“Trainer was very clear and personable, obviously knew the subject very well. A good balance of ‘talk and chalk’ and practical exercises. Materials were spot on – not too much to confuse. Very well balanced course – one of the best!”

-Derek Russell, Fife Council, Green Belt programme.


“Very impressive knowledge of the subject; both the theory and real-life examples which make up a very interesting and relevant experience. Delivery very helpful – mixture of slides, words, anecdotes and videos. Very pleasant environment.”

-David Hemington, Communities and Local Government, Green Belt programme Belt.


“Being able to speak directly to the course tutor, before I booked onto the course was invaluable.”

– Ann Eason, National Manager for Pathology Service Improvement, NHS.


“Very impressed with the techniques and methods used.”

-Pani Kothandapani, Surrey County Council, Green Belt programme.


“Excellent trainer, would highly recommend. Fun, energetic, kept the ‘dry’ parts of the course interesting. I have been on lots of different courses, but really felt that I had learnt something new.”

– Jenny Clegg, BAA, Green Belt programme.


“Absolutely wonderful trainer, clever, bright, personable, entertaining and set at a very good pace. Lots of psychology and theory as well as some ‘live’ examples, all of which really made great sense. Materials guide clear, relevant and almost an idiot’s guide in the nicest possible sense of the word – great. Fabulous content, in-depth and again, all relevant. Great location and easy to get to. I loved this course and normally would have zoned out by 3pm on day one, but I was still bright eyed and bushy tailed at the end, that’s a first! Many thanks and looking forward to part two.”

– Fiona Scott, Bank of Scotland, Green Belt programme.


“The course attracted a mix of international delegates from service and manufacturing organisations which stimulated great discussions that helped to absorb the application of Lean SS Techniques. The tutor delivered the course to an exceptionally high standard, carefully paced and with good balance between classroom and practical sessions. He was a highly experienced Master BB who had great mastery of Minitab and the ability to de-mystify the statistical side along with extensive consulting exposure. His teaching used many real life examples. He showed keen interest in each delegate and the challenges they faced in their projects offering ideas and helping to get started and build confidence. The course also included a really valuable session on the soft aspects of change management. Thank you Catalyst.”

-Sue Birch, Synergetic Ltd, Green Belt programme.


“There are any number of companies providing Six Sigma consultancy and training. Catalyst were unique in being able to provide material tailored to the Financial Services industry, and consultants who have relevant, practical experience that they could relate to people in different roles and at all levels. Their style is supportive, but not condescending, and they bring a touch of humour that is refreshing when considering applied statistics!”

-Estelle Clark, ex Quality Director, Financial Ombudsman Service. (now Chair of CQI)
