    At Short Notice

    Thanks for all your efforts with the ACSF workshops for the taxi industry. Your flexible approach to the project and your ability to develop and deliver the workshops at short notice was really appreciated. The workshop learning environment was positive and supportive. The workshop provided a useful overview of the ACSF. Activities involved in determining ACSF levels helped to develop the concept of the progression of skill levels. Thanks again for the work you have done.

    The workshop was lots of fun (I mean work) and very worthwhile.

Your wealth of knowledge and innovative ideas to implement ACSF was well received as one year later we have actively embedded the ACSF into much of our processes across our entities – we recognised the value to our staff and clients and we implemented it. Thanks again for your support and guidance.
