Helen Matthews

Eastlands is part of BG plc. Over the years, I have been lucky enough to benefit from many training opportunities including management programmes at leading institutions, so my expectations and standards of comparison are high. In a previous role I have also had management responsibility for training and development and I am acutely aware of […]

Sonia Chandarana

On behalf of the team, I would like to take this opportunity to share our experience and feedback of the Managers Development Program Trainings that we had been for. Besides helping us introspect on our Leadership Styles, it will also help bring about profound change in the way we interact with our colleagues/teams. The knowledge […]

Russell Gasper

Just a quick note to express my thanks for the recent personal development courses which were run by Serene Communications. Although I did not attend the full suite of courses (I am not a manager, so only attended the Presentations, Decision Making, Effective Communications, & Time Management courses) I found these courses to be extremely […]

Sandeep Kuma Murgai

Janet Veitch

Serene Communications facilitated a focus meeting for the WNC’s Board of Commissioners, to help develop our strategic plans as the Government’s independent advisory body on women. The facilitator worked closely with the Chair and Director of the WNC to design and deliver a highly participative and interactive event that enabled everybody to have their say. […]

An enthusiastic, knowledgeable, widely-networked, capable and energetic woman with vision, dedication and drive. (Zarin Hainsworth)

Kevin Pattison

Zarin has coached and supported business owners in Marketing Strategy and Operations. I only have brief liaison with her, but know from watching her in action that she really knows how to apply marketing theory in small business practice.

Marco Milone

It has been and it continues to be an absolute pleasure to work with Zarin. Her sense of duty towards her responsibilities is second to none. She is a very dynamic and radiant person, detail orientated and she always assumes a posture of learning and self- reflection, indispensable qualities in a rapidly changing environment.

Counsel Andrea Friedman

Zarin is fantastic to work with and always goes above and beyond. Truly top notch organizer with a vast range of expertise on communications and gender and polity.

Leonie-Ruth Acland

Zarin is a powerhouse of ideas. Her clear communication and creative and visionary thinking regularly inspire others to action. She is able to synthesise the important aspects in group discussions and provide leadership with value added suggestions for concrete ways forward. Her contribution to any group she is a part of is highly respected and […]

Gurpreet Gulati

Zarin has been working with us for creating some customized courses. These courses turned out to be really high end and far ahead of the courses you get in the market. I can’t thank Zarin enough for the courses I’ve gone through and the people in my company are going through.

Michael Teske

I have found Zarin to be a persuasive communicator, adept at fostering strong client relationships, and skilled at training and managing diverse teams. Zarin is goal-oriented and performance driven, going the extra mile to add long-term value. She maintains high ethical standards, and I have full confidence in her abilities. Zarin is a true principle- […]

Concetta Knee

Zarin is an extremely erudite person who has an innate understanding of the world of communication. Having attended a Presentation by her on the subject of P.R. and Communications I came away with a much clearer understanding of what to aim for, how to achieve it and how to monitor results. I would have no […]

Maureen Sier

Zarin was an excellent facilitator and drew out the best from all the participants. Zarin also ably analysed the information gained during the workshops and feedback excellent recommendations which were useful for the organisation I worked for.

Francis Fenwick

When you work with Zarin you feel you are in the hands of a consummate professional who knows her business inside out. It was a pleasure to work with her and we were very pleased with the results.

Karen Wilson

I’d like to say what a complete “eye-opener” this day has been for me. I honestly didn’t realize there was so much to delegating, but now I feel like I’ve changed my approach from “the inside” at a cognitive level! From start to finish, the standard of venue and food was excellent, trainer Miranda Jenkins […]

Christophe Ferrari

I hereby would like to confirm the benefit of the two soft skills training that I recently attended (Time Mgt & Decision Making). They brought me ground information for improving my daily work thanks to technique and tools. This being said, it’s clearly a long term process to ensure that the learned material is effectively […]

Jessica Naish

Serene Communications has provided exceptional opportunities for the presentation of our theatre company’s work. Serene Communications is an organisation of integrity, making the seemingly impossible possible whilst maintaining the highest ethical standards. The Company’s strength in communicating with a quick sense of who needs to meet whom in order for a dream possibility to become […]

Ruth Soandro-Jones

Staff and volunteers at the SPACE Trust thoroughly enjoyed the varied programme that Serene Communications developed for their day ‘Team Building for Success’. Rarely do we have the opportunity to come together and work on communication and relationships. It is easy to work as a group rather than a team when we work part time […]

Richard Harrison

Since the away day (which was very useful) things have on the whole been going very well and yes many of the ideas that came out of it were actioned or are in the process of being actioned. The only limiting factor as always have been time and resources.

Timi Van Houten

The media course I attended was first class. The pace was just right with a good variety of whole group, pair work and individual learning. I was surprised how much we covered throughout the day and how much I learnt on the day. Everyone had the opportunity of hands on experience of TV and radio […]

Megan Wheatley

In July 2018, I was lucky enough to be able to speak at the United Nations, in a trip run by Serene Communications in partnership with NAWO. I had been chosen to speak at an event on FGM, on a panel with prestigious figures in the activism field who were all seeking to make a difference to those who were at risk of, or had already been subject to the horrifying practice of FGM. Serene Communications were extremely diligent and helpful in helping me to prepare for this event, as well as planning and carrying out the event in an extremely professional and organised manner. They provided assistance in the creation of my speech, and gave background information to the venue and the systems of the United Nations; thus allowing the speech to be directed at the right audience and be written in a style which the personnel I was addressing. Thank you very much for helping me in my preparation and execution of my speech, and all the other behind the scenes work that went into making sure I was as prepared and happy about delivering it as possible!
