Client Recommendations

 Mike Ormesher

Mike Ormesher - Director at Ottersbrook Design Consultants

If you want to move your business forward and inspire your team(s) then Canute and his colleagues (Bruce & Shanks) are the best in the business. Their techniques, strategy tools, expert planning and preparation are highly motivational as are their results. Most businesses that seek assistance are either in a rut or feel they are a complex bunch of people struggling to find the best route or results. Put your trust in Canute and his team they are my first point of call to facilitate and inspire. Its not always easy to do this as a leader without taking control and more than often, its best to leave it to others whilst you join the team. Fantastic service and you may wonder why you didn't do this before. I can't recommend them enough. Thanks team. Exceptional result from people that care.

Claudia O'Neill
Claudia O'Neill - Senior Development Manager at Grosvenor

Canute is a fantastic facilitator. It was an added bonus that he has a construction background and could relate to the topics being discussed. He is lively, enthusiastic and has some very creative ideas, which were refreshing to apply. I would recommend him for future workshops.

Canute has facilitated numerous events on behalf of Constructing Excellence Wales over the past 5 years 

The feedback we had from delegates at the workshop was that they hadn't had so much fun whilst working for a long time. Everyone was so enthusiastic and keen to contribute – and it lasted all day! Canute creates the perfect environment within which to get the best out of everyone.

Debbie Cheng
Debbie Cheng - Architecture, Urban Design, and Masterplanning

Canute was the facilitator for a programming workshop for a large project on a compressed timeline. Our 4 hour session became fun and interesting and Canute clearly has a passion for his work. 

It was an inspiration to see someone be able to make such a dry subject matter, as programming can be, into a session that was full of laughs but focused at the same time. 

Ultimately the goals for the session were achieved thanks to his guidance. It was very engaging, thank you for the experience Canute.

Canute organised, facilitated and reported on our one day 'Barriers to low/zero carbon' workshop in Cardiff. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and the feedback from the attendees has been uniformly positive. The workshop identified a series of activities which will help us achieve our goals, with volunteers to lead them and agreed timetables for delivery. 

I would be happy to recommend SMARTObjectives - you did a great job

Rachael Gregory
Rachael Gregory - Events Manager - Rachael Sarah

Canute was the workshop facilitator at two team building Away Days I organised for Sir Robert McAlpine's Quadrant 3 and American Express projects. Canute was recommended to me through another colleague who had used his services on other Sir Robert McAlpine Away Days. 

From first meeting with Canute you could see how passionate he was about his job and ensuring a company got the best results from his workshops. Personable and full of fun creative ideas he definitely knows his stuff when it comes to team building. He had an endless supply of workshop ideas and games to get a team motivated and working together which could all be easily tailored to suit your teams need and the chosen venue for the event. 

Whilst Canute's background is within construction he is easily able to adapt and ensure his workshops are tailored to suit individual clients needs of any industry. Lively, energetic, creative and extremely well organised I would recommend using SMARTObjectives for any team building event.
