I felt enlightened by the end of the day and can now confidently explain what tax and N.I. are!
David Thomas is a brilliant instructor and I appreciate his varied knowledge base as both an ’employee’ vs freelancer
Brilliant course. Great delivery. Factual, straightforward but enjoyable. Left feeling much more informed and positive.
Really enjoyed meeting everyone and learning new things. Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to David whom I thought had a lovely manner, explained things well and was comfortable to allow others to share information – a nice atmosphere.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the last two days’ Skillset Induction…I am looking forward to put everything you said into practice in the future…
One of the best seminars I’ve been to. Quite empowering!
Excellent, useful and engaging. Packed with information.
The fact that the trainer has been a sole trader and gone through the process himself was great. He really knows his subject.
Excellent session run for us on setting up as a sole trader.
Yesterday was amazing, I really have learnt a lot. I’m so impressed with David’s teaching and holding the group.
Thank you for giving me such a brilliant insight in to the world beyond the BBC.
You did a really great job of creating a supportive, effective, meaningful learning experience for everyone. It’s not easy to do that, so I just wanted to say thank you for a great day!
Thanks for the workshop yesterday on freelance writing as a business – loved the work/life balance ideas.
David was fantastic, informal and incredibly knowledgeable! I learnt loads!
Immensely enjoyable. Hugely helpful. Very concise, simple understandable language, clear delivery style. Excellent day!
It was exactly the kind of neatly packed info I needed to reboost my career in its early stages.
I found myself hanging on every word.
David’s explanations of “Sole Trading” were put forth in a clear, concise and helpful way that I found invaluable ~ the handouts and access to material on the website, fantastic.
My head is still buzzing with the info. Your style of teaching makes the facts given easy to digest. I hear the tax return adverts on the radio and now smile to myself as I know I am so going to be ready.
Really enjoyable when I expected dull! David super engaging.
Wanted to thank you for all the information and advice during the course, some of the stuff I’ve learned I can implement super quickly and see rewards almost immediately.
Superb – hugely knowledgable and helpful.
Excellent course. Very helpful and inspiring!
Fantastic content, compact and to the point. Delivered wonderfully.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is a freelancer or looking to become a freelancer, it was a clear and comprehensive overview of the main issues and how to address them.
David is an accomplished trainer who is a joy to learn from. He is open to questions and comments but always keeps the course on track, covering a wealth of information during the day, presenting it in an entertaining, memorable and often humorous way.
Far and away the best course I’ve attended in 20+ years of my career. Thank you!
David was a brilliant and knowledgable trainer.
Probably the most enlightening course I been on. With David being one of the most able and empathetic trainers I’ve worked with.
Thanks for the video and for the session on Monday. I really enjoyed and found it very useful. Diolch.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Made interesting and fun!
Extremely practical, clear and timely advice pertinent to the situation. Book him again!
The session was full of good advice and helped me to regain my focus. It also gave me a chance to network with others who could give me the benefit of their experience. David’s delivery made what could be a dry, dreary subject interesting.
Very much enjoyed this course and excellent trainer.
Your style was so clear that I understood the financial side of business for the first time, and am now even feeling a little bit excited about the future!
I think this is, by a long way, the best workshop I have every been to. The facilitator was truly excellent.
The whole workshop was excellent – really thorough and detailed.
The session was really great and informative. The tutor made a topic which could’ve been boring really interesting to learn about. He was also very engaging and responded well to questions.
Very insightful and extremely helpful…I just wanted to thank you for all your help again.
The presentation and mood in the room was great. I’m definitely going to do another training course.
An invaluable course covering many useful topics. David delivered clearly and with humour and kept our interest throughout, thank you!
I got paid straight away with David’s invoice tips.
I really did enjoy and got a great deal out of your two sessions. You made both topics clear, specific and fun … It was your focus on the positivity of networking, that made me feel at ease … I attended Cannes [earlier] this year and there were a couple of times I wish I could have had a couple of key words from your session in my head!
I knew David’s course would be good but I didn’t realise how much I would enjoy it!
Thank you. You clearly know what you’re talking about!
Amazing and very insightful! Discovering your website has been great and it is a fantastic resource.
After taking your training day I now feel a lot more confident going into the industry as a freelancer.
You were a breathe of fresh air in something that I didn’t think could be interesting and fun to learn about!
I feel so much more organised and less intimidated now
Absolutely fantastic course run by an equally fantastic trainer. David made it fun to learn about business. Thank you so much.
That really was a very enjoyable and useful day. David was excellent. It’s so nice to have a tutor who’s on top of his schedule.
One of the best courses I have ever been on! Superb!!
Brilliant structure to the day. I enjoyed the interaction and the overall content.
