I engaged with LTL to produce a programme of soft skills for a client in Saudi – LTL helped develop the courses to their needs, created a team of trainers able to deliver those courses to a high standard, developed and maintained a solid schedule of the courses to run through the length of the programme. They have also managed and administered all the visa’s flights and trainer’s diaries to allow a near perfect delivery of the project. So much so that the client has resigned for another year and we have also been introduced to 3 more clients in the region through our work and referrals of the delegates attending the LTL courses.”
Lightning Training worked precisely to the brief provided. Sheena added significant value based upon her own experience and expertise which she communicated very effectively to the course attendees. The feedback from those working with her was extremely positive and the work she did will feed directly back to benefit the business.
LTL provided two full days of training in the understanding and use of Microsoft Project. The quality of service was excellent. The training given was easy to understand and very informative. As a result all staff who attended the training are now regularly using MS Project for the benefit of the business.
Re-Boot Solutions Ltd engaged Lightning Training 18 months ago on a project for a nationwide training package for one of our blue chip clients during 2013.
The project was in support of the deployment of a desktop operating system and applications refresh across 2,500 desks, and across various sites the length and breadth of the UK. We successfully partnered with Lightning Training to meet and exceed the client’s requirements. From project inception through to execution and the post-delivery follow up, Lightning Training proved that we made the right choice.
Lightning provided trainers, floorwalkers, literature handouts and other services and did so despite ever moving goal posts from the client. I would have no hesitation in using Lightning again for other projects.
Their administration and trainers proved professional, were extremely flexible and always delivered what was asked from them – and more.
I can highly recommend the TTT course by Lightning Training to anyone who is thinking of becoming an MCT or just wants to improve their presentation skills in general. Sheena is a brilliant trainer who has the ability to turn every course into a fun learning experience.
Lightning Training provided a training course for us on site. My post training evaluation from all the candidates who attended the course said she was an exceptionally good trainer. She understood her subject, explained it well and kept the course interesting from start to finish. We will definitely be asking her to come back to do further training.
Sheena is conscientious in detail but can also deal with the strategic. She is open and honest to deal with and delivers what she promises.
Sheena is one of the best trainers we have used. For a two day course she packed the contents in very well and kept everybody’s attention despite a mixed level of existing skills. Very impressed with her knowledge base which is part trainer and part doing “real” work. We can totally recommend
Sheena is an example to all Freelance Trainers, and has set the benchmark for others to emulate. It was no surprise to see Sheena win the Freelance Trainer of the Year Award, and it was no surprise to see the unanimous support and recognition for her from her colleagues in the industry when the announcement was made. She is both popular and respected and I have no hesitation in recommending Sheena and her work
No-one was more delighted than I when I witnessed Sheena walking to the stage at the Dorchester to collect her well-deserved Freelance Trainer of the Year award at the IT Training Awards this year. She is a bubbly, bright and fun person who has been through so much but with her spirit it was obvious she would come out on top.
Sheena is an exemplar role model for freelance trainers. Her focus at all times is on quality and service and I have no hesitation in recommending her to any organisations who need first class, customer-focused, learner-centred training.
She is an extremely popular presenter for the IITT, having conducted numerous webinars for us, as well as a very high ranking workshop at our annual conference last year.
If I was to point those who are considering freelancing to follow a role model, Sheena would be one of the first I would choose.
Sheena was a worthy winner of the IITT Freelance Trainer of 2011. She is always professional, approachable, engaging and fun and is a great ambassador for the freelance IT Training profession.
In a world in which the workplace is changing so rapidly and the workforce is so inter-connected, Sheena is the “go to” person whenever there is a need to understand and resource a critical learning issue. From IT system deployment through performance and compliance, to business and personal skills, Sheena can deliver. Or, to be more accurate, if she can’t she knows someone who can!
In my work as a learning and performance consultant I get to work with and advise many individuals and Sheena, through Lightning Training, stands out as a vibrant, intelligent and focused professional. In my role as advisor to her, as she develops her business, it is clear she is forward thinking and innovative, and approaches all her clients with a real sense of professionalism and quality. It is therefore a pleasure to accompany her on her business development path and I have no hesitation in strongly recommending her to anyone (or business) that needs an effective learning and performance change partner.
I worked with Sheena for over 9months and found her approach to work refreshing and Energetic. Her project management skills and Training Methods are very dynamic and achieved results on the project we both worked on. I would very much recommend her for any training needs.
Sheena interpreted our training brief and provided a bespoke programme which matched perfectly the requirements of our organisation, within our budget and timelines. Would recommend to other organisations and would definitely contact Sheena in the future in respect of our training needs.
