been working closely with Nichola for the last 2 years at Pepper UK and would recommend the “Raise your Potential” workshops to any business looking to improve company culture, staff retention and engagement. As the Learning and Development manager at PUK, we are always inundated with positive feedback on Nichola’s professionalism and innovative approach when facilitating the “RYP” workshops and one to one sessions with many members of staff throughout all levels within the business.
I have worked with Nichola on several of her courses and also on a one to one basis. I have always found Nichola to be very engaging ensuring that everybody feels included and comfortable with her delivery and their participation in the relevant course. On a personal 1-2-1 basis I felt that Nichola kept our discussions confidential and her support and coaching enabled me to reach the goals I had.
Nichola is a superb facilitator. Her instincts are super – she reads the room well, she reacts to the environment and most of all she allows people to achieve personal insights in a safe environment. Nichola has delivered C- Suite and Senior leadership workshops for us with excellent results and excellent feedback received on the sessions. We look forward to working with you again Nichola, as we continue to invest in our leadership development strategy in Pepper Ireland
Nichola recently assisted us with the development and facilitation of an executive away day focusing on developing and building a strong and agile exec team. Nichola was able to meet the brief of an interactive and thought provoking yet not overly exhausting day, she spent time developing a brief, presenting a proposed day and making the tweaks we requested as a business.
The magic that Nichola brings to the day lies in her blend of skills, knowledge and background. It meant she was able to read the room, respond and manage every person in the room meeting individual needs and the needs of the group without the fear of having to go off script. Everyone found Nichola not only knowledgeable and credible, but also warmed to her with all attendees commenting on how good she was after the session.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nichola to others in the future.
Nichola is an excellent trainer making every session fun and engaging, whilst also challenging me to step out of my comfort zone.
She’ll always reminds me to think 'why' I’m giving the presentation and really think about what I’m trying to get the audience to Think, Feel and then Do, which has been hugely valuable to me!
Our 1:1 training sessions have vastly improved my confidence, presentations and speech writing.
My teenage son has also been attending Nichola’s LAMDA group for the past 4+ years and has just achieved a Grade 6 (Bronze) in Public Speaking, which has greatly improved his confidence and articulation.
A huge thank you from both of us!
Nichola's ability to understand the people she's working with and find the best way to connect with them makes her a really effective communicator and mentor, even working with a cynical IT guy!
Over a series of sessions sponsored by a former employer, Nichola guided me though how to develop and then make good use of my emotional intelligence in (and out of) the workplace which really helped me understand the thoughts and actions of others and how to best respond to them effectively.
Having heard from other individuals that Nichola has worked with, all have had great things to say and I have seen her services taken up by colleagues that have moved to other businesses where the response to her input has also been very positive.
