POSITIVE CLIENT FEEDBACK ALWAYS APPRECIATED!

Following delivery of a bespoke version of our ‘Fundamentals of Geotechnical Engineering’ course in Burton-on-Trent for GRM Development Solutions in March, we were very pleased to see their post on LinkedIn here.  Such feedback is always appreciated.

The GRM course was split into three half-day sessions and run for a group of 10 engineering geologists and environmental scientists.  If you feel your organisation would benefit from a short course or series of half-day courses, then just call us to discuss your requirements and see how we could help you.

BESPOKE GEOTECHNICAL COURSE FOR GRM

We have had the pleasure over the last few weeks of running a bespoke version of our ‘Fundamentals of Geotechnical Engineering’ course in Burton-on-Trent for GRM Development Solutions.  It has been split into three half-day sessions and run for a group of 10 engineering geologists and environmental scientists.

Feedback from the course has been very good to date, with just one session to go.  Comments to date include “Excellent course – very nicely delivered” and “Pitched well for a varied knowledge group”.

If you feel your organisation would benefit from a short course or series of half-day courses, then just call us to discuss your requirements and see how we could help you.

MENTORING PLAUDIT

We were delighted to receive recently a fantastic plaudit from Sam Fish for the mentoring support he has received from our Dr Andy Goodwin.  Highlights from the plaudit included:

“…I couldn’t rate Andy highly enough…. as an ICE Reviewer for many years, his understanding of the chartered professional review process is excellent and very helpful to his mentees…. my progression as an engineer is a direct result of his coaching and ability to draw the best out of me.”

The full plaudit may be read here.  Andy was hugely appreciative of the comments from Sam, and is looking forward to continuing to support his other mentees in the same vein.  Feel free to contact us without any obligation if you or your graduates require any mentoring support.

SUCCESSFUL NTU LECTURE

In November 2018 we had great pleasure delivering a lecture on the importance of good site investigation to over 100 Level 3 students of civil engineering at Nottingham Trent University. Feedback from the lecture was very good, with extended discussions afterwards with some very keen students.   We hope to be invited back again next year!
