testimonials

I've worked with Paul on numerous occasions in recent years where he has worked with me and my regional leadership teams in Europe and North America. On these occasions, Paul worked with me not only to facilitate workshops, but also to develop a full action plan from inception through multiple workshops through follow-up. My objective was to develop cohesive, high performance leadership teams and Paul's use of various tools, workshop facilitation and coaching allowed me and my teams to accomplish our objective. Paul brings a personal touch to his work that I find appealing in that it enables individuals and teams to open up about the challenges they face, and in identifying and understanding these challenges, build the trust necessary to successfully overcome them. I can personally recommend Paul to those leaders who are looking for an individual who can help them move their teams to a higher level of performance.

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Dent through two different ENS engagements – one in North America and the other in Europe.  In both cases, Paul connected with our commercial teams on a personal and professional level which allowed for direct and insightful exchanges.  With this alignment and engagement, Paul was (is) able to move people through uncomfortable issues and landscapes and help them reposition to one that is more thoroughly understood and provides greater leverage.  With this confidence and grasp of the ENS process (which distills innate content) our teammates are more productive, impactful and morale has improved.  I have also worked with Paul on singular issues and opportunities where a second set of eyes and a keen mind are needed.  In these cases, I am always delightfully impresses by how much I have missed and that Paul has been there to help me “dot all my I’s”.  Aspects that seemed insignificant ultimately were the blockers and with Paul’s guidance and exchange I have been well prepared. In short, I wish I had a Paul on my staff.  A trusted advisor with keen insights and strong process provides great confidence as I navigate the complex, global world, as well as the smaller, more personal space of relationship building and influencing.

David Cottrell, Management Consulting.

Paul is a highly skilled, professional trainer and facilitator. I always found the work we did with Paul very rewarding, stretching and fun. He has a real gift for taking and applying the key learning points in a way that makes them relevant to real world situations. One of his passions, that marked him out from many other learning facilitators, was his drive to ensure that people went away and applied what they had learned.

As a large company we were seeking creative business development ideas - how do we find new customers and applications for our wide range of technologies?  Paul Dent helped us create an exciting, innovative workshop process where our technologists and customer-facing people collaborate and communicate in new ways, and match our customers' needs with our best-fit technologies.  From the very beginning, people could tell this process was different.  By the time they left the workshop, they had a clear action plan and new collaborative relationships to grow our business.  As a direct result of one of the workshops, an industry leader selected our company to be their exclusive partner for next-generation products.   Paul’s creativity and expertise in facilitation and workshop design enabled us to take this step forward.   He has an amazing ability to modify facilitation techniques in-the-moment to keep participants both excited and focused!   Paul facilitated the first workshops and trained several of us to be in-house facilitators, so we can now lead these workshops internally.
