What our clients say about us
Crawford & Company
"We recently worked with Zing365 to develop a customised training programme for our senior managers at Crawford & Company. By developing a strong relationship between Crawford & Company and the Zing365 training & account management teams, they truly took the time to understand our specific business needs and as a result created a programme that exceeded all our expectations.
The course had practical application and activities that were tailored to our company and values, cementing the learning, and encouraging transfer to the workplace. The feedback from our senior managers has been overwhelmingly positive. We are now rolling the programme out to other areas of the business due to its success. The mentorship and guidance throughout the process was invaluable and we highly recommend their services and look forward to working on future projects together."
Kentro Capital Limited
The Kentro Capital group of companies offer colleagues a range of opportunities for professional development, including activities which support their mental health and wellbeing. We engaged our partners at Zing on various occasions to facilitate workshops to help individuals understand themselves and each other better, and to feel confident in expressing themselves and their needs at work.
The feedback we received from participants in these events was entirely positive. Almost all participants reported having learnt something new about their colleagues during these events. The majority reported they learnt options for improving their experience at work and new ways to express themselves and their needs. Many indicated the session motivated them to participate in other development activities. Some said, after the session, they felt empowered to ask for what they needed to be effective at work and more engaged with their work than before.
One of the business leaders whose team participated in a Zing workshop observed, "Matt was a fantastic presence in the training and was quick to make the entire team feel comfortable. We all went in open minded but were expecting to find out more about ourselves and each other than ways to actually apply what we had learnt to improve personal and professional relationships. We have all managed to improve our approach to our individual brokers and markets, all seeing successes. Matt also did a follow up meeting with the team which allowed us to ask any questions on things that may not have gone as expected and, from that, we managed to improve yet again."
Polygon Damage Control
"Within the last year I have had direct dealings with the Digital Learning team at Zing365. Quite quickly I was able to establish that the system had the flexibility to fulfil our needs at the time and therefore we went ahead and migrated our historical data to Zing’s customisable learning portal.
I have always found the company very easy to deal with and would like to add special thanks to Colin and Bradley who have and continue to support me on our journey, they have never failed to respond promptly and to my satisfaction. In addition, they are both very customer focused and are able explain things in a straightforward way and have been a pleasure to work with."
Feedback from our webinars and workshops
"I found the presentation well-presented and engaging, with good visual content. The element of participation kept it engaging and led to good conversation points."
"Definitely a very interesting course and I will be revisiting the content to help me to be aware of how this will benefit my job role and myself personally."
"A well-paced informative session that it may be useful to view again as there will be other bits I may have missed whilst writing copious notes!"
