Over my several years as Chairman of the Training Committee of the West Mercia Magistrates Courts Service with responsibility for the quality and effectiveness of magistrates’ training, I observed Anita’s training skills with magistrates of varying ages, backgrounds and experience. She demonstrated an ability to communicate complex matters in a clear and concise manner without unnecessary jargon. I have always found her reliable, resourceful, enthusiastic and utterly dependable.

At the end of the workshop I felt that participants had a good, clear understanding of this area of work and they felt empowered to put into practice. Indeed at the recent Disciplinary and Appeal Hearings the trained panel members referred back to their documentation from the training course and feedback from them has been that that they felt more confident to sit on the panels having had this training. Archery GB felt that workshop was good value and is looking to repeat this with further participants in 2013.

As a businessman I wanted to move forward, to maximise my personal presence and my business potential. The coaching sessions with Anita were challenging, enlightening and engaging. She has great intuition and a deep understanding of people. Anita’s insightful approach has enabled me to see things from new perspectives, to think differently and clear the blocks allowing me to make real progress towards achieving my business objectives.
Leon Davis-Johnson, Jeweller and Owner of Athello Jewellery Box
As a business professional, I can fully appreciate the challenges of delivering training on complicated and sometimes sensitive topics to an audience with differing attitudes and varying levels of experience and skills. The training sessions were a great success because they were done in a methodical way with a smattering of humour and professional confidence which was clearly derived from a deep knowledge of the subject areas and a real understanding of people and how they learn. This approach enabled the learning to be absorbed and successfully transferred and used in real life environments.

I love being coached by Anita! I feel as though I’m moving forward on a cushioned walkway towards my goals: I’m starting to really acknowledge my past triumphs and how achievable my dreams for the future can be and it’s down to Anita’s cool-headed focus, excellent listening, persistence and warm encouragement.

Elizabeth Lowe, Lawyer
Having taken on a new and challenging leadership role, the regular structured discussions with Anita gave me clarity of vision, enabling me to focus on the real issues and not be side tracked. Intelligent, honest and supportive, Anita enabled me to increase my self awareness and my confidence. This gave me the ability to deal effectively with difficult issues and competing priorities in a fast paced environment.
