‘This was an excellent session. A fresh perspective on familiar points, plus some new ideas and very helpful prioritisation from an interviewer’s point of view. Also very well delivered. Energetic and Highly motivating.’ JA
‘Outstanding. Gary’s energy + his process enabled a breakthrough – business rather than job’.
“…excellent… full of business and practical advice rooted in hard-nosed business experience. A great session.”
‘Hands-on advice, totally clear. I recognised that what I did up to now is completely wrong!’
‘I found out that personal profile will help to get a job, if it is organised in a right way – lead on achievement approach with exact numbers. It will show that you are serious about the area and role, plus what value you will bring to the employer. I look now at job, as investment for the company (employer) – you need to show that you are good bond to invest in.’
“I wanted to give you a quick update on my progress…….I was offered four interviews before Christmas and attended three from a wide range of sectors including London School of Economics for a corporate relations job, a property consultancy and a business mentoring role for a training organisation….

I was offered two. Sadly, I had to turn down the business mentoring role, I also decided against the property consultancy as it was a part-time job which they wanted to make into a full-time job to accommodate my requirements.

In February, I was offered an inward investment role at the City of London which I accepted…….. I am excited about this role as it is international, marketing and events focused and also involves lots of relationship building with their top 100 large businesses.

Your techniques really worked a treat and it was money very well spent…..Thank you again for your help – I’m happy to be a case study or a testimonial for you”. L Clarke

“Wanted to get in touch since I attended a consultation you gave in March.

I actually found your talk very interesting and inspirational. Whilst I always believed the right job would happen some day, the hints and tips you gave made me think twice when I went into my next interview.

I used them and also studied for 3 days preparing myself for the interview. I ended up getting the job as well as being offered another job from a previous company who had seen me, I didn’t get the original position with them but another one came up and they wanted me too.

Goes to show, (xxxxxxx) do count.

I did say I would keep you informed of my search so voila. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Best regards.”Lillia
