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

I felt much more confident and prepared for the virtual world


I’m used to delivering presentations in person to all types of audiences, but when the pandemic started, my presentations were all shifted to Zoom which I’ve found challenging.

I spent a few hours with Mary, who coached me on my presentation technique and style. Together we established my strengths and weaknesses, and worked to improve my overall delivery.

After a few hours, I felt much more confident and prepared for the virtual world. Highly recommended for those who worry about Zoom presentations!” 

Tom Edwards - Director, PHASE Worldwide



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

Successfully growing our teams...


"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 Evans, CMO - Sovrn

A marked improvement in performance...


"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



Made the whole group feel at ease using Zoom...


"Mary and Tony are a dynamic and engaging training duo who completely understood the needs of every person within our training group and developed the sessions align with common goals and areas of improvement. They were able to bring the natural confident presenter in even the most nervous of my colleagues but did it in a constructive, positive and thoughtful way.

They made the whole group feel at ease using Zoom and went above and beyond to make sure the session was equally as interactive virtually as it would be face to face."
