Lloyd was my trainer on a Volunteer Training Course in Leeds. The course was a great help towards me finding work after 18 years on the dole through my own substance misuse problems. Although I had a fair knowledge of drugs, I had little knowledge of work and little in the way of confidence. I feel like these were the areas in which I gained the most from the course. Lloyd was a great help as a trainer, encouraging me to do things which I did not think would be possible for myself, such as giving presentations. I think what really helped was his passion and enthusiasm for the subject and the work. I found this inspiring and would highly recommend him as a trainer.”

    Dear Lloyd, I would like to have an initial conversation with you about providing some training to our organisation. Are you able to provide training in cantonese? Most of our staff are cantonese speakers although they are able to speak English. Also, we would like to know the cost of training etc. I can call you to discuss. Thanks. Walter

      Hi Walter, depending on the training material then I might be able to deliver training in Cantonese. However, I am more comfortable in Mandarin or English. Please call me on 6579 3006 to discuss this. Lloyd
