We measure the success of our coaching and mentoring courses and all our training by the feedback we receive from the people we work with. Below is a small selection of some of those testimonials:

I had the pleasure of working with Eileen when I was Programme Manager for the Take Part programme.  As part of a national learning framework the programme aimed to enable groups and individuals to get more involved in local communities and decision making.

Eileen was the main trainer for this successful programme.  Her unique style of training and enthusiasm played a key role in empowering people in local communities – Stevenage and Borehamwood – to be heard, get involved and to transform their lives.  As a skilled trainer she was able to offer a range of courses and adapted them to suit the needs of individuals.  Her passionate approach and desire to help people with their personal journeys is remarkable.

On top of this she runs a thriving social enterprise, is a skilled coach and business advisor.

“I would like to thank HCMA for giving me the opportunity to carry out
the ILM level 2 Team leading skills award, the course has proved highly
beneficial and as a new organisation has instilled the fundamental
knowledge of what it takes to build a successful and effective team.


“I would like to thank Eileen Hutchinson who facilitated the course and
created a positive and relaxed learning environment which helped myself
and the rest of the group flourish and achieve our full potential.”


“The best thing about the course was the fact that I was able to meet
such extraordinary people who, through their and the tutor’s feedback,
were able to show me key strengths that I had and was not aware of!”


I found the course extremely beneficial to honing my
leadership skills, I was able to identify my leadership style and now
have a better understanding of the tools needed to lead a successful
team. Eileen the trainer and the other delegates on the course were
interesting and inspiring, really friendly people, we all clicked
immediately and got on brilliantly, the atmosphere was electric! I
thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend attending.”


“I recently completed an Institute of Leadership and Management Team Leadership course with HCMA, facilitated by Eileen Hutchinson.
I found the course well-structured, easy to follow and presented at a pace which worked well for me and the other candidates. It was interactive to a comfortable degree which encouraged learner engagement and employed various learning styles to suit everybody.
As with other courses run by Eileen that I have attended the group quickly gelled into a collaborative and supportive ‘family’, with everyone working together to achieve results in an exciting, enthusiastic and fun atmosphere;
I look forward to working with Eileen again soon.”


“I am grateful for the knowledge and the support provided by HCMA and will be forever be indebted to them as I now know and feel that I truly have a mature adult that I can turn to on a regularly basis, which will unable me to continue on an upward positive spiral.”
