I've worked with a few training and coaching companies, but what Hazel Stride brings to the table is her experience of buying and dealing with suppliers, having been a senior buyer at Tesco. She is the only coach and trainer we have engaged with an extensive knowledge and hands-on experience of buying.
She confidently ran a series of training sessions with our team so that we could identify 'what best practice looks like' and have the debate. Hazel is confident in her subject and that enabled us to move off the agenda when we wanted to explore different areas. We have been able to create a clear vision and strategy and define how we operate as a team, in addition to learning how to interface with buyers to maximise our opportunities.
Hazel's professional approach, flexibility and the added element of fun in our team sessions makes her good to work with. We achieved what we needed to and Hazel's regular post-review follow-up was excellent.
