Your BOP videos were the best thing I have ever invested in. The advice given to me after watching the videos and being able to talk to Peter, one of your BOP team was so valuable before my big presentation, which went down a treat. Many thanks

His corporate training work started 15 years ago with Sainsbury's, and has developed to include a wide range of industries with a need to improve communication skills; he is currently the lead Communication Skills trainer for ASDA.
