I found the two sessions a fascinating insight into the psyche of both clerks and barristers alike. It is going to greatly assist me in the future in how I approach both their practice management and how I market them and Chambers. I would thoroughly recommend the course to any staff at a senior level. It will undoubtedly make them think about Chambers management in new ways.
In a world of diminishing returns, this two day course was enjoyable, thought provoking, relevant to all market areas and value for money. I came away with ideas and belief that things can change for the better, even in the criminal chambers.
The course was nothing but brilliant, on point and very relevant in modern clerking. It rejuvenated and refocused my thoughts.
I thought that all three sessions were incredibly successful, hugely informative and provided useful practical tips that can be applied to everyday life in Chambers. I would recommend the sessions to anyone looking to improve their business development skills.
I have attended every module myself and so can personally attest to the quality of the course. We are already seeing benefits in the way individuals are using aspects of the training in their day-to-day work.
I have known Don Turner for a number of years and I was pleased to finally get the opportunity to formally work with him. I attended a two day training course designed for senior management. From start I finish I found the course to be extremely informative and thought provoking. It was refreshing and rewarding to sit around a table and share ideas and problems with colleagues from other chambers from around the country – I would go as far as to say it was cathartic!
Don’s approach to business planning and strategic business development was spot on. I have taken away a number of ideas and applied these into my daily working life. There are numerous trainers out there, but Don has really taken the time to understand the nuances of the Bar, clerking and chambers life generally. As a result, he is able to tailor his training to all levels: barristers, clerks, senior management and administrative staff. There is something for everyone and I can’t recommend him enough.
Looking at your future within our profession? I can highly recommend Don Turner at PME training. The one-to-one training sessions with Don have been one of the best investments in my career. If personal development is important to you, and your Chambers, then I fully recommend PME in the future.
Our Chambers have used Don repeatedly throughout the years for our staff training. From junior through to senior staff, Don has a great understanding of the roles within Chambers, and their unique challenges and pressures, which is so valuable in today’s environment. Personally, I have gained a huge amount from Don’s training and would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in honing their skills and establishing a better, more rounded version of themselves.
Old Square Chambers have worked with PME for the last 7 years, training both members and staff of all levels. It is delivered in a way that facilitates open discussion amongst peers which is instrumental to a positive learning experience. The content is excellent and is bespoke to a Chambers environment which adds considerable value. We look forward to continuing to work with PME in the future.
