CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“The training was so well received that we ran three further courses in the following year”

“We needed to develop a training program that enabled our workers to target and craft their stories to the specific mental health recovery needs of individuals, and to do so appropriately, powerfully but without imposing their own experience on vulnerable persons. Simon’s sensitivity and skill working with staff with often traumatic personal experiences was remarkable. The training was so well received that we ran three further courses in the following year and all returned consistently high approval and recommendation ratings. Simon delivered above more than we hoped and I would not hesitate to recommend his energy and insight to anyone looking to add or hone one of the most important interpersonal skills – storytelling.”

- Mike Janssen, Former General Manager, Mental Health Recovery, EACH

“A useful and powerful structure”

“Simon Oats is a master storyteller. We needed to empower our more junior people to create a movement within the front line teams of our business so we asked Simon to teach them how to create stories. Simon was a wonderful facilitator but the magic was his ability to help people break their stories down into the key component parts, build them back up into a useful and powerful structure and then deliver them with confidence. I would highly recommend Simon!” 

Daniel Murray, Senior Manager, IAG Foundation
