    We’re proud to announce that Agil8 has been selected as winners of the Focus on Training Quality Award 2015. Focus on Training surveys all of its delegates to help support/ensure the delivery of high levels of customer satisfaction. This results in a unique database that enables the benchmarking of performance of many training delivery specialists with analysis across a range of popular course categories. Agil8 achieved some of the highest scores of all providers consistently over a period of 2 years and has been awarded accordingly. FOCUS Business Development Director, Rex Gibson, identifies the common characteristics of the training partners who consistently gain the best feedback.  “It’s all about trainers with the depth of knowledge and enthusiasm to inspire others. Trainers need practical real world experience. They also need to understand how to communicate in fresh and stimulating ways” Everyone here at agil8 would like to thank all our delegates for providing such great feedback. We pride ourselves on having some of the most inspiring and experienced Agile trainers around, and we’re very excited to be recognised in this way with Focus on Training’s Quality Award for 2015.
