What people say?

For logistical reasons, I completed my DiSC certification training with Julie virtually – and loved it! The topic and format were perfectly suited to remote-based learning and I didn't lose any of that personal connection Julie's so good at creating. I felt well looked-after, with lots of opportunity to set-and-reset the pace, revisit key topics and spend extra deep-dive time into particularly relevant areas. I also had all the course materials to hand, so very easy to keep up. I'd be happy to complete other training sessions remotely with Julie and recommend the DiSC certification training as one of those programmes that's just as good when delivered virtually.
I worked with the Academy of High Achievers to gain my DISC Practitioner Certification. This was done remotely due to logistics. I found the time spent with Julie French online was incredibly supportive and I was able to not only learn everything there is to know about DISC but I also learned how to deliver profiling to groups myself. I was able to ask lots of questions along the way about anything I was unsure about. As a coach, I have used the tool mainly with one to one clients when they come to me either for help with confidence at work or for career direction. As I grow into a more corporate sector this will be of even further value to me.

I really cannot thank you enough, Julie for the incredible DiSC training day. I learnt so much both personally and professionally and it has made me reflect extremely deeply on the way I come across and how to understand others around me. The session was invaluable to my development and will 100% be doing further training with you! The day was structured brilliantly and although it went far too quickly, I felt the learning was embedded so naturally - I have been digesting everything even more as I tell friends and family all about it. I have been truly inspired and feel transformed as a result of the day. Thank you, Julie!

Training and Development Officer at Mole Valley Farmers Ltd
Such a pleasure working with Julie! Julie continues to be a great support and is very quick to respond to any queries or guidance I need following my Certification in DiSC®. The DiSC® Certification I course I took with Julie was very well organised, professional and Julie makes everyone feel comfortable and able to fully engage in the course. I would highly recommend Aha Training to anyone interested in Everything DiSC®!
Louise Jude
HR Senior Generalist at PolyOne
"We were looking for a tool that could get our employees and managers aligned. The DiSC Certification training from Academy of High Achievers was fantastic. It was informative, relaxed and fun with lots of opportunities to practice. As a result of bringing Everything DiSC into our company, we've reduced staff turnover by improving our people management, and recruitment processes and by reducing conflict."
Craig Hamill
Head of Project Services and Organisational Development, MCIPD
I went through my Wiley DiSC® certification with Julie. Although I was very familiar with the model, her expert knowledge of the various profiles in the selection brought a new depth of insight, which made the certification very valuable, rather than just a tick box exercise to gain a qualification. Since my certification Julie has been very generous with her support, talking me through various scenarios, to ensure I feel very well prepared to deliver each of the programmes at a high level. I would thoroughly recommend working with Julie. She is an exceptional trainer and coach.
