Let't talk about.....
Most people wear this badge of busyness with pride – although perhaps lately not so much…. How can it possibly be a good thing to be rushing from one thing to the next – from meeting to project to emails to home and as a constant buzzy backdrop our love of…..
Why everyone's a writer....
…but not everyone can write. It is easier than ever to publish your own writing whether that’s a blog, a white paper or an e-book, anyone can put themselves forward as an expert. Is this a good thing? I’m not so sure….

"I just wanted to say thank you for being such a staunch supporter of our project and the amazing work that you have been doing. I know that I’ve learnt a lot from you not least because you have been so generous with your time and with sharing your ideas and ways of doing things."
The follow-up coaching has been very helpful and quite an enlightening experience! I genuinely do feel that I have now some of the right tools to manage pressure point situations and I have become much calmer as a result. I have started to see some rewarding results both in my professional and personal life and I can honestly say this is one of the most worthwhile workshops I have attended.
The workshop was incredibly useful in highlighting my own behaviours and the follow up coaching has really helped me become aware of a number of aspects of my personality and work habits. It’s been an insightful and interesting journey from start to finish and the lessons will stay with me for life.
"The Advantage is different because it is not target driven or issues based - it is an holistic approach to soft skills training that can help individuals of all backgrounds and abilities. And it has helped affirm to me how to cope with the 'curve balls' in life."
I think it is really great that CMS offer these workshops and I took a lot from the day itself which had the right combination of active participation, group tasks and some thought provoking videos/examples.
Thank you Emma-Sue. Such a valuable couple of days and I feel so much more confident about what I can do, how to do it better and how I can go ‘offbook’ in the future. It was really fun and you are, by far and away, the best trainer I’ve had the pleasure of being trained by in a long time. I really admire how you worked with us. A real lesson in working with people, thank you.
Emma-Sue is very intuitive. Has excellent presentation skills. I find that participants including myself like to receive positive or learning feedback to assist in self-growth.
"Thank you for all your support and constant assistance. I really enjoyed the course with you,(the webinars, the face-to-face sessions and the assignments!) and believe me I've learnt a LOT from the course. I feel i am a completely different trainer now, very confident and well-equipped with the right techniques and skills."
