    What Our Clients Have To Say

    Kathy Simpson

    “The Harvest team have a key skill of getting under the skin of your business to determine what you really need, as opposed to what you think you want. The sales team felt that they were being supported and developed to get results, not just completing another training course. The coaching mindset has been a shift change and our sales teams are owning their plans and outcomes.”

    “As the HR Director for Chadwicks Group we have partnered with Harvest on numerous learning initiatives and can confidently say that Harvest always deliver a programme that meets the needs of our organisation.  From the design stage through to delivery, they are professional, insightful and thorough ensuring the original objectives are met and exhibited in the training programme.  The actual training is always on point, interactive and inspiring.  Instructors are knowledgeable, engaging, and provided clear, concise material.  Colleagues give great feedback and can immediately apply the learning to their work.  I cannot recommend Harvest highly enough.  They exceed expectations, and I am confident that anyone who partners with them will find their organisational goals are easier to achieve.”

    “The ComReg HR team and I have successfully collaborated with Nicola and the Harvest team on several initiatives over the past decade.  Most recently, we have worked with Ailish Reid on developing a be-spoke series of mentoring programmes and with Tony Hayes on recruitment related learning.   These are experts, who listen, advise, direct and collaborate to understand our  needs and deliver to a high standard.  Their professionalism, commitment and delivery are impressive and continue to lead to successful outcomes.”

    ‘We, in Depaul, have worked with Harvest Management Consultants on a number of learning programmes as they have an excellent understanding of our needs and tailor their offerings to work within our context. They deliver engaging content and the facilitation is exceptional in terms of quality”

    Carmel Comiskey

    “We initially engaged with Nicola and the Harvest Team to invigorate our sales development within our Local Office Network.  From the outset Harvest focused on meeting us where we were and did a deep dive to really understand us, “get us” and align their solution to our values and specific needs.  This is why we went back to them when we began looking at our FBD Mentoring Programme to ensure we had a robust framework in place.  Subsequently we engaged with Harvest to support us with our 1st Graduate Development Programme which launched in October 2022.   We continue to benefit from the tools, systems and techniques which Harvest introduced us to.”

    “We engaged with Harvest Training for a bespoke Leadership and Talent Development Programme for some of our senior and middle management teams, and the feedback from every delegate has been hugely positive. The detailed pre-work that went into developing the programme to best suit our teams’ needs was clearly visible in the classroom as the masterclasses were interactive, engaging and highly relevant. The course facilitators are both commercial and training experts who articulately relay their knowledge and pragmatism to the leaning environment of the classroom. I would have no hesitation in recommending Harvest as your expert training solutions provider.”

    “Harvest has worked on Leadership and Development training programmes with the IFA Board and Executive Council – and with a number of our National Commodity Committees – and also on Negotiating Skills with the FMP (Fresh Milk Producers) committee .  They have also taken the lead on our annual “Future Leaders Programme” over this period. This longstanding relationship with Harvest has been very positive from our perspective with consistently excellent feedback from these programmes.  Harvest have also assisted us in focus groups and working groups to help identify the development needs and skills gaps and this guidance from a professional training body has been critical in helping our Network to future proof and future plan.“

Their focus on relationship development and continuous improvement gives us confidence in the continuing partnership.”
