We engaged HREI to design and deliver sales transformation programs for our contact centre staff at Gizmo. Most were fabulous at service orientated duties but struggled to meet their daily sales targets. The workshops had an almost immediate positive impact improving our contact centre team’s morale, productivity and revenue. Our sales grew within the first few days post training, and just kept growing! We achieved an overall uplift of over 500% across the contact centre team within 3 months of the workshops. We couldn’t be more delighted! Highly recommended.

Client Solutions Director, Korn Ferry

My coach is one of the most dedicated, empathetic and credible business professionals I have ever had the privilege to work with. She not only brings with her a wealth of knowledge and skills (she constantly keeps up to date with research), but she does all of this with humour and humility. I have recommended her to numerous friends and business colleagues who have all had the same experience with her. Vanessa is the real deal!

Tania Mathams
Client Solutions Director, Korn Ferry

I really enjoyed the “Power of Influencing” workshop. I am about to start a new role with a new company and feel that the course has provided me with some key tools to help me approach my position with new insight and awareness of different personalities in the workplace. With a clearer picture of the best ways to collaborate with team members, I’m looking forward to putting what I have learnt into to action.

My coach, coached me through some very difficult situations, helping me with conflict management, my leadership style and change management. My coach taught me a lot and she is a fantastically engaging speaker with great activities that really drive home the points she was making. She was incredibly supportive and I really valued her feedback both the good and the bad! Vanessa was a massive support, for which I always be very grateful!

The HR Experts International worked with us at a particularly challenging time – undergoing transformation from a start-up operation into a fully-fledged market leading business. We sought out leadership coaching for the team to rethink, fine-tune and grow from operational excellence into a high performance culture. They helped strengthen our HR processes, assisted us in restructuring the sales and operational teams and provided the management team with leadership development coaching that helped us grow professionally in line with our rapid businesses growth.
