Highly tailored and customer oriented service which added value not just to our team but at an individual level. The thorough and professional approach made working with TOOJAYS a pleasure and I look forward to engaging their services again in the near future.
Thanks a lot for delivering such a great coaching. The sessions have been very informative and motivating to me. Content and pace of each training were perfectly planned and aligned to my personal needs and learning style. I already had the chance to use certain tips and tools you gave me in my own training sessions - it was a great success and very helpful to me. I really appreciated that I had the chance to ask so many questions and receive feedback from you how to solve the issues. Also discussing current 'real life' topics and training content and structuring with you was very helpful and a big support for me. All in all I enjoyed to work with you and feel very well equipped now for my future work as a trainer!

I just wanted to thank you for your expertise last week. Having now caught up with my SG and DM colleagues, it is clear the event added huge value to their learning around Leadership styles. I have also been most impressed in how it has taken forward their self awareness; they are really starting to understand MBTI and the benefit it can bring to them as individuals and as a team. Many thanks for organising the event so professionally.
Just a quick email to say a massive thank you for last week. Thank you so much to you and your team for delivering the event with enthusiasm, energy and professionalism. I look forward to working with you again.

Lee is an outstanding business partner to any organisation, completely flexible in his approach Lee supports and generates ideas that add value to development interventions and outcomes. Working with Lee on a variety of projects from a graduate development programme , team development day to developing a team's innovation and creativity, he facilitates with a relaxed approach, influencing each and every group with his credibility and his style of engagement.
I was part of the Kuehne + Nagel Management Trainee program when I met Lee and took part at one of his Training Courses (Self Awareness). The pre work Lee had done for this course was of very high standard and I knew exactly what to expect and what specific topics will be covered. On the course itself, I was pleasantly surprised by the way Lee conducted the training. His in depth knowledge became instantly clear and so he managed to build rapport with me and the group and got everyone engaged from the start. I valued his feedback very highly as it was always constructive, action based and he showed his passion through the feedback. I very much appreciated the time Lee took for further explanations or any questions any member of the group had. Particularly helpful was the feedback session after the event, in which Lee took the time to put together a detailed action plan for me to improve my abilities based on the observations he made throughout the 3 day course.
Back when launching my company, PowerPoint Solution, my product was ready to go, however, I didn’t have a client base, and this is where Lee provided real value in terms of the business side – understanding my target market and how to upscale sales – Lee was fantastic at providing the right training and platform to allow me to do what I do best and engage with as many clients as possible. The training was flexible and tailored to my circumstances, and Lee was incredibly fast and always on hand to respond to my queries. Furthermore, I have also benefitted from connecting with Lee’s impressive network of fellow professionals, which has provided a useful side benefit to the services TOOJAYS provides.
