Some of our Clients

What our Clients have said…

Innovation is a strength of Helene!

Some twelve years ago we approached Helene to design an in-house Training Solution to completely change our operating system from a hierarchical top-down approach to an approach that pushes management to the edge. A culture within our organisation was born, where our employees and team leaders began to solve problems common to the construction industry, with limited top management input.

Through Helene’s specialised Training Programs our Team have been empowered to analyse the situations that they encounter on site and action the decisions that they make, within the design parameters unique to each site, without losing time waiting for top management approval.

As a result of the Training Courses developed, conducted and implemented by TrainingWorks we have seen an increase in productivity, quality of work and phenomenal improvement in human relations. Consequently, we have been able to virtually treble our work output. Employees have been able to advance at a far greater pace and have been given opportunities to lead Teams sooner than they would have under the previous top-down hierarchical system.

These results are applicable to all our regional operations irrespective of nationality, language or culture. Spring Water Engineering regularly operates in three Southern African Countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe – as well as many African countries from Mozambique, through to Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda and Kenya, where we work from time to time.

There is no doubt that Helene and TrainingWorks is the difference which has allowed us to improve and expand.

Mike Dooge, Managing Director Springwater Engineering Services (South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe)

Helene of TrainingWorks was engaged by Six Senses Laamu (Maldives), to conduct Leadership Training and Development with members of our Senior and Middle Management Teams as well as with selected Supervisors.

Helene provided thoroughly researched and innovatively designed training, using up to date learning materials and techniques, which were consistently aligned to our unique Brand, our specific operational requirements and our learner styles.

The Leadership Training was thought-provoking, workplace-relevant, interactive, team-based and fun. Participants were required to work individually, in learning partnerships, in both small and larger teams, all of which encouraged full involvement, clarification of understanding and learning assimilation.

Participant knowledge was assessed during the Training and at Training Course conclusion, both which contributed to the valuable Post-Training feedback which we received from Helene in her detailed Report.

Each participant was required to complete a Personal Performance Improvement Action Plan at the conclusion of each Training Workshop, to assist with workplace skills implementation going forward.

We have benefited from Helene’s Training and Development Services, which have added great value to our Management and Supervisory Teams, in the areas of knowledge, skill and attitude.

We would recommend Helene highly for any Leadership / Management or Teambuilding Training initiative within your organisation.

Thank you for your dynamism and enthusiasm during the teambuilding and coaching sessions.

And, thank you for being our training partner for the past 6 years.

Angel Chuah, Assistant Director of Learning and Development at Cheval Blanc Randheli Maldives
We received an amazing support from Helene to develop our leaders and future leaders at the Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives. We received super positive feedback from the participants.

Helene was able to guide the leaders, answer questions and give real-life examples pertaining to leadership and communications skills that we all use everyday. Her engaging and positive vibes are very much alive until now. The participants just cannot stop talking about her and what they have learned from her.

Thank you, Helene! We definitely look forward to having more collaborations with you!

Meggy Banda, Director of Talent and Culture at Mövenpick Resort Kuredhivaru Maldives
I cannot recommend Helene enough as a coaching mentee. Her innate ability to listen deeply and show genuine empathy creates a space that allows clients to explore their core thoughts and emotions. What I appreciate most about her coaching style is her willingness to follow the client’s energy wherever it may lead, with an open mind and deep curiosity. She creates a space of non-judgement where clients can feel comfortable opening up and exploring their inner blocks, which can be a challenging but ultimately transformative experience.

Working with Helene will be one of the best decisions you make. She will empower you to tackle any obstacle in your path and support you every step of the way.
