    Rob Allinson - RA IT Consultancy

  • “Comfortable building and facilities, lunch restrictive, would prefer a choice or sandwiches. Apart from lunch it has been an excellent experience. I can quite honestly say that Michelle is the best trainer I've ever had and it is no wonder she has been recognised as a top trainer! Her delivery style is brilliant and she managed to keep my attention all week. She is extremely knowledgeable and her ability constantly to refer to past experience to more fully explain something has really helped.”

    Lynda Howard - CSC

  • “The IT programme board convened on Wednesday and we had a lengthy discussion on ITIL . . and I can confirm that the [Sysop] overview session had an extremely positive impact. [Mark] was impressed with the feedback and has authorised me to approach our European and Middle East IT Managers to canvas opinion on them formally entering into ITIL qualifications to support the programme, something I think he wasn't contemplating for another twelve months. [We] now recognise some of the gaping holes we have and why, despite all the effort, things simply aren't working; [we need] to know more. Based on this, I think you can safely say that our overview was a success, Michelle was brilliant I have to say, she knew exactly how to handle the team. ”

    Andrew Wallace - Lavendon Group

  • “I have just recieved my results from the online link ISEB has sent to me and just wanted to share the good news. I have passed the exam with a 36 score. Pass my thanks to everyone I really enjoyed my training at Sysop and hopefully we will meet again when you visit Abu Dhabi.”

    Ossama Elshafie - Etisalat U.A.E

  • “I'd like to thank Sysop for another great course. (Service Operation) John (Allder) did an excellent job in delivery and I look forward to the next one (although I'll wait to see my exam result before booking anything!) The exam was tougher than I'd expected but fingers crossed I've come through it! ”

    Jon Williams - SISRA

  • “Hi Michelle I just wanted to extend my thanks for the ITIL V3 Foundation training session you delivered this week. The course content was excellent and you delivered it in a manner which made it easy to understand; I was very impressed with both SYSOP and you. Hopefully I will pass the exam (I did find the questions tougher than the mocks) and I will look to do some more ITIL modules which are more specific to my role as a Service Desk Manager. Thanks again, your help was much appreciated. ”

    Greg Spanner - CMS Group Ltd

  • “I just wanted to say a big thank you for guiding me through the v3 bridging course….I remember our last conversation before leaving the building saying that in the nicest possible sense I don't want to see you again for a while !! (i.e. no resits) :-) I've just been emailing Adam Sawle re the course…..I actually found that the exam was very fair and as far as I could tell you'd covered off everything within the paper. Like you said, if you read the question paper carefully and know the material, and take your time in the exam then it is not unachievable (I'm living proof…I'm certainly not an academic, and I even had to resit one of my papers once in v2 years ago). A tick in the box for me thanks to you….really appreciate it. ”

    Jonathan Armitage - Hampshire Police

  • “We've made note of over 45 action points on the basis of this (OSA) course. Excellent course, run by a trainer who knew the subject in depth and added numerous examples from her own work experience.”

    Gary Devaney - United Biscuits

  • “Many thanks for the excellent ITIL3 Managers Bridge course. I've just had the exam results and have passed (17/20) - your help during the course played an important part in this success.”

    Gerry Gough - Hewlett-Packard

  • “Dear Stuart. Just a quick note of appreciation as I received my results for the V2 manager’s exams yesterday and achieved distinction in both papers. I am absolutely delighted with this achievement, and have to say it is primarily a result of the quality of the course and the ability of the trainers. Both John and Andy did a brilliant job, and are a real credit to your organisation. If anyone had told me after week one that I would go on to achieve a distinction I would have thought them mad, but John and Andy persevered with me and the results speak for themselves. It is my opinion that an organisation’s heart is it’s people, and John and Andy (and the admin staff) ensured that my learning experience was one of the most rewarding, if challenging I have ever had. Please pass on my appreciation to all your staff.”

    Oliver Plumpton - Durham Constabulary

  • “Michelle did an excellent job this morning. My objective was to raise the level of understanding so that my senior managers could sensibly debate how we can use ITIL. Michelle exceeded my expectation. She spoke with clear authority, worked well with my team and explained the practical application of ITIL in a way that we could comfortably relate to. In three hours Michelle moved our big question from "why should we do ITIL?" to "Why would we not want to?".”

    Chris Goodbourn - Intellectual Property Office

  • “The group exercises were enjoyable and the closed questions are very useful exam preparation - Excellent course. Content and delivery were really first rate. The course is very intensive. However, lots of support from Andy and John. I am grateful and hope to continue to prepare for exam success. ”

    Oliver Plumpton - Durham Constabulary

  • “Thanks to all at Sysop for the Managers ITIL course. - John - Andy - and Janet for such excellent training that I got a distinction in both papers and of course to Janice and all the support staff who made the training run so smoothly. ”

  • “I just want to thank you all, and especially to Michelle for making such a vast information so easily understandable and applicable to real life experiences. I am very pleased with my results and if in the future I decided to improved my qualifications in ITIL I know where to go. Also, I will have no doubt in recommend yourselves to any of my colleagues or peers.”

    Eduardo Puchol - Hesketh Fletcher High School & Humanities College

  • “I take it we all passed ... yippeeeeee. I honestly couldn't believe it when I got the results, I found the exam really tough and was convinced I hadn't passed so it was a real confidence boost to get the result. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and fed this back to my boss straight away. Thank you ever so much for all your support and such great training style. ”

    Angie Walker - Telindus

  • “As I said on the first day of the course. Pass or Fail is largely down to the quality of the teaching. Ours was clearly excellent”

    Howard Miles - Aggregate Industries

I'll probably stop smiling sometime next week!”
