Training Testimonials


“I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the training that Dr Mann provided.  The course was excellent as was Caroline as presenter.  She is clearly an expert who can relate to non experts.  The Corporate Management Board is made up of myself, as Chief Executive, and four Strategic Managers.  All of us were very impressed with the training.  It provided a mix of high quality learning about emotional intelligence with practical examples related to our working environment.  Caroline showed a remarkable ability to apply the academic research and learning into issues from which we could all learn.  As a group we are not always the easiest audience to deal with, but Caroline managed to challenge us all in a positive way and the learning that we have had from her has been used to positive benefit in the workplace.

I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline to others as someone who is extremely knowledgeable about her area, but can equally relate it to a working environment”.
B. Marshall.  The Chief Executive of North Wiltshire District Council.

“The course exceeded my expectations.  It reinforced a number of issues for me but extended my learning.  Caroline’s style of presentation is first class.  Good communication, presentation and interventions.  A sense of humour as well!  It was a great day – could do with a few more like this”.
Strategic Manager for a public sector organisation.  Wiltshire.

“I found the course really stimulating!  It encouraged me to be even more confident and comfortable with myself.  It was excellent and I would like to learn more.  I was stretched by the interactive sessions and exercises”.

“Caroline had an excellent style – relaxed but purposeful.  I thoroughly enjoyed the three days – it is rare for me to be kept engaged on a topic so effectively for such a long time!”

“The training provided was excellent, covering a range of activities, helping us to reflect upon our strengths and areas of development on an individual and team approach.  Caroline has excellent interpersonal skills, subject knowledge and organisational skills.  It was an extremely worthwhile exercise which we all greatly benefited from and are looking to repeat in the near future”

“I found the course very interesting and challenging and enjoyable”.
Strategic Manager of a public sector organisation.  East Hampshire.

“Having attended one of Dr Mann’s courses on Meditation and Visualisation, I am more than convinced that this is the way forward especially in the learning environment.  Here at last is an opportunity for students to de-clutter, absorb relevant information and empower themselves towards success.  A future that no amount of fact cramming will ever achieve.

Dr Mann’s delivery of this course was articulate, highly informed and very encouraging.  She has researched her material rigorously, facilitating full and coherent responses to all questions, from the physiology of the brain to inspiration for visualisation.  The course was presented using a sound scientific basis fanning out to how the most effective practises are essential as a learning aid.  Providing each member of the course with a comprehensive workbook file marking out each aspect of the course, Dr Mann’s research was both explained and justified with impressive evidence.  Dr Mann herself is a very bright and reassuring presence with which to share such intimate space!”
Pam Gudgin.  Bacons College, London.

“The course on Friday was excellent.  As well as being based on current research the course was very practical and showed how new approaches could be used in the classroom.  Most of the content was new to the teachers present and I’m sure they found the course very useful.”

“It was excellent, very useful and very relevant to my and my school’s current needs.  This course should be made compulsory to all teachers.  Get the government to agree on its principles and implement in schools”.
