Client testimonials

We have been providing tailored learning and development solutions since 2012. Here is a selection of testimonials from our wonderful and valued Clients.

James Hill, Director

We have worked with Natalie over the last 4 years to help us develop as a management team and learn how to get the best from the people we work with. She has spent the time to get to know us and our staff as a business and has developed an excellent understanding of our ethos and approach. This has enabled her to both respond to specific requests from us for assistance as well as providing insightful suggestions about areas we should be considering for development in the future.

She has developed and delivered a number of bespoke training courses specific to our needs and not just made us fit an existing course that suited her. These have all been delivered in her relaxed, but professional style that has made tackling difficult subjects easy.

She has been easy to work with and has been instrumental in changing our behaviour, and improving our performance as a business and individuals.

Sam Hunsley,
Director of People & Culture

We have been working with Nats and Soozi for over a year now on a breadth of development requirements across our organisation. They are genuinely an extension of our team now and are super easy and efficient to work with. Whatever our needs, the design, collation and delivery of the content is always extremely well received leaving our employees feeling energised, engaged and really motivated.

I could not recommend Yellow Duck Developments enough.

Gillian Doughty, Group HR Manager

Natalie has been a key contributor in delivering our International Graduate Development programme.  We have continually developed the programme and Natalie has been invaluable in improving and adapting the programme – which included the unforeseen challenging times of Covid – to maintain quality of provision.  Feedback from the graduates is excellent – finding the workshops informative, insightful and fun. 

Natalie is engaging, enthusiastic and highly intuitive in adapting her style to suit the audience. 

It has been a great pleasure to have the collaboration with Natalie to deliver a highly successful programme.

Judit Guerra-Falcon, Technical Affairs and Circular Economy Manager

I thought I had my ideas clear about what I wanted to achieve in my professional career…but what wasn’t that clear was how to become that person.

It wasn’t until I met Natalie that my eyes really opened and I was aware of all my strengths and weaknesses. I never imagined I could become the person I am today and I have to thank Natalie for that, for her tools, knowledge and hard work.

I know many challenges are still to come but I am ready – thanks to you. Thanks Natalie

Rebecca McMahon, General Manager

Nats is the most skilled trainer I have had the pleasure of working with.

She has helped to challenge and drive our needs analysis and translate this into amazing and engaging training design.

She has an ability to pitch session delivery to all levels whereby learners fully engage in the event. She achieves this through her charismatic approach, her depth of knowledge in her areas of expertise, her experience and stories that bring learning to life and her ability to create action-based events that get learners ‘out of their seat’s’ and to participate fully in the sessions.

Role play is replaced for real-play, accelerating the transfer of learning into each delegates’ specific work environment.

Nats is the best, I cannot recommend her enough.
