If you are looking for mentoring or guidance on public speaking then I cannot think of anybody better than Rosie. She is an experienced public speaker who has been a central part of Casterbridge Speakers (Toastmasters) for many years. Rosie has an intimate understanding of how to structure and deliver effective speeches, experience that she has brought to bear in her role as Vice President for Education. She has very much taken this role a step forward, to provide an educational programme that has brought real value to club members. Add to that her humorous speeches which are often quietly hilarious, and an unexpected delight. If you want to find out more about public speaking then I would very much recommend Rosie
Alex Picot, Chief Executive, Dorset Community Action
Fantastic session! Really helped to bring together thoughts from various sources I have encountered recently, especially some mindfulness texts I've been reading. Love how you're wielding those Zoom tools like a pro - popping in to breakout rooms, using polls etc - really great experience.
Oliver Hemson, Tony Benger Landscapes Ltd
"The way you present is so good and clear, as a result everyone gets a buzz from attending and it seems to me that having a group provides for perfect stimulation. It also helps give a lot more awareness as you see and hear other people’s responses to the same idea/question. It’s a joy that you make sure everyone has an equal participation.
Violet Lester, Office Administrator
“Rosie & Ken provided the most professional and successful training courses I have ever been involved with. The course was tailored to our specific company needs, allowing us to focus on only relevant material to our company. Our objectives for the training have been more than fulfilled and we are seeing it work back in the ‘office’ with a highly motivated and enthused management team. The results only go to prove that this was money well spent”
Rohaise Rose-Bristow, Director, The Torridon
"Best leadership course I have ever attended. I really liked the amount of practical exercises and feedback that helped own improvement and development of leadership skills"

“We have been working with Training for Results for many years now, the training is always welcomed by our team, always relevant and has really helped both myself and my team reach their potential.”
Marie Waterman, Centre Manager, Volunteer Centre Dorset
"Training for Results has delivered a myriad of development programmes for my team during my 6 years’ involvement with Dorset Cereals, at all levels of the organisation from senior management to supervisory. Without exception, their intervention made a positive impact on the business.
With the help of Ken and Rosie, my senior management team worked more effectively as a team, with increased confidence in their ability to adapt their individual styles to drive change through the business. Even the most cynical of line leaders came back to work with a real passion to change their approach and interactions with their colleagues!
Vickie Best, Former Operational Director, Dorset Cereals
"The Mind Your Head series inspired us to allow people to perform to their best. We learnt how we need to tap into the potential brain power and to be mindful not to over pressurise individuals and teams. The problem solving techniques clearly identified how important it is to define the real issue in the first instance. Key outcomes achieved have been greater self awareness, recognition of different approaches, and improved communication skills for engaging teams."
Ian Jolliffe, Former Operations Manager, Sunseeker International
“The (Judgement Index) assessment took no longer than 15 / 20 minutes . It was all done on-line – very straight forward, easy to navigate and complete. When the results came back I was really taken back. The amount of information about the person doing the assessment is quite staggering. It suggests some areas for development and looks at the balance of judgement in relation to people / relationships, work and tasks, self-esteem and confidence, self-concept and role satisfaction and self-image. In my opinion this tool will help to ensure that you have the right people in the right positions at the right time. ”
Malcolm Pitcher, MSP Business Services.
“I have used Training for Results for a number of years…… sessions are always lively and thought provoking and everyone leaves inspired to tackle issues in a more enthusiastic and positive manner.”
Huw Bowles, Former Chief Operating Officer, OMSCo.
“I cannot say how excellent this course, [Speaking as a Leader], was…..Ken and Rosie you are both truly inspiring! Everyone I know could benefit from this course”
Sally Saunders, Director, Atwell Martin Ltd
“Gave me some really good feedback on how to improve as a leader and made me think hard about the image I want to portray. I feel a lot more confident as a leader”
Neil Oxley, Delegate on Speaking as a Leader
“Really helpful 2 days. Thank you once again for an excellent workshop; and the fact that I coped with being videoed must say a lot for the atmosphere you created and the unobtrusive way in which the videoing was done.”
Rosie Ward, Delegate on High Impact Presentations
"After coaching sessions with Rosie, confidence in my own ability has grown immensely and I am therefore finding decision making a lot easier. Rosie's sympathetic, but direct approach, made it easy to see where the problems lay and how they could be rectified. It was a very positive experience for me from both work and personal perspectives."
