I had really high expectations of this workshop, because I was so impressed with Simon after hearing him speak and talking to him at the Impact Working Dog Conference in UK. As soon as Surrey Search Dogs in UK advertised this workshop, I signed up. The workshop was exactly what I needed, it easily met and exceeded my expectations. Simon took the time and energy to get to know each search team and observe them at work to recognise their strengths and areas that needed improvement. He formed a personal connection with everyone and coached us in our progress with warmth and humour. Growing and progressing requires dedication and getting outside my comfort zone. This can be stressful and challenging. Simon took the time to build enough trust, that I was able to face my challenges and make progress:) I’m well on my way to the next level and am looking forward to putting all this learning into practice. And of course, I will be looking for more opportunities to learn with Simon.
