Great Course & Instructor

I am so glad I was able to take this course as I had to go onto the waiting list to do so. It was very interesting and discussed things you can easily take for granted. It also introduces you to things you may not have considered or get you to consider them from a different perspective. The instructor was knowledgeable as well as approachable. I highly recommend this course and instructor. Definitely worth taking if you are experiencing the restructure.

PREPARING FOR JOB INTERVIEWS

John is a fantastic coach, he knows all these tips on top of his fingers. The course was very good and I did not want it to end. All questions were answered which were great. Well done John!

Simple rules yet brilliant.

Amazing course, this opened my eyes to all my flaws at an interview. I'm now confident that following the information provided I'll be able to enjoy and sit and interview with confidence.

Very useful course.

I didn’t think I could learn much more because I have taken similar courses at college but I did learn new skills. John’s knowledge is vast in the field but how he applied the course to current Southwark information was very impressive and useful. He even managed to tailor the information/training and exercises to the attendees situation.
