The Working From Home during Covid-19 Zoom Session was great. Simple, short, focused, good tips and well communicated. Thankfully no suggestions of group hugs and closing your eyes and thinking of waterfalls etc.

Michael GilmartinRole Skillnet Training Network

We were delighted to welcome Moira to our team for a learning session which was absolutely outstanding and has continued to give value week on week since her visit. The team absolutely loved her session with us got so, so much from it and we are so appreciative of all those snippets of wisdom that she gave us.

I got back to the office yesterday after the 1 Day "How To Turn Busy into Productive" course and started applying your learning. I spent time at the weekend reviewing your notes and working on the actions that would make me most effective so I was really focussed when I got to my desk. I cannot tell you the difference the training has made. It’s like night and day.

Karen DevineWhiteLight Consulting

Moira, thanks so much for the course on Thursday! I got so much out of it! I've had the most productive day today and probably got more done today than I have in the past week by implementing some of your tips! Thanks so much again.
