Managing Directer CDM Contractors Ltd
Our initial meetings with Gethin were very positive and we felt after reviewing we really wanted him on board with our company. He was very engaging, clear and precise with our staff and made them all feel at ease from Day One of his delivery.
Our staff have been very enthusiastic about working with Gethin as they felt his content and delivery was very down to earth and they could relate to his mind-set. He has an excellent approach, people skills and sense of humour”.
Gethin started programme with the “The art of communication” keynote. We then ran the 6 week training programme to two leadership teams. The strategies are now being rolled out across the company and Gethin is delivering 121 coaching sessions to myself and other senior managers.
I would highly recommend Gethin services.

After meeting with Gethin it was clear he ‘got us ‘ as a business and individuals. I could see the programme would not be off the shelf, but shaped for the team’s needs. Gethin’s professional background had clearly given him a good understanding of various teams’ dynamics and an understanding of the pressures I was experiencing.
Planned with the business in mind, at a time and place that best suited us. Which helped achieve successful outcomes for all. ‘Staying in touch ‘ by follow up emails promoting thought into action worked well.
The team are talking about the programme with each other and trying to implement positive change. Individuals are more positive in themselves and when supporting their colleagues. Individuals have a more positive approach when dealing with problems and the day to day pressures of their role.

Gethin grasped the organisation aims, the significance of the event and the audience very quickly. As such, we were able to discuss his ideas around appropriate content from very early in our communications. He was the first speaker of the evening and it was pitched at the perfect level for the audience and set the tone for the remainder of the event. The speakers following referred to Gethin’s speech as comparison points. His playful approach did not distract from the serious and thought provoking elements of Gethin’s story. It did, however, create a more relaxed and personable environment for the audience to fully understand Gethin’s transformation path.

To hear Gethin speak is to realise the incredible journey another human being takes through life that presents such difficulty and yet who shows the immense resilience to choose a different way of living.
Gethin spoke of where new seeds were able to be planted in his life and where they couldn’t be. In reference to his life in prison he said, “how can you plant seeds within contaminated soil?”. This powerful question has stayed with me as I ask this of myself and of all the work I deliver within the prison system.
Gethin illustrated so powerfully how seeds began to be planted by individual people who believed in him, by those who kept by his side and by those who didn’t waver in their knowing he had the strength to change and with this, Gethin’s resilience and courage began on his journey of change.
Gethin’s story speaks of what it truly is to be human and how the internal resilience comes to show its true strength within all the suffering and struggles that life presented to him.
