What a brilliant experience! The whole team had a amazing time and every single activity was fun and involved everyone - great team work! A very special day for our business and it was delivered by very special people from Nero. Thank you! Turn Key www.turn-key.com August 2012
Perfect for what the team needed. A chance to spend sometime together as a group and make the most of the great activities including Raft Building and Mountian Biking. Thanks very much Ronnie and Neil - you looked after us all brilliantly. ASDA Graduate Scheme August 2012

Team Development Programme
Thanks for a fabulous couple of days, despite reservations from a few before the activities everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and importantly the organisation gained a great deal from the event. My executive team were buzzing when we got back and are still talking about it three weeks later! There is an obvious camaraderie within the HQ since our time with Nero.
My son, Charlie, had a survival training birthday party with Nero. The boys said it had been 'awesome!', they had a fantastic time and it had been a party they would never forget. Thanks Nero for such a great day!

My team took an excellent opportunity to benefit from a professional leadership and team building session at Nero Training at Ampleforth. Run by Neil Willis and Ronnie Alexander, the day focused the lads on all the core qualities needed for a game of rugby. Sessions focused on leadership, commitment, stamina, team work and recognising the strengths of those around them. Taking the team away for a day allowed different tactics from the usual training sessions we have. As a coach it was great to get the team to recognise stressful situations, not give in and work as a team to achieve the goal. They all proved to themselves what they are truly capable of. The end of the day saw a group of extremely tired lads, who had each contributed 100%, and who I hope will take forward their experiences into our future matches. I would like to thank Neil and Ronnie for helping explore the leadership qualities in the group, for organising some great activities and for invoking some excellent group discussions. For other sports teams that are thinking about where to take your training next, this was a perfect way to bring out all the qualities within your squad.

"I had a great time on the Nero Boot Camp. You guys had the ability to work out what our levels of fitness were very quickly and push us accordingly. You were charming and good fun. A great way to spend a Sunday. Thanks Jennie."
...when this was arranged with our group of friends there was a sense of anxiety as my exercise routine is 'nil'. My fitness level is appalling and, this, along with an asthma condition did cause me concern! Instead of feeling disheartened and embarrassed I was given enthusiasm, support, encouragement and positive feedback without any pressure attached. The activities were co-ordinated impeccably to take all levels of abilities into consideration, so everyone was able to reach their full potential. On reflection, I can honestly say the satisfaction and achievement of participating in the boot camp has made me more motivated and determined to take my health and exercise more seriously. For the first time in my life I want to exercise and it does not feel like a chore. Thank you guys - everything was fantastic, you tick all the boxes!

"We have worked closely with Nero Training since its conception. Specifically in the development of ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) accredited team building and leadership programmes. I have been impressed by their innovative, non-stuffy, approach to accredited programmes. The courses developed have evolved into highly participative and challenging events. They encourage delegates to think outside the box and look critically at the way they work."
