What do our clients say?

Barry and I worked together for the delivery of the third iteration of a bespoke Change Management training course to our employees. This course needed to be changed in format to an online Webex platform, instead of our usual classroom training, to adapt to the current remote working. (Read more…)
This involved multiple meetings with Barry to devise our updated approach and materials. The course was delivered over 2 days to our training audience, who all ranged in experience from different divisions across the Bank. Barry’s delivery over the 2 days was no less than fantastic. Despite remote working he managed to develop a rapport with all participants, keep their engagement, and kept the training relevant and insightful by sharing interesting examples and stories from his extensive experience. This was noted by participants who gained a lot of insight through these relevant examples, and allowed the group to hear about cross industry examples for comparison purposes. There was a huge amount of content to get through within the 2 days and Barry did an excellent job getting through all of it- which was not an easy task online. Barry had a good mix of getting into the heavy detail of the training, to lightening the mood, bringing some upbeat humour, and engaging with participants. All in all it was a very successful training course, of which the evaluations reflected. My sincere thanks to Barry for this.

The APMG Change Manager Foundation and Practitioner Training I attended at Expleo was excellent and as a result of the courses I am now more aware of the best processes and practices that I can use to become more effective as a Manager of Change. There is a good mix of theory and practical exercises which enables the participants to apply the theory to real life examples and encourages great conversation within the group which in turn adds great value to the training materials. The course facilitators, Liam Sherlock and Melanie Franklin were excellent. They kept the group on track to achieve success in the exams and I would highly recommend the course to anyone working in or interested in Change Management.

VHI has sent many members of our company to the APMG Change Management in an Agile Environment course. The content is excellent and is superbly delivered. All attendees are using the many tools and tips to help enable change initiatives. The Learning from the course is easy to use and the reference book supplied allows delegates to revisit content from time to time. The course is as relevant outside the technology area as it is within.

In addition VHI chose the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis as the standard for all our Business Analysts. By sending all our BA’s on the course we are able to have consistency in this area. We supplemented this with some tailored content also to help with a move to Business Driven Design and Expleo delivered this content too

Head of Change Delivery, VHI Healthcare
The FLOW course provided me with a new string to my bow, a greater understanding of the upstream factors in delivering success for our customers and the tools to allow both the identification and development of customer offerings that will allow innovation to flourish with good people and the right environment Flow is a great framework that focusses on the right things, visualizes everything and excites me to use and to continue to work with.

Matt Evans

Agile Coach Enterprise Solutions, Royal Bank of Scotland
Our company put 12 people through this APMG Certified Change Management training programme. The course was robust with exams and study time required. Whilst there is a considerable amount of time and commitment, the course is extremely rewarding in highlighting the need and benefits of Change Management both from a theoretical and practical perspective. (Read more…)Expleo were very flexible in terms of amending their usual 5 day in a row schedule with 12 weekly 4 hour slots and further weekly support as standard. This allowed the participants the opportunity the think about how the concepts introduced could be used in real life in work scenarios encountered during the following week. The trainer (Liam Sherlock) was extremely knowledgeable and was a great facilitator, knowing how to get a conversation on a topic flowing, when to interject etc. This is the reason we chose Expleo and this course – it was never going to be a tick the box exercise. In terms of value for money, the skills developed will easily outweigh the costs in a matter of weeks. The next challenge now is to take what we have learned and implement CM as a daily activity in the business – what Liam taught us along with tips and tricks will make this a lot easier.
