“During the past 12 – 18 months our company has been working with Brenda Crowley on our Team and Senior Management Development projects. The company offers high quality professional services and we can say that we have always been extremely satisfied with their work. 

CMD Group have always demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the SME market and the challenges faced every day. They worked closely with us from the start and made sure they got to know what our exact needs were. They created and delivered unique training and coaching programmes that were tailored specifically to our needs and made a huge impact on our management team in terms of team effort, strategy,

vision and clarity.

They focused on each individual’s needs and found a way to address them. Their support was evident throughout the entire programme and beyond and they worked hard at building a lasting partnership with our company.

Therefore, I strongly recommend the services of CMD Group and I am looking forward to working with the company  again for  future training & development projects”.

“Bridgestock are a leading ‘one-stop-shop’ Facilities Management company with almost 200 people employed across multi locations almost nationwide providing services to both the public and private sectors. We first encountered the services of the CMD Group five years ago when our business was at a crossroads and we needed some external assistance to help us redefine who were we, where we were going and how we proposed to get there (Mission, Vision & Values). Chris McDonagh and his team facilitated a soul searching two day review event off site with our senior management team and worked with us to help us see the wood from the trees. At this business review event we achieved our objective of redefining our Mission, Vision and Values thus helping us to grow and develop as a company. The facilitation exercise by Chris and his team is still fondly remembered as we have used that experience and the valuable work we did under his expert facilitation to drive our business forward in the intervening years. 

More recently in 2014 we have again engaged the CMD Group to design and deliver a bespoke ‘in-house’ modular Management Development Programme that is helping our management team to further develop their skills and competencies and which is already delivering a significant return on investment.

Since then the CMD Group has designed and rolled out a further very successful bespoke Development Programme for our Team Leaders and we engage CMD on an on-going basis for professional 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring services. Based on our experience of the CMD Group I have no hesitation in recommending them in the highest possible fashion as leaders in the fields of facilitation and training”.
