What people say

Just a quick note to say ‘thank you’ to Steven for carrying out the training yesterday. We have had some really good and positive feedback (even from those that maybe had more of a negative view at the start!). Everyone was coming in and still talking about it this morning - it has definitely given us a good start with where we want to be/go as a team.”


Leanne Chubb Interlube

Can I just say your 2 day Train the Trainer course was of great help in making having to deliver training in my workplace less daunting. Hopefully my training will be a good experience for the staff receiving the training too!!

I actually enjoyed delivering yesterday’s training (never thought that would happen)”

I thought I should take the time to give you some feedback on the Influencing course I recently attended.  It was probably one of the best couple of days I have spent in a classroom; the tutor was excellent at putting across what I thought would be a difficult subject and it left me with lots to think about on my return to work. Please pass on my thanks to the tutor, Steven, and I hope to have the pleasure of meeting him on future training.

I would recommend this course to anyone who asks.”

Andy Blain South West Water

I recently attended your company’s ‘Report Writing’ workshop in Plymouth. I found it very useful, meeting with all my expectations and would be happy to recommend the course to anyone.”

Paul Cunningham Master Yachting Services

I went on the course “Influencing and Negotiating Skills” run by Quaestus at Plymouth Aquarium on 14th and 15th January and I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed it and how interesting it was. I hope that others will benefit from it in future.”

Fiona Fox South West Water

I have just heard I have passed both units of the CMI course, a big thank you for the assistance you and your colleagues have provided. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the team.”

Excellent delivery by Steven. His approach and style really shattered my perception of training and encouraged me to learn. His style and delivery had a major impact and influence on my ability to digest information.”

Dhiren Katwa The Environment Agency

The tutor quickly established a friendly relaxed learning atmosphere which helped the learning on this course. I felt that I knew the tutor and other delegates for a long time after the first day even only having known them for a few hours. “

Adam Rousell South West Water

I thought the content was well paced and relevant. I liked that there was a mix of talk from Steven, participation from the group and practical exercises. “

Clare Pluck Met Office

Good quality teaching from knowledgeable tutor. Nice (as a student) that the teaching group was quite small. “

Tim Bartlet Crepe Cuisine

In my opinion this course has been the one of the best courses I have attended. I have learned some very good, practical and valuable techniques.”

Reith May Higher Kings Mill

This was one of the best Quaestus courses I have attended and would recommend it to other colleagues. The training and inter-company discussions were extremely valuable. “

Sean Moran UTC Aerospace Systems

The course was very good, Steve is an excellent tutor and I really left feeling empowered to make changes. “

Catherine Taylor Taylors Traditional Bakers

This course was just right. I think it was exactly what we were looking for as an introduction to project management skills. There was a really good balance of activities and discussion, so thank you. “

Jeni Pitkin The Environment Agency

The course presenter was engaging and kept the subject alive. The handouts are very helpful. Fundamentally the simple key messages were delivered in a very digestible way. “

Jason Kirkwood Mendip District Council

An excellent Report Writing workshop. I learnt that a short report takes longer to write than a long report. Also that shorter does not mean lacking in content, but just more concise. “

Chris Wills Goodrich

I found the course a fun and enjoyable experience, well worth attending. The understanding and knowledge of putting together and presenting a presentation will prove to be a valuable learning experience. “

Sam Keast South West Water

The course was well presented with an excellent course paperwork pack. It was a good mix of physical and mental stimulation! “

John Doyle Vospers

Everything was well organised, professional and clear. I enjoyed the day thoroughly! “

Callum Livingstone South West Water

The trainer was very good with explaining each topic and giving methods and encouraged us all in ways to be more assertive in the work place. It’s ok to say ‘ no’. You can be assertive in everyday life without being aggressive and there are methods to help you to achieve this.”

Jo-Ann McLoughlin Actavis

Steve was brilliant all the way through the course and kept everyone interested and informed, as well as entertained. Don’t be afraid to be more assertive ;-) .”

Benjamin Platt South West Water

The course was well prepared for. The content was great – exactly what I was looking for in terms of a Project Management course. There are lots of things that I have learnt that I can take away and implement in the workplace to improve how we do things.”

Sam Parsons The Environment Agency

Steven is an excellent tutor and the course exceeded my expectations. I certainly learnt how to delegate more effectively.”

Janine Hems Plymouth Community Homes

Thanks for the evaluation summary. We were very happy to work with you, Steven and your organisation.”
