Hi Drew,

Everyone filled in the Training Evaluation Feedback Form for your session and all the feedback was great. Everyone said it was one of the best training courses they have been to. We have found the training templates extremely useful. They are very clear and easy to follow. Everyone has incorporated them into their recruitment process. Again thank you for the great training.

Lisa, Office Manager, Sydney

"Drew Clark, from Katie Roberts Career Consulting, presented a training course to our State and National Sales and Marketing Managers as well as Recruitment Officers, last week. The Training Course was extremely beneficial for all involved as Drew offered an enormous wealth of experience and his engaging and humorous presentation skills kept us all entertained. The course went for 3.5 hours – but flew along, as Drew covered everything from advertising, initial phone screening – interview process – negotiation of contracts through to the issuing of contracts. As well as having very structured components to the course, Drew allowed the opportunity for us to ask questions of him throughout. We were able to work through scenarios with Drew – as he led us toward answering our own questions, by his own keen ability to ask them!!! As an attendee myself – I gained an enormous amount from the training course. Drew is a very talented facilitator – and I would highly recommend his services to those who wish to refresh their recruitment skills."

"Drew conducted a half day workshop for our Managers and Supervisors which gave them a great refresher on behavioural based interviewing. Since then, we have used the templates provided to create our own forms and incorporated them into our recruitment process to ensure consistency and quality for all of our applicants. Feedback on the workshop was extremely positive and the team now have a consistent approach to the process. Thank you Drew!"

"My session with Drew yesterday exceeded my expectations. The session was informative, interactive and lots of fun. Drew is an exceptional trainer and it was a privilege to be able to work with him for 3+ hours. I have walked away from yesterday’s session with a bag full of new tools and skills. I would highly recommend the course to any HR professional or hiring manager."

Melissa G, Sydney

"Working with Katie Roberts Career Consulting was a pleasure from start to finish. The team was reliable and responsive to our needs, tailoring their training program to suit the needs of our Management Team. Drew’s workshop was right on target for us, sharpening our recruitment and interviewing skills, busting some age old myths about interviewing skills and questions, and giving us some great industry tips to make sure we were getting the best people outcomes from our recruiting processes, and setting ourselves up to gain helpful feedback when people choose to exit the organisation.

The workshop was fun, entertaining and most importantly practical – our Management feedback was very positive. As an add-on we were pleased to receive some process templates which will help to ensure our learnings aren’t forgotten in our practice moving forward! A big thank you to your whole team Katie – I have no hesitation in recommending your program to other organisations looking for exactly what you bring to the table!"
