"I have personally known Jayne Hayward now for the last 3 years. I have not only worked with her as a partner, but I have attended many of the courses she runs as a delegate. All courses have been first class, they are very interactive and informative and Jayne’s teaching style is very engaging. She always underpins the learning by giving real life examples of the topic which helps you to gain good practical knowledge too. I never hesitate in recommending Jayne to any of my corporate customers looking for training and actively involve her in many training opportunities I have where I simply cannot deliver what my clients need. To sum Jayne up in 3 words – Professional / Knowledgeable / Engaging." Sharon Anderton - Director, GROUP Business Software (UK) Ltd
