I’m a very proud owner of Turner Corner Learning Solutions, which has been thriving since 2016. Since starting my training and coaching career 25 years ago, I have never wanted to do anything else. I get out of bed each morning with excitement about the day ahead. Why? Simply because I know my purpose is to help individuals at all levels, renew their passion for learning and develop the skills to achieve their potential. I absolutely know that each day will be rewarding.
I also work with a small number of hand-picked associates, all highly skilled at facilitating a supportive and empowering learning environment. It’s fantastic to work with such a great team.
A little more about me: I’ve enjoyed a very successful career in Training and Management roles across Financial Services, Retail and Utility sectors. Achievements have included ‘Welsh Contact Centre Trainer of the Year 2014’ and a finalist in the National Contact Centre awards for the most effective training programme. I’ve had the pleasure of designing and delivering training for very prestigious organisations such as Lloyds TSB, HSBC, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, Tesco, OrangeBox, Nisbets and many others
I use my wealth of experience of working within Customer Service environments to design bespoke courses which focus on the skills required by all levels of employees and managers in today’s climate, where customers, quite rightly, expect an effortless and exceptional level of service.
In addition to delivering memorable training programmes, I am also a qualified and experienced Coach. I use my skills to help embed the training delivery, in order to ensure a high return on investment for the Clients I work with.
The team of trainers at Turner Corner Learning Solutions, work across the UK, designing and delivering Customer Service & Coaching skills training. I also love to share my extensive knowledge and experience within L&D to develop individuals who aspire to work towards a Trainer role, through my engaging ‘Train the Trainer’ programme.
