Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for Professionals Training Course Reviews:

"It was great - lots to think about. Plenty of theoretical stuff... and plenty of application. Many benefits doing it as team - as I think this will provide lots of opportunities to apply to our workplace and encourage each other as individuals."

Institute of Directors

"Ian I would like to thank you for the EQ training course I attended. I was nervous going into the class and your style of delivery and engagement made it easy for me to participate throughout the day. I would recommend this course to others without hesitation."

Individual Participant


"I think the course and the trainer (Ian) were great and the course reflected on my learning needs. I have been through some soft skills training's before but this course is much more comprehensive and practical, and it give people different perspective. I really liked the self-awareness/self-management part and I hope more colleagues from SX Hospital will be able to attend this course in near future."

Individual Participant


"Tim was awesome - I really enjoyed his use of real life examples and magic tricks!!"

"Michael was very approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. He made a full day course both engaging and fun."

"Really good that the presenter worked in a similar field to us & understood our clients."

The Loft


"Michael was great - personable and knowledgeable and made the subject matter very interesting. I was already interested in EQ going into the course, but expected a training course to be somewhat slow or forced. This was most definitely not the case! The day flew by and I feel like I gained knowledge that I'll be able to use daily at work and in my personal life. I'd recommend this course highly to colleagues, and I'd love to do another."

Auldhouse Wellington


"I really enjoyed this trainer. He was funny and engaging and very knowledgeable."

"Great trainer who got us all motivated and used interesting slides and put us into groups."

Callaghan Innovation


"I found the course extremely valuable. I feel it was the best course I have attended in a very long time. It was full of useful content for my circumstances and Kim did a fantastic job in facilitation. I am a trainer/facilitator myself so found a few small opportunities in delivery that I would alter however none of it significant enough to mention. Really great job done Kim. If only there was part 2 to the course I would be very interested in attending. Thanks for a fantastic day!"

Inland Revenue Hamilton


"I found the course very engaging and interesting and it has given me some scope to reflect on my needs in a more positive way both at work and in my personal environment. The exercises were well run and I felt that the presenter did an excellent job in explaining and leading the group during the day. I did feel the day was quite full and would enjoy exploring this subject and content over a 2 day timeframe in order to have the time to cover the topics more fully. I would recommend this course to anyone who wishes to learn more about themselves and others in a constructive and positive way to enhance relationships and communication."

Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment


"Enjoyed the workshop very much."

"It was all very good, I think the other attendees added to the course."

Ballance Agri-Nutrients


"This course was very useful and delivered in a non judgemental environment. As always when people who work together go to training there was a fair amount of fun and joyfulness above the course and trainer. It got noisy and off course at times. I commend the trainer on keeping this on track and not making a big deal about the noise and giggles. Well done. It was an enjoyable day."

"Our trainer was very professional and enthusiastic. It shows she loves what she does. I found the course very informative and have come away with ideas that I will try to put into place with my team."



"A really informative and fun day, I loved it and got a lot out of it!"

"Most useful part of the course, was having participants discuss their experiences. The video about the Manager and employee was useful and discussion around that."

I enjoyed the course and found it very useful and I aim to use it in both a professional and personal level. Thanks again Tammy was very good with her delivery and did an excellent job of keeping the group on track whilst at the same time giving everyone a fair time to ask questions. Thank you Tammy I would say the only thing negative is that everyone in the business may not get to do the course as it is invaluable, especially at this time of change.

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
