" Having worked with Paul over a decade on a key succession planning leadership and management programme at the University of Manchester, I've been most impressed by his unique perceptions on human presentation and interaction skills, which he's been most keen to use to the benefit of individuals. His ability to get individuals to reflect on their motives and presentation of self in tricky instances, moving on to consider how best they could 'resolve' conflict - either inner or external, is most incisive and impressive. His own personal commitment to CPD over the years allows him to draw on a range of techniques which can assist individuals or groups of individuals achieve greater self awareness and self actualisation. I commend him to you."

''I have known and worked with Paul Dixon for two years as co-members of a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy Training Group. During that time I have observed Paul facilitating group sessions, delivering presentations and listened to his respectful contributions to the training group. Paul is a confident and participative presenter who generates interest and involvement in the training group. He has an open and flexible style which draws out the contributions of others, helps build their confidence and ties contributions together in a coherent way. Paul designed and delivered an excellent workshop on Transactional Analysis ideas in Leadership and Management to Manchester Branch CIPD members which I coordinate as Learning and Development Group Leader. He diligently answered questions which were aligned with their individual business needs. I look forward to hosting another of Paul's events in 2016.''

''Paul played an important role in supporting our team through a major transformation project over two years. He worked with me and other leaders to help to clarify our mission and strategy. He also designed and led events to engage the wider team in the project and help to turn our strategy into operational priorities and individual objectives. In delivering this programme, Paul planned and led workshops addressing complex issues like “culture change” “customer service” and “team-building”, ran a bespoke five-session development programme for managers in the team and organised - and sometimes personally delivered - coaching and mentoring for individual team members. Paul is an experienced and insightful trainer and coach with a professional, but relaxed and friendly manner. He has helped to organise some of the most effective and enjoyable training that I have ever participated in and he has become a trusted source of advice and support for me and our whole team as he has supported us on this journey.”
