Stig Abell Ex-Managing Editor : The Sun

Testimonials

What graduates say…

“Tanya’s advice is delivered in a clear, friendly manner. Once I implemented her methods I saw a considerable increase in the number of interviews I was called for. Job hunting and the inevitable rejections can really take their toll – Tanya keeps you going!”

Tom Bradley

 

“Tanya gives graduates relevant, up-to-the-minute and first hand advice that is far better than anything I received from my university’s career service.”

Claire Graham

 

“Tanya throws all that awful, dull career advice from schools and universities out of the window and starts anew on a level today’s young job seekers can empathise with. You feel as if Tanya genuinely cares – and knows what she is talking about.”

Jonathon White

 

“I can testify that I landed a great graduate job offer after taking a lot of Tanya’s advice!”

Michaela Drizhalova

 

“Tanya was great at relieving some of the ‘post-graduation blues’ I experienced after university. Instantly, I felt I wasn’t alone in my journey.”

Jess Hughes

 

And what parents say…

“Nearly 50 job applications later, my graduate son said ‘This isn’t working.’ He was either being rejected, or not hearing back. With Tanya’s advice, we changed tack. He applied for a graduate internship with an outsourcing company (salary £22,000) and got it. Tanya’s advice changes your thinking and puts you back control. Thank you Tanya!”

Testimonials

“The best thing about Matt is that he makes it feel like you’re creating these breakthroughs yourself. A true coach in that sense, he helps you to dig deep with just the lightest touch by asking the right questions. I was skeptical about professional coaching at first, to me it seemed like a selfish and indulgent thing to do, but Matt’s coaching hasn’t only helped me personally, it’s been absolutely instrumental to my success at work”

Vincent van de Wetering, Creative Director at MediaMonks
“Matt has had a profound impact on my life. [He gave] me tools and methodologies for improving well-being and focus in my personal and professional lives. I feel extraordinarily fortunate to have been able to work with him. I’d recommend Matt to anyone.”

Neil Young, Director of Communications M&C Saatchi PR
“What makes Matt unique amongst other trainers and coaching professionals is his deep knowledge of neuroscience and psychology coupled with his first-hand experience of the advertising and creative industries. This makes for a potent combination which really resonated with us.”

Gemma McCartney, Head of Talent Acquisition, EMEA at Cohn & Wolfe

Testimonials

“Despite all the many presentations I’ve made in the past, your insights into general technique and specific areas such as Q&A and visual aids were right on the button and although I hate to admit it, made the narrative just that bit more focussed.”

John Emerson

 

“Neil’s contribution was significant in achieving the growth goals of the company as well, in delivering the key messages of the cost benefit analysis of laparoscopic surgery versus open surgery to our various target audiences and creating a company wide understanding and commitment to effective communications.”
