“I found the course very interactive and there was a real open forum for discussion with clear ‘learning points’ throughout. The team felt energised from the session which enables us to come us with some realistic action points from the sessions. Fantastic course, what I found most impressive what how it felt like the session was being run by someone who really understood the organisation.”
Informative and very useful
“The training was a mixture of learning material, case studies and example activities .
I found this course very helpful for my day to day duties within my role, it gave me a better understanding of how to approach and deal with any such issues which may arise in the workplace and has given me the confidence to handle them efficiently.
Sarah Loates (the course trainer) gave us as a group opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and gave sound advice on the course topic.
I would certainly recommend Loates to others.
The training was brilliant
“The training was brilliant – took away a lot of information. Tell Sarah she scored 5 star all areas – polite, professional, knowledgeable and I wouldn’t change a thing
Full of insight and research
“If you’re going to get conned into a seminar on GDPR it might as well be one that is full of insight and research that you’d spend 100s of hours on yourself ! And then a bonus of spreadsheets and templates to make your life so much easier leading up to May !!”
Comprehensive and engaging
“We recently had the privilege of attending one of their training workshops on the subject preparing for GDPR. The workshop was incredibly well planned and delivered in a comprehensive and engaging manner, the workshop included the supply of valuable assets and documents for attendees to take away and use within their business. I have come away from this workshop feeling far more knowledgeable and prepared for the new GDPR legislation.”
Great delivery style and so knowledgeable
“You’ve got such a great delivery style Sarah and so knowledgeable that I think everyone should come on your courses! I am your number 1 fan 😊”

“Having worked with Sarah previously, I didn’t hesitate in contacting her when a requirement arose for some HR training. From our initial contact, Sarah picked up very quickly on what was required and went on to provide excellent training to the whole of our staff. She pitched the training perfectly and demonstrated her knowledge with aplomb when answering questions during the sessions. All feedback on Sarah’s training was very positive. Thank you Sarah!”
We all found the training valuable
“We all found the training valuable and it was delivered in a cheerful / professional way that made it interesting and not boring as some courses can be.”
All the staff involved gave glowing accounts
“During post-recession business expansion it was felt that senior managers would benefit from some training in leadership, time management, personal impact and self-awareness skills. Using Sarah’s HR experience and training abilities it was possible to combine this with a search for potential future directors. All the staff involved gave glowing accounts of the way Sarah has improved their management capabilities. Even the HR training doubters were won around! Output from the staff exercises and insights from Sarah have been combined with staff performance appraisals to identify directorial talent. We will not hesitate to use Sarah’s services again when we need them.”
“Sarah helped our senior staff with management and HR training. All feedback from staff was positive and I’m sure it wasn’t just because of the chocolate rewards used in some of the exercises! Her training and insight has aided us in targeting potential future Directors of the company and empowered other staff in their management roles.”
Fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style
“Deb have now used LoatesTraining to deliver 3 management coaching sessions, each of which has been very well received. Sarah has a fantastic interactive/inclusive teaching style which really gets the best out of the group and helps to underpin the core learning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend LoatesTraining to others, they are professional, and deliver effective, fun training sessions – a breath of fresh air.”
