We receive many endorsements and testimonials from our students and their employers who have been delighted with the courses that they have taken and the support that they have received. This is just a small selection of the many endorsements that we have received over the years from both students and employers:
Many thanks. I gained some valuable takeaways from both training courses I have recently attended, Contract Management and Improving Negotiation Skills. It was a pleasure to meet you and also gain an insight into your experience as a procurement buyer. Am looking forward to attending future courses.

Kent CIPS Branch 'Funky' Negotiation Talk
Just wanted to say thank you very much for the excellent "funky" presentation last night. I could see that everyone was riveted and the feedback was very positive, best event of the year most said.

Since joining the procurement department in 2012, Chris Vranch, Contract Manager expressed a keenness to develop his knowledge and skills in procurement and in particular, develop himself via professional qualifications.
As the professional route was determined to be the most beneficial for both Chris and the organisation it was agreed that Chris would enrol and study for his Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) qualification.
Chris has passed both the Diploma and Advanced Diploma, and is now studying for his Professional Diploma, which he aims to complete in early 2016.
Since undertaking his CIPS qualification the increase in both Chris’ ability and confidence has been noticeable, which is reflected in not only how he projects himself both within his own department but also throughout the organisation in his day-to-day communication and engagement with his wider organisational colleagues.
Whilst some of this increase in confidence and ability is attributable to general day-to-day activity and challenges it is also clear that a considerable amount is directly attributable to the facilitation events Chris has attended at Neil Fuller Associates on a weekly basis since 2013. Chris has found these events informative, though provoking and relevant to his day-to-day responsibilities resulting in increased performance from Chris that is beneficial for all parties.
Alison Parker - Head of Procurement
NF Associates have supported me through my professional qualification journey; they have been a constant help and source of encouragement over my ten year journey. This started with the original Foundation and then Professional Stage examinations in the early 2000s. I then attended their first Masters cohort in Procurement and Supply Chain 2013-4, which was informative, enjoyable and a great benefit to my career.
The environment is both supportive and stretching to allow the greatest success; I always found the group teaching a superb learning experience. NF Associates have facilitated my professional learning journey and I look forward to seeing their success for the future. The qualifications I have received have been recognised internationally and have helped me to develop my career in a very competitive market; I would recommend Neil and the team to anyone who is interested in progressing their career.

Jennifer Jones MCIPS - Senior Buyer
Just writing a brief letter to say thanks for the recent training that you have provided and the help and support Neil Fuller Associates have given to myself and my procurement staff over the years both with their CIPS studies and in general.
Certainly a spring board to my own career through the ranks of CIPS, my MSc and cementing my FCIPS accreditation.
Kevin Williams - Senior Director of Purchasing & Supply Chain
Now the final exam result is in, I wanted to express my thanks to you and your team for the excellent learning experience that I have been privileged to receive over the last, almost, three years. This is a testimony to both the quality of the teaching and the extensive resources that are made available to every student. May I wish you and your team every success in the future.
