Steve Tucker, Bishop Fleming
"Having attended a recent Established Leaders Course I can highly recommend it to anyone thinking about leadership or involved already in a leadership situation. Sampson Armand are excellent communicators and with the use of their personal experiences they make the day challenging, entertaining and fun. No matter what your background or business the day will bring benefits for years to come." Phil Goodson, www.savingsunlimited.co.uk

"In the busy 'day-to-day' it can be easy to lose sight of overall strategic aims and get bogged down with routine stuff that deflects and distracts from working specifically towards larger goals. I engaged Sampson Armand to help focus my thinking and to be more effective in the implementation of Komodo's business strategy. Beginning with defining company values, the process worked through setting out an objective (mission), the creation of an action plan to achieve it, identifying and planning for key risks as well as a model for strategic talent management. I now have a much clearer vision of where we are headed and how to actually get there. The work was undertaken by Dave Hall who I have found to be extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He has a wealth of business and life experience which he can apply to situations and provides sound practical advice and tried and tested tools that he delivers in an easy to understand way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sampson Hall to other organisations that are looking for action focused input to help them to better define key strategic goals and creating an action plan to ensure that they are met."
