My experience in using Amanda’s advice has been positive and extremely useful, I’ve found myself creating and viewing my goals in a more focused and positive manner which has allowed me to embrace, drive and deliver on my career aspirations.”

“Amanda has supported the Board and I to better understand our talent population and their needs. This has allowed us to prioritise activity both to develop individuals and to increase capability across the business to support our growth aspirations. Amanda has delivered this in a professional and efficient way and has quickly built credibility across our Board members.

“I attended a Personal Organisation & Managing an Effective Team Workshop delivered by Amanda Winder from Strive Development. It was a well-run workshop that included good discussions and ideas on how to improve performance in terms of time management & team management which were easy to apply to the work situation. Amanda’s style was relaxed and informative so that I felt comfortable asking questions, if necessary. I enjoyed the workshop and learnt from it and would recommend workshops conducted by Strive Development.”

Amanda Winder assisted McDermott Marine Construction Ltd to achieve Corporate Membership of IMeche to the benefit of the Company and our Engineers. Following the success of this project, Amanda provided senior level coaching, using a variety of methods to tackle areas such as communication, networking, planning, time management and career planning. Her approach is very much working in partnership to guide and support, making herself available and following up in a timely and professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Strive Development to other organisations.
