Hayden said, “I’ve watched with interest Simon’s enthusiasm for training and am aware of the extremely positive feedback he has received from the industry.”

“I’m pleased that our mutual colleague Ray Isted already works with Simon and am happy to recommend them both. I will also be offering my support from time to time with guest training.”

Graham has agreed to mentor and support our forward training plans and in this capacity he will still be contributing to our industry education.”
