Testimonials

Here are some of our customer testimonials that we are proud to have received:

Presenting Virtually with Impact online programme

“This programme is great – I learned so much in just 6 hours.”

“Thank you for organising and providing such an impressive and helpful training!”

“Thank you Jen, can’t believe how much I learned in this session.”

“Thank you Jen! It was so engaging and great insights.”

IT Professionals, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Thank you for delivering a fabulous virtual training event for 70 senior leaders on Tuesday.  I really appreciate your energy, passion and expertise.  Love working with you.  Thank you.

Head of L&D, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Just wanted to say thank you very much for a truly brilliant and inspiring session last week.

As I mentioned to you at the end of the day, you were able to provide us with a set of tools that we could walk right out the door into a meeting and use.  Previous trainings I have been on at another firm have been so generic that it has been hard to apply and when asking the presenters for initial pointers to get us going, we have been met with blank looks.

You know, a bit like them telling us to bake a cake using a bit of flour and the odd egg but not giving us a basic recipe to use.  Your training gave us the know-how to bake a chocolate sponge, cheesecake or lemon meringue pie according to the situation thrown at us as well as the etiquette to host the whole tea party!

Senior Lawyer, Performance Management delegate, offshore Law Firm

I just wanted to let you know I ran my All Company session yesterday and used  a lot of what we covered in the training session.  I even changed my chair in the office so I could sit up right for ‘my Queen like pose!’ Although I was nervous I really enjoyed running the session, so I  wanted to thank you for helping me prepare for this.

Impactful Influencing delegate, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Many thanks for the support in running the Insights sessions. I’ve received great feedback from the team and I’m delighted we are starting to include bits of the Insights language in our day to day work. It was also a good test on delivering remote learning.

Senior Leader, Global Insurance Organisation

Went above and beyond expectations, and feel more confident in structuring presentations. It also made me very aware of the way in which I present from walking, body language, voice, speed…

Presenting with Impact delegate, Global Pharmaceutical Company

During the sessions with Julia I have understood very different powers of our mind that we are born with. I have realized that through our education at home/school/friends we seem to impose on our mind kind of glasses – and we are seeing the world & others through those lenses.

During the few sessions with Julia for the first time in my life I could consciously remove “my glasses” and tried the different lenses. Guess what – I discovered many new beautiful colors!

The most impressive experience was when I have realized for the first time in 50 – years that my mother has exactly the same communication style as me. I have never seen it before.

Corporate Coaching Client, Global Pharmaceutical Company

The leadership programme you ran last week was the best training I ever attended during my long career. Such a pleasant atmosphere, an inspiring trainer/participants with great topics that still resonate in my mind. I have already shared the main points and interesting ideas with my supervisor and have highly recommended this training for all team leaders around me.  Thank you again for a great training session and also for materials you have sent or recommended. I wish you many further successful educational events appreciated by participants like me.

Pharmacovigilance and Medical Information Manager, Europe, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Thanks a lot for plenty of positive energy that I got out of the session. It is impressive how it can be transferred 1000’s of miles away via Skype.

Corporate Coaching Client, Global Pharmaceutical Company

On of the best trainings that I’ve attended; highly recommended.

Impactful Influencing delegate, Global Pharmaceutical Company

The course was fantastic, with Julia giving examples and everyone being able to interact throughout the day. I would recommend for everyone to take this course for their personal development.

Impactful Influencing delegate, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Hi Julia – I wanted to follow up to say … there are times in our careers and life when we can call out particular events that have been extremely influential. For me attending your Impactful Influencing course is one of them. As an example (too many to mention them all!) I have really advanced promoting my personal brand. I just want to recognise and say “thank you” for being so authentic in your training style/delivering.

Senior Business Integrator, Global Pharmaceutical Company

The Insights Team Day gave us the chance to reflect on our strengths and weaknesses in a positive but realistic way. We left armed with practical tips, backed up by the theory behind them. I have no doubt that this will help us all with our individual/team goals and make for a more effective and harmonious team.

Fundraising and Communications Manager, Dreamflight

Insights provided us not only with an understanding of how we can better communicate with each other, but an opportunity to take a step back and reconnect as a team. So important in a busy small office! I’m really grateful to Insights and to Zestfor for the support they’ve provided to Dreamflight – and for a fun day too.

Director, Dreamflight

Julia is a powerful facilitator, she creates a safe environment with warmth and humour allowing people to see the strength of difference and how great communication provides a platform for performance and ease within a team. Thank you Julia for your knowledge and expertise – it was a fun, insightful day and I’ve definitely brought home new actions and perspectives.

Program Manager, Dreamflight

Thank you so much for such an interesting and constructive morning, myself and the team enjoyed the Insights training and found real value in this session.

Regional Sales Manager, Alcon

Thanks Julia for a great training experience – your genuine passion for every individual to unlock their true potential was very apparent and deserves to be recognised!

Senior Business Integrator, Global Pharmaceutical Company

Thank you for a great Insights day, the team really enjoyed it, found it useful and of course given us more tools to be even more high functioning.

Team Lead, Alcon

A big THANK YOU Julia for your work with our team at a crucial part in their change journey.

Your ability to be directive and instructional yet never disempowering (giving people helpful ideas about what they can actually DO to change), brought Insights to life in a way that I’ve not experienced before. You offered us much more than pure facilitation – role modelling ‘emotional engagement’ at its best!

It has, I am sure, helped a critical mass of people to step up, understand their behaviours, style, and take personal ownership of their destiny and impact.

I have high hopes that our agreed programme of workshops – provoking the LT to work differently…. followed by the rest of the department – will have very positive organisation-wide impact.

HR Project Manager, IT functional transformation programme
This programme is amazing, really felt like I knew everyone in my team in a much better way afterwards, made me feel more confident in myself at work and also in my personal life. The profile got me spot on and helped me to recognise areas that I didn’t realise I was well versed in and it also highlighted areas where I can make a change. Overall it is such an inspiring course and really makes you feel like no matter what is your top ‘colour’ you are essential to the function of the workplace.
IT Manager, Global Pharmaceutical Company
I just wanted to say thank you for today. Not only for the training and for enabling such a great team conversation, but also for being a mediator and saying things that both my colleague and I needed to hear to move towards a better working relationship. Given all the people you meet every day, I am impressed and appreciate the attention you can give to a single individual and their issues.
Associate Director, Elanco
Thank you Julia for doing a great job in engaging and facilitating the development of our managers. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to connect again in the future.
Senior Manager, HR/Operations, Global Pharmaceutical Company
One of the best training I have ever attended. Well-prepared (prior to the training you are supposed to take part in a test) and on-going throughout your whole life (you receive a small book on yourself and can use not only the information on yourself, but also the knowledge about other personalities/colours). The training helped me to understand the nature of my and other people’s behaviour in the work place and everyday life. I really enjoyed the way the training was conducted – interesting and well organised where participants were also involved! I found the training beneficial and the tips on how to communicate with my team colleagues are also good.
Operations Associate, XL Catlin
Julia has helped me greatly through my journey of life/career coaching. After initial meetings with three different coaches I decided to work with Julia based on her understanding of my situation, empathy, experience, interpersonal style, and positive attitude. My personal journey has been full of surprises for both of us; these have all been approached with objectivity, positive encouragement, and creative ideas. One critical success factor is that Julia has helped me make decisions on my journey without forcing her opinions on me.I have also learned that everyone needs a regular coach to support them throughout their entire career, not just the difficult times – I plan to continue to work with Julia in the future. I would definitely recommend her in this capacity.
Senior IT Manager, Global Pharmaceutical Company
I can highly recommend Julia Carter as a Career Coach and should the need arise, be thrilled at the opportunity at working together with her again. I first starting seeing Julia when I had reached a crossroads in my career and I wanted a change, but had no idea what this change was. We began a journey together where Julia facilitated my identification of what was important to me, my values, what I wanted to achieve in my career, my ideal job etc.

In conjunction with me having a very clear understanding of what my ideal job and working environment should look like, I was able to clearly identify what my areas of strength were and where I could utilise these skills. From this I was able to build a clear picture in my mind of what I wanted my next career to look like, as well as the type of organisation.

This greatly assisted in the job hunting process as I could focus and target the areas and careers which matched with what Julia and I had identified. I have now found a great career challenge, still using my skills and experience, but in a slightly different area. Julia was key throughout the process as she supported and facilitated this journey of self-discovery, enabling clarification of what the next steps in my career development should be.

N.T, Business Development Director, Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Services, Nuffield Health
I have known and collaborated with Julia Carter for a number of years, both in her role as a learning and development consultant, as program developer, and as trainer. It is a delight to work with Julia. She is highly professional, has expert knowledge, has a very customer oriented approach, is quick, flexible, and very impactful.

Just this year she has co-created an innovative, interactive series of web conferences, in which 500+ supervisors have participated, with highly positive feedback. I can recommend Julia as an excellent collaborator in the Learning and Development domain for globally oriented, Fortune 500 companies.
