Steve is a rare and sought after creature; an organisational change-maker who sticks around for the change.

This is both  uncommon and refreshing. Maintaining momentum is so critical, and sondevelopment know how to embed new behaviours and keep them alive, long after the excitement of project launch. Recommended!

Steve’s sales coaching is still one stand out event for me.

It should be attended at all levels, fun day, great guy and top knowledge.

We engaged Steve to help support us with developing our key team’s knowledge in coaching, empowering their team, and ultimately increasing our income and skills!

Steve fully understood the brief has approached the sessions creatively and with a sense of purpose. He has listened, and been completely flexible.

At the heart of what he does, he has a strong desire for those he works with to be successful.

We would highly recommend Steve.

Steve’s recommendation was to use a professional sales training company and Mystery Shopping Experience.

Both recommendations were tailored specifically to our sales journey and desired KPIs.

We wanted to achieve at least 10% to 20% improvement in the established KPIs.

I would highly recommend Steve’s advice and experience for anyone that is looking to strengthen their team’s skills and achieve growth in their business.
