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.

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.

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.

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.

Bernie is a member of our mentor panel and she has also delivered a number of training courses for the Kildare Enterprise Board in sales and marketing. Bernie has a very good understanding of business practices and has the ability to discern quite quickly where a business needs to go in order for it to succeed long-term. We have been very happy with Bernie's personal commitment and professionalism to our training programmes and the mentor assignments and the feedback from our clients is always very positive.

"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.

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.
