“I would like to say a great big thank you for the excellent training we received over the last two weeks. I have had positive feedback from our staff and, I would like to thank Denny for making the training so interesting. Some days when you have already done a long shift, the thought of having to train until 9pm can be quite daunting. Denny make the evening enjoyable and interesting. 
I hope to be able to use Coates again in the future to further train the staff in other areas.”

          — With kindest regards, Kerry Murphy, Nursery Manager
