Matt Jackson from Compact Learning recently led our practice away day. The event was well organised and managed and the staff felt it was worth the time invested. Matt was knowledgeable and his input on the day was invaluable for the team

  - Sukhi Ghattaora, Manager, Sunrise Medical Practice

Matt Jackson from Compact Learning, who came to give the training, managed to keep the interest and provoke questions from many of us. He kept it flowing and interjected some light-hearted banter, but most gratifying was that he made it understandable to all the staff. He demonstrated and explained everything clearly. There was enough equipment for all the staff to practice on and he made sure that they all received some attention. He gave our new secretary who had never done this before a one to one run through and made sure she understood the basics. Even the Doc’s learned something!! … To sum up Matt delivered a well thought out and professional service. All our staff gained important knowledge and all of them said they would remember it as it was delivered in a friendly and relaxed fashion. … We will be using Compact Learning again and will definately recommend them to our colleagues.
