"What an outstanding service. Having worked in HR for many years was initially sceptical but was drawn to the informative website and booked in. Cormac was warm, welcoming and clearly an outstanding expert in his field! The advice I was given was informative, helpful, nuanced to my needs and I would not hesitate in recommending this organisation and Cormac in particular to all my friends and colleagues. Great value for money I would give 5 out of 5 for the service I received, the quality of expert knowledge and advice and the warmth of delivery that immediately put me at ease."
