‘As the previous CEO of AIM SA and as a CEO of a large industry based membership/training organisation, I understand the potential value to organisations of quality training.

My experience tells me that organisations will achieve real value and real ‘take-way’ outcomes from training programs that are delivered by experienced, pragmatic ‘real-world’ Facilitators.

These Facilitators connect with participants and ensure that information is transferred in an interesting and informative way. The ‘teach today and implement tomorrow’ participant outcome is something only outstanding Facilitators can achieve. In my opinion, Brendan Hocking is one of these outstanding Facilitators.

I have had direct experience working with Brendan and through his thorough and meticulous upfront work with clients, he will always ensure that the desired training outcomes are achieved. From the first enquiry through to delivery and final review, clients can be guaranteed of a true partnership experience with Brendan. This partnership will lead to long term effective working relationships between both parties.

Clients want outcomes from their commitment to people development –Brendan Hocking will help your organisation achieve these.

If you are looking for a personable, experienced, client focused Facilitator who listens and actively works with clients to achieve real tangible outcomes, Brendan Hocking ticks all the boxes. It is with pleasure that I recommend him.’

John Stokes,

Having worked with Brendan over the past 5 years I have no hesitation in recommending him to small, medium & large organisations looking for customised, high quality training. Brendan offers a wide range of training topics with the flexibility to be customised to exactly what you need. His training approach is engaging and participants respond well to his interactive style. Working with Brendan from an administrative perspective has been great, he’s reliable and great to brainstorm training ideas with. Brendan was part of our Professional Development Program (pilot) last year and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with him on our program again this year. Brendan is a knowledgeable, quality trainer with a great personality who has the ability to adapt to his audience regardless of the industry or topic.

We have worked closely with Brendan over a number of years, utilising his training services for our different businesses.

I have also personally used Brendan as a sounding board for potential business ideas and training requirements.

I have always found Brendan to be thorough and comprehensive in the training he delivers. His ability to adapt programs and modules to our specific requirements is exceptional and he has always achieved a strong rapport with our staff as a result.

I would recommend Brendan’s training services to any business without hesitation.

I have known Brendan for many years – and seen first-hand the quality of his delivery. He gets people thinking about themselves – and their role in the bigger team picture.

His approach and knowledge make him able to relate to all levels – and all ages.

When you are onto something good – stick with it – which is why I have used Brendan at each of my last three companies.
