Head of HR, Geraldine Baylis, said “We wanted to ensure all of our senior management had received high-quality management skills development and that this was aligned to our organisational needs, values and practices. Crisp worked with us to create a bespoke solution and we were able to meet with our Coach, Alan, as he created the programme, to ensure he understood our business and desired outcomes.

The result was 2 days of development that were truly valuable and bespoke to our company. Alan spent a lot of time ensuring that it was relevant and pitched at the right level. He had excellent experience, skills and composure to deal with any curved balls, and enough knowledge, gravitas and business acumen to gain the respect of all the team. It was great to see each member of the management team fully engaged in, and committed to, each aspect of the session. There was a great energy and openness amongst the team and he was really good at mixing the groups and keeping the energy up.”

“Crisp continue to deliver high quality online and face to face training, meeting our needs as we grow as a business and our staff develop. We are currently working with Crisp to develop a further bespoke programme for our supervisors.”


The course was well received by all the delegates on the course, with 100% saying they would recommend it to others.

Other feedback included:

“Alan did a great job, really enthusiastic and asked the right questions to get the most out of the group”

“Fantastic engagement, very useful and informative!”

“It’s given me lots of confidence and strategies to be able to support my team better in the future. The whole team mixed really well and I think it will have cemented relationships within different departments”
