Lemontree facilitate a range of soft skills courses for our company. The feedback we receive is always positive and delegates comment on how engaging and knowledgeable their facilitators are. Their courses really add value to our company and employees. I would recommend Helen’s training and coaching style to anyone who is looking for an engaging and effective trainer who will capture the imagination of their employees.
We have been using Lemontree to deliver our in-house personal development courses for several years now. The feedback we get from the delegates is consistently excellent. They have a confident and flexible approach and quickly build rapport with the group. This enables them to create a highly- effective learning culture, ensuring that development objectives are met in a fun and creative way. I would absolutely recommend Lemontree to any prospective customer who are looking for a company that makes a real impact and delivers great results.
The Lemontree facilitators were great in a bunch of different ways. Great listeners, asked great questions, knew when to probe and when to stay quiet, brilliant at guiding conversations and debate without being overly involved. Intelligent and personable. This would have been a waste of time without the right instructors.
In all honesty, prior to attending I had an expectation of what the day would be – from previous courses I have been on (externally) they can talk at you for long periods of time with powerpoint presentations and can sometimes be extremely tedious. I was very happy that this was not the case at all … the course was made to be fun, engaging and interactive.
Prior to the day, we had been individually spoken to about how we work, I found it extremely helpful how Helen and Ngozi were fully aware of our roles, our business and tailored the whole day to suit our needs and be able to adapt the information to our workplace. Often trainers can give you un-useful information which cannot be used in your business, therefore, I thought it was very good the knowledge they had of our working practices. We were given a lot of useful information that I have been able to put into practice and good theories we can use.
Helen is great to work with, she takes the time to understand what we want to achieve with our training and creates bespoke programmes that are creative, focused and engaging. Our people rate Helen’s style of delivery and I would highly recommend her.
Helen, thank you for your invaluable support in developing my leadership capabilities. Your professional and unintimidating style allows me to explore the plethora of issues I face in my role in a supportive environment. Your techniques, underpinned by your aptly applied knowledge and experience have helped me to have greater confidence in my role. I always feel energised after a coaching session with you – in fact can I book another one?!
The thing that caught me off-guard was that Helen asked us the best questions and the right questions. And the fact that Helen persisted in asking us the best, right questions. Overcoming our pat answers and prevarications, Helen took the team to a new place of understanding and functioning which would otherwise have been beyond us.
It’s always a pleasure to work with Helen. I have worked with her on one-to-one coaching and also in group sessions. She is enthusiastic, incredibly approachable, and really challenges us to think differently. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
