Some of the lovely things clients have said….

At Nua Training our greatest satisfaction is knowing that our clients are happy. So our focus is naturally on our clients’ successes, and on on the long-term relationships we build.

Our greatest achievement is to have clients who consistently ask us to deliver training to their media sales teams – it proves that our training is reaping results. We work regularly with BBC Studios, DC Thomson, Immediate Media, Discovery, Pottermore and BBC Good Food Shows.


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

ex Commercial Director, Immediate Media

Mary has provided numerous training courses for members of my teams at BBC Worldwide and Immediate Media, 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.

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

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

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.

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 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.

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

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

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

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

The training was spot on and really useful. I now feel more confident presenting data, using the ACE methodology learnt from the course.

Kanokkan Durrant

Head of Finance, Ultima Media

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

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

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.
