Over 5 years now, B&D is our loyal supplier for trainings in soft skills and time management.B&D is working tailor made for all our trainings as our employees - active in clinical research - are working in such a specific environment.The 2 days communication skills – immersion training is a real success. Almost all our junior employees had this training. It is not only about the communication styles; the trainer will make you search for your own communication style and give you tools to practice and to improve your communication skills. After the first day already, the participants are able to apply what they have learned. During the second day experiences and successes are shared to further build on.

Also our in company training time and stress management is tailor made. In the preparation phase the trainer has an intake interview to analyze the needs and expectations of the participants. This results in an almost hands on training where diaries, tasks and barriers are examined and approached! Moreover, one will look on how some of the tips and tricks also can be applied in the daily life of the participants to positively influence their work-life balance. During the follow-up the participants have the opportunity to exchange experiences. Difficult situations that did not go well will be further looked at to see how to go about it in a different way to make them a success!

B&D is also specialized in personal coaching. During a coaching trajectory the coach and coachee will determine some clear action plans / personal growth plan to find his/her way (back) to an efficient working method.

Many thanks to B&D for so much expertise!

Every year we appeal to B&D for our soft skills trainings (open sessions). The B&D trainers are real experts. Per course we offer both a Dutch and French session.To ensure the long term effectiveness of the trainings the participants receive monthly reminders by e-mail. B&D is doing this very precisely. The practical organization is going perfect, they stick to all agreements and the syllabi/training manuals are delivered in time.

Argenta is growing, and both the number of employees as the quality/service of the Argenta bank network and head office are increasing too. For several years now we organize trainings with B&D to develop the leadership skills/competencies of our bankers and management. The trainers of B&D are closely involved in the preparation phase, they integrate Argenta’s particular instruments in their trainings, they make sure of an in-depth program, and their courses are approached in a highly active and interactive manner. After the training the results will be discussed and we receive immediate formal and informal feedback of the trainer. The trainings are highly appreciated by the Argenta bank network and the employees of the head office.

A few years ago, B&D became the regular partner for the soft skills training programs organized by the European Center for Clinical Research Training (www.eccrt.com). Our participants are always full of praise for the trainers, their approach and the way they deliver the training. The collaboration with B&D works smoothly and in a pleasant atmosphere.

Horeca Vorming Vlaanderen organizes some 100 free classes for anyone working in the hospitality business ( Joint Sectoral Committee 302). As we want to give our trainees the best possible chance to succeed, we rely on the expertise of external training companies, such as B&D. It also matters to us that that these companies should have an affinity with the hospitality business, because we want these training programs to be as close as possible to the professional environment of the participants. As such, B&D is our valued partner in the delivery of communication training. There is no doubt in our minds that our trainees are in expert hands when taking a B&D training course!

Since several years, B& D is our trusted training partner, on whom we rely to develop personal development training programs for our staff. Some of these programs are intended for our new hires and are part of the Sogeti Academies. There, we alternate in-house technical training with soft skills training by B&D: communication skills, presentation skills and preparing intakes. We also offer a wide range of training programs to our more senior staff: consecutive courses that together make up an individually designed career development path. B&D gears its training solutions to the specific needs of our IT staff and reflects with us on how to make our training offer even better. B&D regularly assesses their solutions and makes suggestions to fine-tune courses. We feel the evaluations by our staff are always taken to heart. In the meantime, the B&D trainers have become familiar faces. B&D trainers are flexible and show a keen interest in the participants. Their approach suits the audience and meets the needs of our organization.
