“Dean has provided training to a number of our consultants and we have seen an improvement in results almost straightaway. He tailors the training precisely to the needs of each consultant and for the particular goals of our company - we have never felt that we are receiving training and guidance of the "one size fits all" variety and, with Dean, it is always delivered in a passionate and highly informative way. He always creates a feeling of great optimism in the team and I would recommend him to any company with either experienced or novice recruiters.”

Neil Daly - Managing Director at Hamilton Associates

“I found Dean's training sessions to be highly involving and engaging. His style is driven by real world experiences and I found I was very quickly able to implement his methodologies. Dean offers clear and concise ideas, which can form the basis of best practice, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a top class trainer.”

Mark Walsh - Currently a Senior Consultant at The Recruit Business

“Dean is simply an exceptional recruiting coach. He avoided the typical sales principles such as ABC & AIDA which we all here too often and tailored his course specifically to operating an effective recruitment desk. The topics Dean covers are therefore highly relevant, engaging and easy to apply.” November 6, 2008

Paul Kiernan - Currently a Senior Consultant at Elements

“Dean delivers outstanding recruitment training courses - innovative, impactive and effective. He was excellent at managing consultants of differing levels of experience within 1 group, assessing each individuals development areas and ensuring all were equally stimulated throughout the couse. Dean focussed on high levels of service and differentiating yourself from the competition, I would recommend him to anyone wanting to improve the performance of their recruitment business with immediate impact.”

Charlotte Pickersgill - Senior Consultant at Randstad Group

“Dean delivered an outstanding training course to our company earlier on this year and we have arrangements in place for Dean to provide us with the benefits of his knowledge and approach in the next few weeks.”

Simon Owen - Director at Minerva Appointments

“Dean Gollings provides creative, insightful, and more importantly, proven methods of building and maintaining a successful recruitment model. These methods are original and well thought- out and give recruiters who use his principles a real point of difference in an often saturated market. While many training seminars can be boring and irrelevant to executive recruitment, Dean is interactive, enthusiastic and tailors to his audience accordingly.”

Richard Mulhallen - Currently a Senior Consultant at Tanner Menzies

“Having attended a number of training courses during my 11 year career in recruitment, I have often come away having either learned something or enjoyed myself, but rarely both. Dean somehow manages to combine these characteristics with a natural relaxed charm and immense wealth of experience, that engages everyone present from the most junior trainees to experienced managers.”

Matthew Oakey - Currently Senior Consultant at Howett Thorpe

“Dean is absolutely the most valuable trainer I have ever come across in my career. His training sessions are not only interactive but puts real live examples into practice. Dean is very personable and delivers great results for an individual and for the group as a whole. I would definitely hire Dean again and would recommend him to any business in the recruitment industry.”

Ageeth van Gorp - Manager at Randstad Holland

“Consider any challenging recruitment scenario and the likelihood is that Dean has already met it, tackled it and resolved it. It is this extensive body of knowledge, its real world application and the personal connnection that Dean makes with Recruiters that make him such an effective Coach and Trainer in this arena. I would describe his style as conversational- he brings training to life drawing on his own anecdotes, war stories and Wins / Losses and this approach allows him to engage the audience where others would not. For that reason I would strongly recommend Dean.”

Kevin Fullerton - Currently a Senior Business Consultant at SHL

“Dean has a huge amount of in-depth recruitment experience, and teaches the methodologies very well. With all this experience, his ideas were still fresh, innovative and easily usable. For any recruiter, Dean’s ideas will add value to your operation and enable you to have greater success!”

Dilal Ranashinge - Currently a Manager at Charterhouse Hong Kong

“Dean is a highly innovative trainer. He is vastly experienced in the field - he has done the job he trains people for which adds hugely to the methods he teaches people to adopt. His training sessions are always informative and enthusiastically received by all who attend them. The knowledge and methodology Dean is able to impart are very impressive and I have no hesitation in warmly recommending him.”

Gareth Bacon - Manager, Public Sector at Martin Ward Anderson

“Dean provides first-class, practical coaching that allows recruitment consultants to maximise their earnings and improve their service offering. His knowledge of the industry is excellent and can make a real difference to business success.”

Malcolm Devine - Managing Consultant at Nigel Wright Consultancy

I have worked with Dean for many years and can definitely say that he truly adds value to consultants through his very entertaining training. Dean has the ability to take experienced recruiters onto a higher level, which is a rare talent.” November 5, 2008

Paul Macildowie - Former Owner of MacIldowie Associates

“Dean joined Macildowie in 1998, I had just over 12 months experience in the industry and really benefited from having him around as our version of David Leadbetter. In my opinion Dean gives consultants, of all levels, an eye opening insight into how to do the basics better than your competition as well as how to actually earn the title of "Consultant" in an industry that has earned a reputation for producing pushy sales-people. It's fair to say that Dean's legacy lives on at Macildowie as James Calder, Dan Green and myself continue to teach so much of the stuff that he taught us......he also has a few good stories that are well worth a listen!”

James Taylor - Regional Director at Macildowie Associates

"Occasionally in life you cross paths with a genius and in Dean you have a recruitment genius. I had the good fortune of working with Dean during my early days in recruitment, his training and knowledge is first class and he played a major part in my success in the world of recruitment. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending Dean to anybody looking to upskill their recruitment team."

James Calder - Director, MacIldowie Associates

"My team at MDH are experienced and hard to impress, however, Dean has proved to be a great success. He brings new ideas and approaches that make sense, are readily useable and have a significant impact. If you want to provide development for your recruitment consultants to new levels of effectiveness and ability, you need look no further than Dean. I highly recommend him, and intend to use his capabilities in the future."

Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity

John Baker - CEO, McMillan Davies Hodes

"“Having worked in Financial Recruitment for over 10 years - the last 3 as Director for my own business - it was great to receive credible and innovative training from a proven expert in my field. Deans training isn’t an off-the-shelf package and extends far beyond the traditional process themed 'how to recruit' training but delves deep into the skills and strategies of how to actually take control of the process and generate more revenue. Having received training tackling both increasing revenue on current job flow as well as increasing job flow through smarter business development I have no doubt Deans training will have an impact on our business”
