I just want to say a huge personal thank you for the Watershed sessions over the last 5 weeks. Really informative and motivating. I have definitely come away with some great tools not only to manage others but importantly to manage myself. Something I’ve been hungry for lately.
Excellent stuff. Can’t wait to get on another course!
Say hi to Emma for me and catch you around.

Just wanted to say thank you again for a genuinely brilliant 5 days. I haven’t experienced much in the way of external training or courses over the last 13/14 years of work and find myself today incredibly focused and also wide open in terms of what I want to do and do for others, so thank you.

Watershed hurts in all the right places

Hi Emma and the 08:06 legends 😉
I just wanted to send an email in regards to the Watershed Training.
Emma – I came into this training not knowing what to expect but also with a view that the training was going to be similar to previous experiences. I cannot thank you enough for this positive and motivating experience I had, personally I have learnt and gained skills I previously thought I did not have. I now know with coaching from you Emma that if I apply myself I can achieve the goals I want in life, not only in my career but personally to. I thank you so much for sharing the work you do, and can honestly say its valuable. I hope our paths cross again in the not so distant future.
Legends – What can I say, what a pleasure to have this experience and share it with you all. You are all legends in my eyes and will cherish this time with you all alongside Emma for years to come!
Stay in touch

If you accept that your business is only as strong as the people working in it, and that by investing in your employees, you are likely to increase the profits of your business, then Watershed is an exceptional place to start.
From Will Beckett, co-founder, Hawksmoor, January 2008
I just wanted to thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable and illuminating 4 days.
This course was definitely one of the most useful and interesting courses I have ever done and considering you were competing against a 2 day beer tasting course you have clearly done something right 🙂
From Lucy Wood at Honest Burgers, March 2015
So as discussed last Friday, I had my interview on Monday. It went very well and I have just been advised that I am the new head chef !
I would just like to thank you for such an eye opening coaching experience at Watershed, I believe it has helped me immensely and has changed my perspective not just in my working life but also my personal life.
Once again thank you so much for everything, you made a difference!
From Charlie Newell at The Modern Pantry, February 2015
Firstly I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to making personal and professional progress on the course.
From Kama at Dishoom, January 2015
Hope you are well.
I just wanted to send across a thank you to yourself.
Since your course I’ve noticed changes in how I approach challenges both professionally and personally.
Some of the changes were immediate and some have developed over time with reflection on things which you taught.
I will continue to recommend Watershed to others and want to wish you continued success in what you are doing.
From Marc Brennan at Honest Burgers on 11 October 2014
I really enjoyed the course that I attended over the last 2 weeks. What I have learned is completely invaluable and I can’t thank you enough for making me more self aware as a manager. I think that your offering is absolutely exceptional and look forward to participating in the next.
From Beth Young at The Thomas Cubitt on 29 September 2014
Just a quick email to say I really enjoyed the course over the past five weeks, it’s definitely given me a lot to think about.

Thank you very much for the course, and for the time you spend with us. That was very educational and I hope I will use as much information I can from what you taught us.

Failed on Monday’s deadline to complete the Thinking Profile – have now done it! Apologies. It’s certainly NOT because I am not into it.
LOVING the course.
Sophie Bathgate, co-founder at Sophie’s Steakhouse on November 23rd 2012
Thanks for the notes from today. I have a folder that I have put all of these in. These are the first documents I have ever put in a personal folder. I have done this because I actually really want to. But you and you only have made a real difference in my management style and me as a person. I thank you! I mean it.
Come in for lunch at my place with your kids and ill show you fab time
