Brad Almond, Kia Motors

"Terry Williams is amazing, I have completed numerous personal training courses in NZ and AUS and I can say hand on heart that Terry is the most interesting and knowledgeable instructor I have had the pleasure of learning from. I would recommend his services to any of my professional colleagues." 

Rachel Olsen - OfficeMax Team Leader Training & Compliance

"The best leadership development course I've been on". 

Aaron Lees, Regional Manager Auckland North, Crombie Lockwood

"Fantastic, down to earth, and “real” approach to leadership training . I really felt like Terry was able to step into our world and provide real life examples that just made sense. One of the best sessions I’ve attended and highly recommend to any manager wanting to learn more about themselves and the people they manage".

Emma Dymond, Chief Accountant, Red Bull

I had the pleasure of attending a training session facilitated by Terry this week, and I have nothing but great things to say about it. Overall the session was really engaging, resulting in development and techniques that I can apply both in a work context and in everyday life. There was an excellent ratio of presentation by Terry and application of the content via tasks, resulting in open and thorough team discussions, and far greater understanding of the principles compared to if we were just talked at or given readings. Terry's openness and attitude made for a really positive and productive training session, and I am excited to participate in more of his presentations in the future. Highly recommend!

Gloriana Wilson, Risk Analyst, New Pplymouth District Council

"Terry conducted an informative, interactive, and engaging facilitation skills workshop. It offered valuable tools, tips, and resources for not just workshops but also work and life in general. The session's approach fostered a safe and collaborative environment that supported the learning. Whaiwhia te kete mātauranga! Fill the basket of knowledge!”
