“…Upfront Communications Training Was Nothing Short Of Amazing…The Highest Ratings…For Any Of Our External Providers”
“Judeth was recommended to me as an expert in her field and as a professional trainer, having worked with the University in previous years. The University contracted Upfront Communications to conduct training sessions with staff nationally.
The response to Judeth’s training was nothing short of amazing and she has set a record for achieving the highest ratings qualitatively and quantitatively for any of our external providers thus far. Judeth’s experience, combined with her skills and teaching abilities enabled staff to enjoy her sessions, acknowledge the value of training and apply the skills learnt immediately in the workplace.
On the administrative side, Judeth is an absolute pleasure to work with and maintains integrity by balancing her levels of contact to ensure they are meaningful, have purpose and provide insight into our continuing relationship.
I look forward to working with Judeth again and plan to include her in my strategic Learning and Development plan over the next few years.
