our clients say

our clients say

Facilitation was excellent. DNA facilitators are such a strong and complementary mix - a perfect team with slightly different styles and also different perspectives on the programme elements - they really balanced each other out and were able to align their styles to match those in the group.

DNA coaches are each incredible. The create a "safe" environment whilst also being challenging and uncomfortable at times. Great facilitators and trainers who make the workshops very interesting and interactive with their own authenticity and stories.

DNA gets the balance between softer elements like authenticity, vulnerability etc. with hard skills like presentation, influencing and negotiating skills just right both in individual and group work.

Everything is planned in detail but comes across as a "strong but light" flow where participants don’t feel overwhelmed and squeezed into an agenda. There’s a real sense of flow and spontaneity while keeping the business relevance and learning needs core at the centre.

I thought the facilitation was excellent - They seemed to be really 'present' and kept the energy up despite long days and emotional topics.
