“Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received. ”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“Gillian goes above and beyond, she is very responsive to the whole team and delivers outstanding work. ”
“The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.”
“When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.”
