"Rob creates the ideal conditions for exceptional thinking both because he is a widely respected master of Thinking Environment practice, and because as a person he lives and embodies the qualities and skills that help human beings think at their best. I trust him to move any group or individual definitively to their goals and to their best-ever performance, and profoundly to affect the life of each person in the process."
Nancy Kline, President, Time to Think
"Having recently attended an excellent presentation skills course run by Rob in partnership with Will Salt from Get Online Media, I now have a video clip that I can publish on my website, add to directory sites or even put on a digital business card. The whole day was a fantastic experience. Despite my initial apprehension at being videoed and critiqued, I gained a unique and fascinating insight into both, the things I currently do well and techniques I need to work on. Because we learned and reviewed as a group, it felt like a very safe and positive environment. The day revolved around a well thought out balance of practice and learning with the emphasis on having fun! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve their presentation skills and anyone who wants to reach out to clients in an innovative and exciting way."
Simon Hanson, Director, Hanson Contracts Ltd

Niri S. Patel, BNI Executive Director UK/National Director BNI India

This opportunity to examine your working styles, traits and habits objectively helps you to focus on the areas you can improve on and stop worrying about those that you can't. Ultimately working with Rob will help you to achieve more in less time."
Chris Beck, Cascade Water Systems
"Rob Brown brings a new dimension to managing staff and peer interfaces at the executive level. He led the application of some innovative structures to meetings to change the organisational impact. I saw real improvement in a management team getting the right issues on the table with the right information when Rob was engaged as a coach. He is effective across internal and vendor lines in creating consensus - or handling conflict when that is necessary and productive."
Steve Huntington, Vice President , US EPR Deployment, AREVA NP
"Rob is an extremely professional consultant who is dedicated to ensuring that his work is always of the highest possible standard that he is able to achieve. He is a very creative thinker who has the capacity to empower participants to make a real difference in their working environments. He is totally committed to addressing issues around diversity both proactively and by role modelling best practice through his facilitation skills. Above all, he makes learning a fun and pleasurable experience"
Hansa Patel-Kanwal OBE, Strategic Choices Limited
Working with Rob has been a really valuable and eye opening experience and has helped me to understand and bond with my colleagues in a way that I had not previously experienced. Sessions have been really enjoyable and useful - a rare combination."
Rob Sadler, Head of Operations, British Energy Direct Limited
"Rob Brown has delivered a number of courses to professionals in Norfolk and on all occasions the evaluation and feedback has been exemplary. Having commissioned Rob 's training and experienced it as a participant, it is clear that he is a premiership facilitator, achieving excellence in whatever he does. I recommend Rob Brown very highly"
Andy Mazzei, Training Lead Norfolk NHS Trust
"Thank you so much for the 2 days Boys Own Training you did for us in October. It was great to come into the group at the end of the second day and see the engagement and enthusiasm in the group. The participants have spoken so highly of the course both in terms of the content and your excellent facilitation skills.
It feels as if the course will act as a catalyst for staff to explore the wider issues of working with boys and young men across the county so we will be able to build up a skilled team of staff who will act as champions within their own organisations. I look forward to future opportunities to work together"
Wendy Hemsworth, Lancashire Teenage Pregnancy Strategy Co-ordinator
"We commission work from Rob as we can guarantee the work will be based on our learning needs as we identify them, thoroughly enjoyed by our participants and represent value for money. Few Trainers are able to offer a package that meets all these requirement's"
Helene Denness, Public Health Manager (Health and Education Partnerships) Ashfield & Mansfield Primary Care Trusts
With Rob's support I have become more confident in delivering presentations and in particular I feel more comfortable in using the technology which at times has felt as if it had a mind of its own. I have found Rob to be positive and encouraging whilst ensuring that I practiced the parts of public speaking that I found most challenging. It is my pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend him to you.
Rachel Clarke, Director, Moveability
Rob has become an integral part of my self development program. He has demonstrated to me many ways in which I can improve my time management as well as showing me ways I can be more assertive and manage conflict in a more positive way. I have seen substantial improvements in how I run my business and have no hesitation in recommending him to you.
