An eventful period from November 2014 to March 2016 found People Tree Training delivering a programme of training and coaching for over 90 managers to ignite a culture of coaching at Grand Union Housing Group. Their Corporate L & D assistant commented;

Sally, you are a miracle worker.  I would personally like to share my positive thoughts and praise about your abilities to adapt to so many situations and equip people with tools that they can implement immediately.  You truly are a one off.”

Sally Foan delivered three days of the programme, to raise levels of personal confidence and self-esteem.

“We are a small family run business established for 35 years in Northampton in the manufacturing sector. Sally Foan of People Tree Training conducted a programme of coaching two of our mangers both together and separately when it was felt we needed direction to help take our Company forward utilising staff of a long term nature and working to extract their potential. We found her to be unbiased in her dealings with us as Directors and our employees taking into consideration both our objectives and working with all of us to achieve our goals. She was adaptive to our needs and inspirational to our managers and she gave us valuable insight into reshaping our team enabling us to look at different methods and achievements for our Company.

Sally is extremely professional using a down to earth approach and appeared to be totally fair to all. She is also a very nice lady. Other members of her Company have been involved in our Training needs and found the personnel , information , help and training invaluable again being given in a sensitive, positive and professional way and helped us reshape our top management structure and showed us ways of enhancing our business requirements e.g. business plans and developments .”

During 2010 People Tree was working with CAN, a charitable organisation supporting  homeless people across Northamptonshire.

We developed a range of workshops for a core group of people who havebeen service users of CAN, who were to become the voice of homelessness in the county. This group will be involved with decision making professional bodies and help guide and steer funding to make a positive difference for the future. Sally Foan has also been invited to speak alongside Richard Lukehurst, of CAN, at their annual conference in December 2010.

“My role is ‘Client involvement Development worker’ for CAN/SP Northamptonshire – The projects aim is to promote empowerment and independence through effective involvement. I first met Sally Foan (People Tree Training) while looking for an organisation to deliver some training on improving self esteem/confidence to vulnerable clients who are involved in the project UP2U. Over the past year Sally has delivered training to many of our clients on Assertiveness, Improving Confidence, Effective meetings, Presentation Skills and NLP. All of which have proved to be a great success with our clients. Sally has a great way to help you feel at ease, get the best out of people and encourage others to participate. Many of our clients have gained many useful skills which have enabled them to become or certainly move towards their preferred future of independence. To sum up, Sally is highly professional, highly skilled and highly recommended!
