" Brilliant trainer, best course I’ve ever been on "


" This has been the best and most practical course I have ever been on. Instructor was very approachable, knowledgable & helpful and pushed me to do as well as possible. "


" Made a dull subject enjoyable! "


" Both trainers very helpful, welcoming and most of all, easy to talk to and get along with. Thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days here "


" I have been asking C&G to deliver training to our staff for the last 10 years. During that time they have supplied an extensive range of training courses. C&G have always provided professional, competent trainers who have developed good rapport with the staff. The booking of courses is flawless, and I have never been let down by this company. It has been a pleasure to work with C&G, their staff being polite and courteous. Their rates are competitive, and the quality of instruction is high. This led to our Training Department using C&G as the sole external training provider for much of our training needs. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who needs their staff trained. "
