Testimonials

What our clients say about us:

Guildhall Chambers

"We really valued Haynes Consulting’s training course for clerks and managers in chambers. I would happily recommend Simon Gill as an outstanding business development trainer. He offered practical insights, managing a diverse team with varying degrees of scepticism so well that the feedback and practical use for the course has been exceptional. Simon developed a bespoke course and his style on the day was very engaging and constructive. In 25 years in law firm management, I have rarely found better."

Hamish Munro

Chief Executive

3 Serjeants’ Inn

"I was looking for some fun training for my clerks, something that they might enjoy and would bond them together more. What I got was an exceptional trainer who actually understood the work that we do and managed to relate to us all. I even learnt something myself. Thank you Simon, I will be in touch."

Nick Salt

Senior Clerk

Simmons & Simmons

"An exceptionally good and worthwhile course – very practical, I loved the mediation session. The training was entertaining & interactive."

 

Associate Solicitor

Coffin Mew

"Your sessions on ‘Delighting Clients’ provided our Residential Property teams with a highly interactive, client focussed and practical view on how we can improve our internal and external client experience. You made a difficult set of subjects easy to understand with some real life examples of how these can be implemented - thoroughly enjoyable and totally worthwhile."

Ray Cobb

Director of Marketing

Keating Chambers

"Haynes came to Chambers to give our Clerking Team some specific training on negotiation and persuasion skills. Without exception, our whole team thought the Haynes session was by far the best training we had ever received. It was informative, every aspect was explained clearly, processes demonstrated in a clear and concise fashion, and perhaps most importantly was a lot of fun. We will be using them again."

Nick Child

Senior Clerk

Dere Street Barristers

"Many thanks Simon for a most informative and enjoyable training course. The feedback from our clerks and staff has been exceptional. The training was just what I was looking for to assist with negotiation skills. I have already heard the clerks dealing with our clients in a more persuasive manner!

I will certainly recommend you to my colleagues on circuit."

Kevin Beaumont

Senior Clerk

5 Paper Buildings

"Simon Gill provided relationship marketing training for our Members of Chambers at the AGM. Without exception everyone found the material extremely beneficial and provided some much needed enthusiasm. Even the most experienced and sceptical Members of Chambers came away from the meeting having learned something new, much of which has already been put into practice. I have no doubt Chambers marketing will be more successful as a result of the training and I hope to use Simon again in the future."

Andrew Ross

Chambers Business Manager

What our delegates say about us:

"Simon was extremely enthusiastic and it was refreshing to have a trainer who knew his audience and was able to adapt the training to relate to our job as a barrister’s clerk"

"I would highly recommend this training – the fact that many other chambers have taken up the offer of this training comes as no surprise."

"Excellent trainer – made the sessions interesting and enjoyable."

"Simon was enthusiastic, had a great deal of knowledge about the subject he was training us on, and was very friendly and made everyone feel at ease."

"Simon was an excellent trainer. He allowed us all to express ourselves without leaving anyone out of the group and he injected humour when needed. Overall he gave me a lot more confidence for my day to day dealings."

"I was a bit sceptical prior to the training having had similar courses before, but once we had the first one I felt it was interactive enough to really open up my mind and to challenge me to focus in areas I feel weaker in. A lot of this was down to the way Simon handled the sessions and allowed people to be as involved as they felt comfortable with."
