“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
“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.”
“PSGS were overall more professional than others.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
