Testimonials

Bernie ran a two day Coaching Programme for our Business Development Managers both North and South of Ireland. While identifying the positives she was also able to identify the areas where more support and direction was needed from the Directors. Bernie got all of our Business Development Managers to open up in a manner which we had never experienced before and resulted in very constructive feedback to the Board. The actions taken post Bernie’s programme has led to a much more focused BDM team.

Chris Kilpatrick, Managing Director, KCC Architectural Ltd

I engaged Bernie to do in-house training for my sales team.  Right from the beginning I was impressed with her professionalism.  At our initial meeting she quickly understood where the company needed to be and how to work with the sales team to achieve business goals and objectives.  I was very happy with the outcome of the in-house training as were the sales team.  I was also happy with Bernie’s input into future sales development at Sandford Freight Ltd.  I look forward to working with Bernie again in the future and would highly recommend her to any company who is looking to increase their sales.

Brian Falvey, Managing Director, Sandford Freight Ltd

From the start in my dealings with Bernie, I found her to be a consummate professional, and in our preparation briefing, she explained everything in detail and took on board items specific to our AGM to be included in her presentation.  The workshop on Customer Behaviour was most informative and applied to every member of staff whether they were in direct customer facing or in support or back office roles.  I feel that every staff member would have gained valuable insight and learning to improve their relationships and dealings with customers, work colleagues and anybody they had general interaction with.  Bernie presented the workshop very professionally, and everybody was kept informed and general interaction between Bernie and the staff was maintained throughout the presentation.  The feedback from both staff and management was universally positive.  I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Bernie to other businesses who want to train their staff to improve customer and staff relations and professionalism. 

Glenn White, General Manager,, CS Construction Spares Ltd

The PQMS team availed of the services of Bernie back in 2013 to assist with sales and marketing techniques and skills.  We found Bernie to be very knowledgeable and she was able to get across her skills and expertise to us in a very easy and enjoyable way.  We would highly recommend Bernie to anyone looking to learn new skills in sales or just looking to refresh their skills.

John Kehoe, PQMS Limited

We worked with Bernie to review our business model and very quickly she identified where we needed to make changes within our company. She worked with us very closely to implement those changes and treated our company as if it was her own. Her advice and guidance were invaluable to us and we look forward to working with Bernie into the future.

As Training and Development Manager, sourcing trainers who are both technically excellent and easy to work with is really important. Bernie is both, a wonderful facilitator who really gets the best out of course participants and is professional in all her dealings with our company.

"Bernie ran a coaching programme for me, which she delivered to front line managers in the Engineering function. I attended myself and her material and style of presentation was first class. She has a very detailed knowledge of her topic and presents it in a way that brings all participants along with her. I can highly recommend Bernie as a trainer facilitator and as a coach. I hope that we have the opportunity to work together again soon.

We have the pleasure of working with Bernie on an ongoing basis. From the beginning, Bernie very quickly understood our business processes and identified how improvements could be implemented. Her experience and comprehension of business led to very fast improvements in our company. She could see very quickly how we needed to change and more importantly what we needed to do in order to achieve our business goals. She is very committed to helping us achieve our business objectives and works well with all members of our team. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Bernie.

Bernie's ability to distill complex business management concepts and communicate them in a crystal clear way, is one of her many expert coaching attributes. For this and her many other strengths, as a business mentor, I cannot commend Bernie's myriad of talents highly enough.

Bernie has been a Trainer with the Meath Partnership over the past two years. Running training courses in Creative Marketing, The Art of Effective Selling and Fostering Female Entrepreneurship she has been a great source of advice and support to all our clients. She has gone above and beyond in her delivery of the courses and is always very flexible and friendly in her approach. She has also played a pivotal role in encouraging small businesses become confident and focused in their approach to marketing and selling. I would highly recommend Bernie as a Trainer and Mentor.

I am pleased to recommend Bernie Tracey. During her Management Course here in Kilkenny, she was a wonderful asset to our much needed Marketing skills. Her ability to connect with each business owner, by addressing each person's unique talents and specific needs, was absolutely incredible. Bernie was 100% reliable and always gave constructive criticism to each business with an experienced and honest advice for improvement. If anyone is looking for a marketing coach and a life long business mentor, there is no doubt, that you will be especially pleased and enriched by having Bernie guide you along the way.

Her presentation style and insight is second to none and you will see immediate results. She is a pleasure to know and do business with.

"Bernie has a terrific approach and knowns her subject matter inside out. If you want to see your business from a new perspective, Bernie is the ideal candidate to help you achieve this."

Bob Quinn, Money Adviser

I completed the Carlow Enterprise Board's 'Women in Business Enterprise Development Porgramme' which was expertly delivered by Bernie. Astute, consistent, focused and extremely helpful are just some of the attributes that Bernie displayed in her conscientious and thorough teaching of the course. The course was well structured, planned, focused and also importantly, very enjoyable. I would recommend to any business owner who feels they need assistance with marketing and sales to attend one of Bernie Tracey's courses. You will learn so much and you will also enjoy it immensely

Lorna Sixsmith, Garrendenny Lane Interiors

Bernie is an excellent Facilitator and Executive Coach who is highly knowledgeable on her subjects and performs her projects with excellence as her standard.

Imelda Butler, Century Management

Bernie is an engaging and informative trainer with a rare ability to get a room full of students to listen and interact in a friendly productive manner. I've been fortunate to attend a few of Bernie's training courses (communications, sales, running your own business et al) and found them to directly impact on the success of Sole Recruitment. I would highly recommend Bernie's magnetic personality and work ethic....

Justine Negri, Sole Recruitment

I found Bernie to be very efficient in her position; she paid excellent attention to detail from start to finish. Bernie was very punctual and had very good communication skills. She took on the task at hand and completed it in a very professional and diligent manner. Bernie was a pleasure to work with and we will most definitely continue the services provided from Bernie in the future, and would have no problem in recommending her.

Sean Candy, Managing Director, Aertech Satellite Communications Ltd

I engaged Bernie to co-facilitate training and coaching programme for a large client organisation. Working with Bernie was a pleasure. I was delighted with her input to the programme at the design and development phases, with her engaging delivery style and depth of knowledge of the subject matter. Delivery of the programme was fluid and seamless and the feedback from the client was excellent. I can highly recommend Bernie as a trainer and as a coach and I look forward to working with her again following this positive experience.
