Some Sample Success Stories
Won $657 Million Bid
"We used Seán's coaching and consultancy skills to help us win a long term, £0.5 billion public framework contract - one of our biggest frameworks. He showed a key part of the bid team how to apply some effective psychological and practical communication skills that they used to great effect in the client interviews. He was an engaging and committed individual who became an integral part of the bid team."
Craig Danby - Delivery Manager, nmcn
Highest Ever (7-Figure) Team Win
“Seán played a fundamental part is us securing our largest ever higher education project with a 7-figure fee. His easily accessible and applicable and sometimes very amusing insights into business psychology, as well as the practical communication skills he showed my team, helped us apply these crucial skills easily and effectively during the project winning interview.”
Neil Rose – Main Board Director, Broadway Malyan
$73,000 Earned In Just Two Weeks
"I sometimes struggled with public speaking, but then went on a course with Seán. Furthermore he gave me confidence in myself and was approachable and helpful when I had queries. And two weeks afterwards I undertook a presentation in front of a new client and won $73,000 of business from just that interview!"
Matt Giblin - Senior Quantity Surveyor, PMP Consultants Ltd
Won Top "Unwinnable" Promotion
"I'd lacked confidence at work for far too many years and, no matter what training or support I received, nothing has worked. I felt I couldn't change so opted to stay in the background. After working with Seán everything DID change like never before. I applied for a challenging international job that I didn't think I would get. But, applying his techniques not only helped me to gain the promotion AND a pay increase, but also a boost to my natural confidence. And this has helped me no end in my new role. A massive thank you to Seán!"
Kate Spicer - Talent Management Advisor, Arriva
Best Retail Sales Since
“You not only motivated and inspired our Business Advisers, you gave them the confidence and energy to perform successfully. Since then, we have experienced the best business sales in retail so far this year.”
Rhian Rees – Learning & Capability Development Manager, Vodafone
Transformed My & My Company's Brand
"Thanks to you Seán, both easyJet and I have benefited because of the way I and the company came across. You definitely gave me the confidence and belief in myself to deal with presenting to a large professional audience in a manner that was dynamic and brought to life a subject which is normally considered dreary!"
Pritesh Dattani - Head of Internal Audit, easyJet
Out Of The Ordinary Solutions
“Seán is passionate about helping people to excel, and helping them to achieve their potential. Some of his methods for how to push and encourage people to achieve are a little out of the ordinary – and all the better for it. If you want a run of the mill, tick the box ‘course’ then Seán may not be for you. If you want him to nudge someone outside of their comfort zone so that they can communicate confidently and more effectively, he’s your man!”
Barry Horgan – Training Manager, Petro-Canada
Fantastic and Innovative Solution
“Seán is a true inspiration! I was completely blown away with how he very quickly understood what I was trying to do when it came to my presentation needs, and came up with a fantastic, innovative and very creative solution and worked with me to shape it to my own style. He is expert at establishing your own personality traits and communications style and very quickly he knew me better than I knew myself! Without doubt, a first class operator, great communicator and fun to work with.”
Keith Gait - COO, NHS Direct
Became A Much Better Communicator!
“Working in the communications field, it is vital that you understand people in order to get the message across to them clearly and effectively. This was one major challenge I had before working with Seán. The coaching sessions have made me better aware. Thanks to this new skill, I can adjust my approach on my feet and gain the support of the people I am networking with and presenting to. As a direct result, I am now confident in networking and giving short speeches on the spot, reacting to unexpected incidences while networking or presenting, and I am a better communicator!”
Eman Al Awadhi – Group Communications Director, Kuwait Projects Co
Game-Changing Value and Comedy!
"Our delegates not only got so much practicable game-changing value from Seán's session, but they got stand-up comedy entertainment from him, too! He set the room alight with his interactive session. Not only was it full of fascinating practical and psychological techniques that we all learned from and are now putting into practice, but his audience interaction was sublime – both entertaining and energising. No wonder that the vast majority of those there rated him in their feedback as Excellent."
Ben Turner - Sales Director, Institute of Sales & Marketing Management
"I recommended Seán to a client of mine recently as he clearly lacked the confidence to put my training into action. In just six weeks, the transformation is remarkable. After one session with Seán and regular e-learning, he sounds much more confident, controlled and focused. And he has also received a number of high quality referrals in that time."
Andy Lopata - Europe’s Leading Networking Strategist
Successful Tackled Great Challenges
“Seán was as motivational as he was very, very funny and he left everyone feeling energised, entertained and even more personally and professionally confident to successfully tackle the great challenges ahead. Lots of my team said that, from now on, they wanted to conduct their professional interventions like Seán!”
Karen Powell – Learning & Development Director, Royal Mail
Remarkable! Churn Rate Has Halved and Profitability Has Improved
"Seán's Culture Boot Camp and all the very insightful and well researched work and supplementary material he produced has helped us transform the whole culture of our division - most profitably. It was a revelation to see how he worked with my team to help them discover the culture we truly wanted to have, as opposed to what they or others thought we should have.
"More than a year later, we're attracting even more of the right people who want to work for us, our churn rate has halved and our profitability has improved. This is because our cost base has reduced which has allowed the management more time to focus on growing the business. We're also attracting much greater number of clients who are a great fit for our business and who, like us, love our new working culture, and benefit as a result."
Nick Banks - Operations Director, nmcn
Really Outstanding Training
“The training course that Seán Brickell did for the Clifford Chance global PR group was superb. The training more than met its objectives, it really put us through our paces and, as well as learning a lot, we had great fun doing it. The team couldn't wait to tell me how good Seán was – and the formal evaluation backed this up too. He was extremely well prepared and used enormous energy in running the session. Our thanks for a really outstanding training event.”
Anne Groves, Global Head of Public Relations, Clifford Chance
