Media businesses are what we know and love…

Mary has been a key partner to the sales organisation at Immediate and has played a vital role in delivering superb sales results. Mary really understands both the needs of the team and the business and has delivered bespoke programmes to ensure that we’re always one step ahead of the market. Such is Mary’s contribution we have worked with her since the business was established in 2011 and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to others.

Duncan Tickell

Commercial Director, Immediate Media

Mary has provided numerous training courses for members of my team at BBC Worldwide, both in one-on-one and group sessions. I’ve always seen a marked improvement in their performance thereafter. Whether it be presentation skills or sales training the work Mary has done has resulted in improved skills as well as confidence. I would not hesitate to recommend Nua Training to any organisation.

Chris Kerwin

Publishing Director, BBC Worldwide

Mary is an excellent trainer, taking the time to understand our business and instantly build good relationships with my team. We have worked with Mary for over four years and she has successfully delivered a variety of training and coaching sessions which have helped to improve and develop individuals and therefore make the team stronger. The team respond really well to her and her style and look forward to her sessions as they know she always delivers interesting, thought provoking and practical training.

Andy Williams

Head of Advertising, DC Thomson Magazines

We decided to work with Mary to help deliver all-year-round training to our programmatic teams at Sovrn UK. Mary quickly became an integrated and trusted partner and is regarded as one of the team and she has helped us on many levels to grow successfully our teams.

Andy Evan

Why do I use Nua Training?, in short because Mary’s training works.  Mary’s ability to understand the culture, process and desired outcomes are what allow her to tailor her apporach, style and pace when working with members of my media sales team.  The results, we monitor closely are always improved, and often dramatically so.  Sales people respect her as he has “done it” herself.

Malcolm Stoodley

Sales Director, Exterion

Mary’s vast knowledge of media sales has helped us to streamline the productivity of our team and the way we approach our day-to-day. Her hands on, personal approach means each individual involved comes out with measurable improvements. She is not only an integral part of how we get new starters up and running, but also how we boost the output and sales of our existing staff.

Paul Foster

Head of Direct Sales, Bay Media

An excellent course, I really enjoyed the team spirit and experience sharing.  It was very relaxed and informative and very useful for my role.

Mary is a very insightful trainer who looks beyond just how to get the most from each sales person but also how that person can achieve goals in the longer term. On a personal level, Mary has developed great relationships with everyone on the sales floor and tailors her coaching to individual needs. She has provided excellent mentoring for our Group Heads, so that we now all have a common goal and vision. Her training also delivers tangible results. Over a period of 6 months we have seen certain sales people’s revenue increase by 25%.

Andrew Mogridge

Managing Director, Web Windows

The presentation skills training was superb.  The atmosphere was very ‘safe’ which made it an enjoyable experience and made it a better learning experience.  I found the content very relevant for my day to day work so can implement what we learnt immediately.

Barbara Bates

Contract Manager, Abbott Nutrition

The digital media sales training programme was excellent.  It made digital easy to understand and it will be extremely useful for me when I am pitching cross platform solutions to our media agency clients. Both Colin and Mary have fantastic knowledge and are clearly experts in their field.

Guy Massey

We have been working closely with Nua Training to develop our ‘Sales Academy’. Mary’s extensive media sales knowledge, coupled with her understanding of our business needs, has resulted in all courses being tailored to our requirements.  Mary is an inspirational and engaging trainer who has the ability to make things simple.  The training has been very productive and following the hugely positive feedback from delegates we will be continuing our relationship well into the future.

Kate Rutter

ex Head of Marketing, CBS Outdoor

Nua Training recently delivered Digital Media Training for our employees in London. Mary showed a huge amount of dedication to the course delivery, speaking directly to a range of employees in order to fully understand the training need. This tailored approach was invaluable as the course content really focused on the requirements of the team. The feedback from the attendees was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend Nua as a training provider of choice.

Cheryl Mc Hugh

HR Business Partner, LinkedIn Europe

Mary is a superb media sales trainer. She has a wealth of experience which she shares in an intelligent and motivating way, quickly understanding the development needs of the team. We have seen immediate improvements from her work with our sales people and would highly recommend her.

Helen Rosemier

ex Commercial Director, PPA (Professional Publishers Association)

We engaged Mary to help enhance the presentation and negotiation skills of our digital media sales team. With her extensive experience in this area we had high expectations of the value she would bring to the team. However these expectations were greatly exceeded. She helped the team present our proposition in a more succinct and positive way- and realise the value in what we are providing to the market. The ongoing references to the learning gained on the course is testament to the value it is continuing to bring to our business.

David Smyth

Sales and Marketing Director, Mediafed

My presentation sessions with Mary were an eye opener. They were challenging, thought provoking and gave me far greater confidence about approaching the different types of presentations I have to give. However, her work spread far further than just presentation skills; the way of thinking has changed my perspectives in many of my business methods. Her training really was a breath of fresh air.

Forbes Low

Forbes Design

The best media sales training I have had in the last 8 years; why? Because the tips given and live coaching were invaluable.

Dora Michael

Seven Publishing

Mary created a well tailored Digital Media Sales Training course which she delivered to 15 delegates at our offices. The course content was informative, useful and engaged our sales team in an interactive way. Feedback from all participants to the course and its delivery was very positive and we hope to undertake training for more of our sales team in the future.

Amanda Nightingale

Head of Digital, Warner Publishing

Mary’s extensive knowledge of media sales coupled with her ability to communicate a complex message simply yet profoundly made the course an enjoyable, invaluable and motivating experience.

Mark Dullaway

Premier Media

I wanted to say thank you again for a very useful and informative day. It’s proved very thought provoking and feedback from the team was universally positive. They are fired up about moving forward.

Brian Cameron

Sales Director, Wynex Media

If your intention is to create pitches incorporating multiple types of media then I would recommend this course.

Terence Dawson

British Medical Journal

The media sales training was incredibly useful and gave a fantastic understanding of how to present our company in the best possible way.

Constante Mancini

Mediafed

Mary recently ran a presentation skills training course for the media sales team at Seven.. We chose Mary because she has great experience as a sales person and presenter herself and we felt that added credibility and a ‘real’ feel to the training,. The courses she put together were entirely tailored to our requirements and the needs of the various individuals. Sales people tend to fear presentation training but in this instance the team were unanimous about the fact that the courses were practical, enjoyable and productive. The end result was that everyone had a quick and easy way to construct presentation content regardless of the occasion, giving them the confidence needed for successful delivery.

Tina Hanks

ex Advertising Director, Seven

Mary recently provided digital sales training for Five’s TV sales team as part of a project to bring digital sales in-house. The training provided an introduction to the world of digital, an A to Z of the key terms and the agency perspective, among other things. It was well received by the Five team who are now selling digital display and online video advertising, alongside TV. Mary’s training was a crucial catalyst in enabling this to happen.
