A huge thank you to Andy who provided myself and my colleagues with a very informative first aid course. Andy clearly has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area and is happy to share this with others. The course itself was very well presented and evenly tailored to those whom have minimal experience and to those whom have prior first aid experience. Andy was more than happy to answer all our questions and make sure we were clear in our understanding of the course.
I would recommend this course and Andy to anyone who wishes to gain knowledge or refresh in the area of first aid. Once again many thanks to Andy .

It was a pleasure to work with Sheffield’s Element Society team to enhance and update their skills in First Aid with a 3 hour in-house First Aid Course. It’s so important to carry out CPD in all vital areas of responsibility and the professional approach this team takes in outstanding to see. Well done guys.
Over the past 2 months my team have had the pleasure to conduct a bespoke Conflict Management Course for Leicester City Council. The delegates have been across the spectrum from Housing, Traffic, Parks to Office administration and Management. They are subjected to a vast amount of Issues and anger thrown at them due to sometimes unrealistic expectations from the general public. Every day they have been punched, abused, threatened, shouted at, hijacked, sexually assaulted, spat at, received aggressive behaviour and been subjected to a huge amount of hostile reactions everyday they go to work.
Every one of the delegates are solely dedicated to their jobs, they try to do the best they can but however due to budgets, H&S, governmental policies and new safety procedures they are restricted in the services they sometimes can supply.
Andy, We had an enjoyable afternoon with you and your team. It was great to have a variety of activities to take part in which meant that all the members of the team could participate in. The Handball session was really enjoyable – you could see everyone getting involved and the competitive nature of people coming out.
But the good thing was that it was an opportunity to get the team together and have fun in a non-work environment. Also, the fact that you could provide this to tie in with our own budget requirements was great and I’ve already recommended your services to our HR Department should they need ideas for team away days.
We worked with Andy and his team for the second time in October 2017 on a team building day. I was impressed with Andy and his team right from the start, he listened to our needs and created a programme of activity that suited us as a team. The day was brilliant and our team had a fantastic time.
The actives were well designed and suited our mixed ability. Andy and the team supported us all the way encouraging staff to move outside of their comfort zones. We would definitely recommend Andy and his whole team and I’m sure we will be using them in the future.
“From our very first contact Andy and the team from Expert Leadership were brilliant in planning and delivering our team away day for 50 people.
During the planning process Andy P, Andy W and the team at Expert Leadership were great. They made the process so easy for us, were very accommodating of our requests and always super quick to respond. Andy took care of everything for us including transport, lunch and team t-shirts to wear on the day.
The away-day was a total success, every member of our team had a brilliant and very memorable day. The day was planned to perfection and the activities on offer were carefully tailored allowing everyone in our mixed ability team to join in.
The instructors were friendly, knowledgeable and really contributed to the fun. Some of the activities were quite physical (as requested by us!) and the instructors were reassuringly confident when explaining each task.
Expert Leadership offered us a great day of teambuilding activities for a very reasonable price. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a bit of fun and adventure. I’m not sure how we’ll be able to beat this experience next year!”
Our mission is to select the brightest and most driven graduates using the selection methods of the British Army who find and train young men and women capable of performing to the highest standard in the most challenging situations ready for employment in any great Business. More to follow…..
‘We met the guys at Expert Leadership Training back in 2016 at the Sheffield Business Expo conference. We were very impressed by their professionalism and willingness to listen to our needs and ensure that the service they delivered was personalised to us and our group.
The camp itself was great, the structure was brilliant and Andy and the team ensured that everyone was able to join in, but that no one was made to do anything they weren’t comfortable with.
We’re hoping to do more work together as we continue to deliver programmes to improve on confidence, leadership and team working skills in young people.’
