What our clients say

“…I would like to thank you for the enormous amount of time and effort that you put into the preparation and delivery of each of the seminars. The feedback from all of the delegates bears testimony to this, as I can honestly say that the comments reflect the fact that this has been the best received course we have ever run. As always you have the knack of leaving your audience begging for more (I cannot count how many times I’ve been approached with the question/request as to when the next series of seminars is being run).” – Commercial Director, BAM PFI Europe

“Pyments worked with us to develop a bespoke training course for our commercial staff. The training was very energising and participative and included a good balance of theory and worked examples. Tim brings a wealth of in depth knowledge and facilitated the course in an exemplary manner. To reiterate the success of the training, we are now in the process of rolling out the programme at national level.” – Commercial Director, Willmott Dixon Construction
