Return On Investment

Whilst there are various tools out there, many businesses choose the following:

  • comparison of before and after surveys on self-rated behaviours or culture
  • tracking employee retention, grievances, and absences
  • fewer serious disciplinary matters or dismissals
  • an overall litmus test of the firm’s culture and atmosphere

Simona came to our offices to train our management team on Transforming Meetings.

She immediately made the whole team feel comfortable, and as well as making the day fun and interesting, she encouraged us to go outside of our comfort zone and really explore our own thoughts and listen to those of the team.

We all came away having learnt a lot about ourselves, our team members and with great ideas to take forward into our business.

Amazing day and can’t wait for the next session!

Joanne Kerr, CTA, Senior Manager, Global Tax Network

As a Creative Agency, we’re all about the ideas and know how important it is for our whole team to feel confident and happy within a meeting environment so that they’re able to voice their creative thoughts and opinions without fear..

As a business we would wholeheartedly recommend Simona’s Transforming Meetings’ training..

The biggest surprise was just how visible the improvements were as the day progressed..watching people’s behaviours change. The skills we learned are very transferable .. outside of the meeting environment.
