“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
“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.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“The Trustee Training course is very good. Excellent coverage of material presented in an easy-to-digest manner and quality of presentation by both presenters. ”
“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
