"The training was full to the brim with information plus
lots of coaching practice and sessions between modules. Duncan
gave us all his experience and knowledge in a most generous way.
I was impressed by his professionalism and how he drew from so
many different approaches to a introduce a variety and breadth
to the training. Extremely good value for money and a very very
worthwhile way to spend my time."

"The trainings were life changing and inspiring and I got
excellent tools that I feel competent to use to go out and start
my own business. Duncan walks his talk, has integrity and is open
to learning more himself. He is an excellent teacher and fun to
be with. There was a good fow between the modules.They were easy
to follow and at the same time challenging."
"Very well structured. So much wisdom and experience clearly
conveyed. Excellent sense of humour made learning fund and easier
to understand. It will help in my role as a leader in our social
enterprise. Plus enormous benefits for my children – a mum
who will really listen! "

"The trainings were inspirational. I learnt a lot about
myself and how I operate and have developed new skills that I
can use as a coach and that will also be invaluable in my personal
life. Duncan was dynamic, understanding and presented information
in a variety of ways that kept everything interesting."
"To be a participant in this training really changed my
life. I feel much more confident in speaking to people and listening
to them. I definitely recommend this training to all teachers.
I now feel more confident to deal with parents, to set boundaries
when necessary and to improve the working situation in a team."

"It has been really supportive for my development as a coach
and as a person. The first module opened up a whole new world
of listening and being with clients and I shifted my from advice
giver to coach. The second gave me a strong structure to use and
the third was really exciting with lots of material and skills
to develop. I really appreciate the way that Duncan creates an
environment where you feel held by a safe structure while at the
same time you are given the space to go out of your comfort zone,
stretch, fall, transform and grow. Not only has the course made
me feel more competent as a coach, it has also enabled me to let
go of some old belief patterns – and I have even found a
"As a relatively experienced coach, who has also trained
coaches, I was a bit nervous of whether I might become bored.
In fact, I found the first module particularly connecting and
an excellent reminder of basics that I hadn’t paid attention
to. The other modules were also useful and I found Duncan’s
own models particularly useful. Duncan is very experienced in
coaching and has a natural style that invites confidence building.
He also has a naughty sense of fun!"

"The 3 modules flowed well from one to the other. There was
a combination of styles and involvements which suited all learning
styles. Duncan was very clear and adapted the pace and style to
suit the needs of the group. The training will be useful for me
personally as well as for coaching others. I will also be able
to use it in my current role."
