What people say about our courses
Thoroughly enjoyed the course although at times, I found it fairly challenging. I have now requested that all my management team attend the course. Thank you.
Ian, First Data Ltd
Ian demonstrated his vast knowledge on the areas covered by this course and presented them in a very professional manner. His relaxed unpressed approach made the learning process easy and fun. I would have no problem recommending Ian and Cognisant Training to anybody wishing to receive high quality training.

Cognisant Training have provided various personal development and soft skill courses for Urban Media. We have seen a positive ‘after effect’ from each and we can demonstrate the benefits in our business profits and morale.
Having worked with both Pam & Ian Thomas for the last two years, I have found their enthusiasm for Training infectious. On a number of occasions I have asked for specific training to be tailored to our business and they have never failed to provide just what I am looking for. Summing up in a few words: Professional, helpful, extremely knowledgeable about their subject matters and dedicated to providing an exceptional level of service to their clients.

Christine, First Data
Ian is an incredibly talented man who has an uncanny way of understanding you, more than you know yourself. Ian quickly builds a rapport with his audience and with his calming nature helps settle our nerves. The course content is well structured and the exercises are not only eye opening but also fun. Thank you for a great 4-days, I look forward to the next one.
George, First Data Ltd
I have found the training to be very effective from using small elements of what I learned while on the course, some of which I also apply to my personal life. I look forward to having a moment to sit down and go through the file I was given, and practice some of the other elements we worked through. I thought the pre-course activity was a well thought-out exercise, particularly that you are reviewing your ‘natural state’ in the situation from watching the replay rather than actually doing th…
