Feedback from delegates of previous programmes with Jerry

“Sceptical of ‘finding time to think’ in a busy work environment, I was ‘encouraged’ to take time out to take part in some of the webinars and workshops offered by Hopkins & Ball, it wasn’t long before I was asking to take part in the Why-force. I can honestly say that making the time for these sessions has helped my journey into leadership and helped to balance my personal life. If you’re looking for guidance and support and sharing your experience with others, I encourage anyone to give it a go.”

Mandy Ball
Bray Group

“I recently attended the 6-week Why-Force programme, run by Jerry. Really useful course on how to think more effectively and using your time better to achieve your goals. I got a lot out of the sessions which have helped at work and at home, especially regarding thinking time and developing skills effectively. Looking forward to attending more courses and webinars in the future!”
