There is a lovely and apt old saying that runs: "If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it." Thus it is with Angela - despite her considerable workload of professional duties, she has been a veritable dynamo of activity for the Society in organising our Midlands region, and to great success. No small part of her success is in her tremendous ability to pull together people of very different personalities, characters, and working styles to act harmoniously for the common good. No doubt being a great Trainer helps with that too! I personally, and the Society more generally are very grateful for her ongoing support, dedication, and sheer volume of new ideas and activity.
Steve Huxham - The Recruitment Society
Angela is one of our most popular trainers and project managers. As an extremely competent completer/finisher and with a logical, process driven approach Angela manages complex projects with ease - and always beats the deadline! Her training style is thorough and engaging and she always gives the learner the extra support they need to be successful. Over the past 10 years Angela has developed a loyal 'fan base' within our customer population, as well as the loyal support and respect of her colleagues - not least of all me!
Fiona Lander - Lander Associates Ltd
I have worked alongside Angela on the Midlands Recruitment Society Committee for over 2 years.
In this time I have seen Angela's excellent organisational and managerial skills in action. Angela always remains positive and has a 100% can-do attitude and never lets anything take the smile off her face.
Angela is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Roma Aitken - The Recruitment Society
Angela has worked for The Arrows Group on several occasions throughout the last few years through Lander Associates. She has worked on either a one to one basis, coaching individuals within the company or with delivering training courses such as 'Planning sales for effective outcomes', 'The Candidate Cycle', 'The Client Cycle' and 'Live Sales'. The latter being a combination of classroom based training and then implementing the learning throughout the day, with calls to potential clients. Angela added an element of competition for the consultants, which ended up with them taking jobs on and client meetings booked with clients. This meant that when the opportunities created were converted, the course more than paid for itself."
Adrian Treacy - Arrows Group
My company CSC Recruitment hired Angela to train me in Recruitment as I am fairly new to the role.
The recruitment day consisted of lots of ideas from Angela on how to work with clients and candidates alike; how to approach different situations; how to close of deals; and how to be pro-active in my approach. These ideas were put into place through role plays and question and answer sessions, whilst we also went through some presentations Angela had put together for us.
To sum up, the day was really successful and I would definitely recommend Angela to other people in the Recruitment business whether new in the industry or experienced and she has some brilliant ideas!
Thanks for all your help!
Jasmine Orr - CSC Recruitment
I have experienced the quality of Angela's work when she was leading a training course I attended with Lander Associates. The enthusiasm she displayed was infectious and she is clearly very passionate about all matters recruitment. Her depth of knowledge has allowed me to take my career to the next level and the training provided will act as my bible going forward. Highly recommended professionally and a great lady to boot (not to kick, that would be wrong - I mean aswell!).
Jonathan Barrow - BrightPool
Excellent trainer, informative and always delivered in a clear and understandable format.
Craig Crighton - ReThink Group
My experience of Angela is that she is a great communicator with a high level of professionalism and integrity, she always goes the extra mile to deliver an outstanding service. She is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise and can always be relied upon to provide excellent service.
Colin Sewell - CSP Technical Recruitment
Following 2 days of training with Angela, I have been very impressed by her technical ability around business to business sales strategy. I also found here approach very organised, detailed and methodical. I would thoroughly recommend her services and hope to work with her again in future.
Steve Doyle - Recruit4Talent
Angela was one of the lead consultants that delivered recruitment training to ReThink Recruitment and therefore myself.
I found Angela to be extremely engaging and felt that her teachings have provided me with a framework to pursue my career in recruitment in a very professional, ethical and entrepreneurial manner.
I would recommend Angela to anyone who feels that recruitment is not just transactional! I found her experience and methodologies invaluable.
Matt Worsley - ReThink Recruitment
Angela has worked with our business to help us put together a very structured and detailed training programme. Angela always delivers and has her own inimitable style to make sure that we uphold our end of the bargain! Highly recommended.
Mark Barnicoat - Oasis HR
Angela has given me invaluable support and training in setting up my social media links for my company. She has made this whole new experience manageable for a novice. Thank you!
November 2, 2011, Katherine was with another company when working with Angela at Lander Consultancy
Katherine Wheatley - Bumblegreen Books
Angela has a keen eye for the individual needs of each and every one in her training courses. She easily identifies the qualities and areas for development of each person and delivers a truly tailored training solution for each individual, which, in my experience has led to an immediate improvement in results. Additionally, Angela's follow up and interpersonal skills are excellent. Highly recommended
Liam McFadden - Kaskal Executive
I have just returned from a 2 day workshop with Angela and want to thank her for the most motivational two days that I have ever experienced. The techniques that I have learned are simple yet extremely effective and I have already started to use them. I cannot recommend Angela and the courses provided by Lander Associates enough!
Michael Rollett - Regional Recruitment Services
An exceptional trainer, splendid communication skills. Genuine results. My team REALLY bought into Angela.
Graham Martin - Orchard Recruitment
Angela's work for us at TH Associates has been first class. Her skill in building the concept, to producing the final programme for a recent new recruit has been superb. Our new recruit has settled in very well. The programme prepared is being followed, which has in turn given us all real focus; and the results are already showing! Having written up a job specification, placed an advert, undertaken some searching and successfully matched 4 candidates against it. Our new recruit is a real superstar in the making - largely down to Angela and her adept skills in setting learning programmes!
Clive Todd - THA Recruitment
Angela has been hired on a couple of occasions to work for Arrows Group Healthcare division and we have plans to continue to use her to help develop the team and all new staff coming through. The feedback I have received has been highly positive and motivating. When Angela first set up the initial course she was keen to understand our needs and what we wished to achieve from the training. Overall the training has been positive and has started achieve the results we were looking for. I'm very pleased with the service and I would be happy to recommend Angela and Lander Associates.
Rangeeta Bhamra - Arrows Group Healthcare
I was lucky enough to have Angela as our expert trainer on her "Quarterly Business Plan" course - and thought that she was excellent. Her training gave me great ideas to take away into the real world and her training style was very down-to-earth and engaging. I would definitely recommend Angela to my peers.
Richard Bloom - Purple Consultancy
Angela was first introduced to us back in 2003 having engaged Lander Associates as a training partner to RGB. Angela was a key member of their highly experienced training team and was instrumental in providing us with an excellent development program for all our consultants. Having experienced Angela's training sessions first hand I can testify to their effectiveness having seen the direct results reflected not only in my own performance, but also in that of my team members and colleagues. Angela always made her sessions interesting and had the ability to engage all delegates and retain their attention. I have remained in contact with Angela over the subsequent years and am pleased to see how her career has gone from strength to strength.
Graeme Lingenfelder - RGB Group
I have worked with Angela as a trainer on a couple of occasions, firstly with Blue Arrow back in 2002 on a Perms Workshop and secondly as a service provider at Lander Associates. Having been trained by Angela way back in 2002 she had excellent knowledge with a high level of integrity and when I requested her time outside of the classroom environment to discuss specific training needs she took the time and gave me some really great advice which I really valued. As a service provider Angela has been very detailed in her pre-course work and given me the most thorough feedback for a Consultant, which enabled me to take the training and development through to the next stage of desk training. I would happily recommend Angela Cripps and Lander Associates to any recruitment business looking to use a really thorough training company who offer excellent value for money.
Angela Ashwell - Blue Arrow
Angela is an excellent trainer, knowledgeable, personable and has the ability to pace the session to suit the whole group.
Should she offer further training of interest/value to me, I would not hesitate to attend. I am considering her courses for newer members of my team.
Richard Edmondson - Volt (Europe)
Angela is an accomplished trainer with years of personal recruitment experience to draw from. Her approach is lively and interesting and she relates well to our Consultants at all levels. She was able to adjust the training programme to suit our needs and consulted with all the staff individually to ensure she was aware of their personal objectives before delivering the training. I would have no hesitation in recommending Angela as a trainer.
Gemma Skillett - Blue Pelican
I have attended training courses provided by Lander Associates and held by Angela Cripps. She is one of the greatest training professionals I have ever met! She is highly skilled, dedicated and energetic. Tailoring the training especially for us, recruiters, she was highly attentive and reactive to our needs. Working with Angela is not only beneficial, but fun as well! Good luck Angela and best wishes: Beata
Beata Manczur - Arthur Hunt
I have used Angela for a number of training courses over the past two years and found her to be a fantastic trainer and coach. She engages very well with all levels of delegate and displays a deep knowledge of the Recruitment market. Always personable and engaging, Angela delivers tangible results and our employee feedback has always been positive about her.
Guy Franklin - TMP Worldwide UK
Angela has worked with ourselves on a number of projects. Every time we engage with Angela I know we will get 100% and a great end product. She is one of the most organised people I've worked with and always goes the extra mile to get the job done.
James Calder - Macildowie
To whom it may concern,
I could not recommend Angela more highly. Professional and approachable; blessed with superb communication skills to seemingly combat any scenario I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Excellent value and delivered way beyond her brief.
Good luck Angela - you will deserve it as you always put in the hard work to earn it.
Gerard Gibson - ITHR
Angela is a first class Training Professional, whom I heartily recommend to any Recruitment business. She is a true expert in her field and is both patient and calm. You feel at ease whether you are new to recruitment or a hard core sales professional.
As a delegate you can expect a pre-call to determine your training needs and a follow up call to make sure you grasped the subject. The subject matter is conveyed as a blended mix and involves exercises, role plays, hand-outs, workbooks and a manual.
Richard Bruce - RGB Group & THA Recruitment
Working with Angela helped me to truly focus on the business in hand and appreciate the time taken to effectively plan ahead. Her training was excellent with a huge amount of tips and ideas that have helped me to structure my desk in order to capitalise on more business and to decide where to channel my efforts - Marvellous!
Wayne A.L. Tritton - EuroLondon Appointments
Thanks for the great day yesterday. I felt it was the best sales course that I have attended to date. I'm looking forward to the other modules.
Steven Bergin - Blue Arrow
Angela is solely responsible for my career in recruitment as she was the hiring Manager who deemed me fit enough to manage my first desk...crazy fool!
In all seriousness, Angela is a very motivated and highly intelligent person who has a very open and direct approach and who always takes time to understand someone's issues and obviously likes to impart her wisdom through training. I would say that throughout my career I have always looked back to the time I spent with her with fondness and admiration. Thanks Angela
