"I attended a CPD event in Leicester in September 2013 where Bernie was the speaker. I went in to this event not knowing what to really expect, and if my previous CPD events are anything to go by, it would have involved the speaker reading from slides, and me doing my best impression to look interested.

Far from that, I found Bernie's talk to be absolutely fantastic. His presentation skills are second to none and he delivers his material in a relaxed yet stimulating manner.

As the event continued it became abundantly clear that Bernie is clearly someone who knows what he is talking about and his track record shows he can 'walk the walk' as well as 'talk the talk'.

Bernie has already added to my skill set which I am certain will help me grow the firm I work for. He is someone I have already recommended to business owners, and is someone who I think is an asset to any organisation he gets involved with.

Thank you Bernie. - Sanjeev Punj, Litigation Solicitor, Douglas Wemyss Solicitors LLP"

"Thank you for the recent CPD training session you delivered at our firm. I had very positive feedback from all the solicitors that attended, "Fresh", "Really useful" and "Well presented", being recurring themes. I was particularly impressed with your ability to engage across the full spectrum of attendees.

The information you so ably presented helped our people better understand what may make different clients and colleagues tick. I have no doubt that your presentation also helped build confidence to make approaches and challenged us all to put some of your language and communication tips into practice, as well as providing welcome and necessary reminders of some of the basics.

I hope we get the opportunity to work together again soon."

"As an owner and consultant in a media company, I’m technically minded but struggle to find new clients. After investing in a few sessions with Bernie I was able to close a corporate account worth several thousand pounds. If you get business advice from Bernie De Souza, you will absolutely get more clients more easily."

“After my first business coaching session with Bernie, a few days later my first prospect was worth 17x more than what I paid for that session. This had an immediate impact on my business. Bernie has given me the right skills and right words to use to get more clients. Not only has this helped my business, but has given me more confidence and made me proud of what I’ve accomplished in such a short time. You’ll get quick results if you work with Bernie”

“As a managing director of an expanding, successful distribution business, I’m responsible for the staff and need to have my finger on the pulse since the future of many people depend on me. After employing the coaching services of Bernie De Souza, he has helped the company profits, improved team efficiency, and increased the morale of all the staff. I’ve also employed Bernie personally for one-on-one mentoring, so I can learn the leadership and management skills I need. 

We have seen an instant return on investment, and the new structure here with the senior management team has given us the confidence to project a 32% profit increase in the coming year thanks to Bernie’s training and business strategy. I’d recommend Bernie to any company who need to maximize their potential, who need instant results, and who need more clients. He has a track record to make a difference today.”

“I am responsible for running an office with over 150 financial advisors. I invited Bernie to work with us and our partners to help improve their sales and relationship management skills. The results have been quite astounding - helping a number of people achieve their personal financial objectives for the year, and many of them are continuing the coaching program into the next year. 

Bernie was able to deliver a fantastic event for us, and the follow-up was absolutely super. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Bernie, and the process he uses, to anyone who wants to make their own advisors more successful and more profitable.”

"I’m a chiropractor and I’ve spent 5 years in school learning exactly how the human body works. What I was never taught was how to run a business successfully. I knew how to help my clients with their pain, but didn’t know how to make my business efficient and profitable. Bernie has shown me how to take the technical skills I have and apply them to make my business more profitable. My staff are better trained, the business turnover has massively increased - all only a month after we started working with Bernie. Our business turnover is the highest we’ve ever had. I can’t recommend Bernie’s work enough. He’s really helped turn our team around. They’re well trained now, they’re motivated, the energy levels are very high. If you want your business to be more profitable, if you want to learn how to build rapport with clients and your team I can’t recommend Bernie enough.”

"I run a team of 26 financial advisors. We’ve been using Bernie for a number of sessions now, and the feedback has been absolutely outstanding. We’re seeing theory turned into practice as the advisors are using his techniques in the field, and I thoroughly recommend Bernie to any financial advisor who wants to grow their business.”

“I’m the sales and marketing director with CCV, a UK-based insurance broker. We invited Bernie to join our conference panel, and the feedback we’ve had about Bernie’s training has been really really positive. He’s given a lot of energy to the team. He’s given them some techniques that they can take away and use straight away, and he even asks the difficult questions. Bernie, thanks a lot, we’ll be seeing you again.”
