Janet has helped me to develop a greater understanding of sales and marketing both on a 1:1 basis and through her training course. She explains key concepts in a clear, easy to understand manner and has helped me to understand how to better focus my marketing activities to raise my profile and increase sales.

Denise Chester, Owner – Hormone Health Solutions
Janet has created a fantastic sales course that I have spent the last two days attending. Her delivery is excellent; she is friendly, understanding and supportive; the course content was relevant, interesting, easy to understand and full of practical tools that can be implemented immediately.
Janet has the ability to deliver the right amount of info in the right amount of time; I didn’t get bored or lose concentration and the interactive element of the course helps to keep you engaged throughout.
I would highly recommend working with Janet and I will absolutely be attending future courses that she runs. Thanks Janet!

Barbara Johnson, Little Gem, Organo Gold
I have been on 3 courses provided by Janet at Tadpole Training and all I can say is, if you want an experienced, no-nonsense trainer that has years of great experience, skills and knowledge then you need to go on one of her courses.
Janet will make the things you find hard to do simple to do, She will unconsciously take you to the next level of your own personal development or in your business. If you want to be the best, learn from the best.

The course was very good, the best bit being how to add content to my LinkedIn page. Educational and inspiring. Value for money!

Philip Rock, Photographer
The best thing about the training was that it broadened my imagination and gave me extra ideas/devices for “disguising” how I sell. I think I will have a much better selling strategy or “real strategy”. The thing that will help me the most is those devices aimed at obtaining referrals and/or testimonials from past customers. I am very grateful for the opportunity to benefit from Tadpole Training.
Philip Rock, Photographer February 19, 2016
Margaret Giller, MS Society Barnet
Janet has the ability to teach even the most IT novice abilities to get involved. At least I now have the knowledge of how to access LinkedIn and to start using it. I was very happy with the training I received and I would be happy to receive another session.

I attended a sales course with Janet and it was so useful. Lots of useful concepts to use and absolutely no pushy sales techniques. I recommend her courses.

Sharon Parker, Arbonne Independent Consultant
Janet from Tadpole Training is an experienced and engaging trainer. She has a passion for her craft and is able to give clear and effective guidance for self-starters with little sales experience or those a bit shy of this side of business development. I Highly recommend Tadpole’s services.
Sharon Parker, Arbonne Independent Consultant February 19, 2016
I decided to go on Janet’s training because, although I can talk to people easily, I was struggling to get them to sign up to my packages – they would agree, but wouldn’t actually sign on the dotted line. Also I didn’t want to be pushy and Janet doesn’t ‘do’ pushy. I came away with lots of ideas and now I know you have to ask the right questions, because if your customers are interested then they will say ‘yes’.
I am also much more confident at negotiating price.
I would definitely recommend this course (and I already have!). It’s so difficult to know how to sell when you are a new business starting out – you’re not taught how to do it at school.
The thing that has made a real difference is Janet’s closing techniques. I now have a technique to use, so I know exactly what to say to customers to get to a ‘yes’ – AND IT WORKS!
Anita Busby, Gold Medal Tuition February 19, 2016
Emma Jordan, Carlito’s Tints
The best thing about the course was how to think through the sales process and building my confidence by learning about sales techniques. The thing that will help me the most is closing – I will implement what I learned straight away. This was a great course with interesting people and a wonderful teacher.

Cosmas Sylvans, Owner, Sylvaoak Apps
Janet is very detailed in her training, she makes it very easy for any one to comprehend.
Having attended one of her training sessions, I can categorically say the environment was relaxed and interesting. As a result, I have developed this new confidence I did not know existed within me, on how to critically approach a potential client and close a deal, after attending her “I am not a Salesperson” training.
I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Tadpole Training enabled me to remove the fear/worrying out of selling my business to customers. I also gained the confident to talk to customers about my business. Janet training helps you to learn the most important lesson in business that (If you fail to plan, you plan to fail).

Anura Tennekoon, Santmar Digital Marketing
I attended Janet’s training ‘I’m not a Salesperson’ in March and I would recommend everyone to go on it. She gave me a valuable insight into selling – it was motivating and a great refresher too. When it comes to sales and selling, it is a broad topic but Janet made it simple. I especially valued the role plays, which helped make everything stick and the fact that there is follow up, so just because the course stops, we don’t – we continue to improve.
Janet’s style is very learner orientated, highly interactive and I was particularly impressed that she pro-actively changed things around to address the specific requirements of delegates.
Give yourself a treat and let Janet sort out your selling problems!
Anura Tennekoon, Santmar Digital Marketing February 19, 2016
Andy Chamberlain, Mediamen
Janet is known as an experienced sales trainer, but actually she is so much more than that. She can certainly captivate an audience with her simple but inciteful training, but it is really only when you dig a bit deeper you realise what a broad range of knowledge she has on any matters to do with selling, marketing or business development.
I have been on her short course and even though I have a good knowledge of marketing already, I picked up so many practical and relevant tips. Do yourself a favour, get to know Janet and Tadpole Training and you will not regret it (neither will your sales figures!)
Andy Chamberlain, Mediamen February 19, 2016
Thegz Savvides, Manager at Loving Social Media
I recently attended Janet’s “I’m not a Sales Person” course, and boy was it helpful! Working in marketing, I’m great at getting people to contact me, but closing the sale was always hard. Building rapport is super important, but I didn’t know how to get the trickier customers on board. Janet has helped build my confidence in sales – and my closing rate! If you don’t know about the sales funnel – you need to talk to Janet! She’s a great teacher and I would recommend this course for anyone who needs that little bit of extra help when trying to get a sale.

Michele Attias, Business Coach, Freelance Writer and Blogger
Janet was amazing at presenting the selling with ease training to all of us at Damsels In Success. She gave a confident presentation that had us all connected and interactive in the process. I know that through Janets training I am more self assured in the selling process and I would recommend Janet highly – Take her training courses, you will not regret it, in fact you will notice your selling capability take off..

Simon Arnold – Business Line Insurance Services Limited
I can safely say…… Janet from Tadpole has again provided some much needed training to our new sales team members. Her delivery method is reassuring and she works with each delegate to make sure they understand the training and development guidance being provided. There are already positive signs within our office, with a couple of refined processes now in place, put forward by the team members who recently attended the Tadpole Training course. As we grow our new team members will all receive sales training from Janet, regardless of their experience, as the courses available are tailored to suit the delegates’ (and their employers’) needs.

Joe Vargas – Enfield Council
Over a career spanning more than 25 years delivering sales and customer service solutions across both private and public sector organisations, have I rarely seen, heard or come across a trainer that’s galvanised my intention as Janet Efere has, founder of Tadpole Training. Like most people in a sales or communications, listening can be a struggle. Once you hit the 30 minute mark without a point being reached, you’ve lost me.
Janet’s 15/20 minute delivery, including a Q&A session had us all riveted with an approach that lends itself to all manner of sales environments, succinctly delivered with an unquestioning relevance that we all felt some synergy with. Well done Janet, let me know when’s the next one.
Joe Vargas – Enfield Council February 19, 2016
Jules Mulcahy – Sales Training for the Novice

Gemma Kennedy – Kennedy Consultancy Services Ltd
I attended a Tadpole training “I’m not a Sales person” course & found it very very helpful. As a small business Consultancy owner myself, I did find it difficult making those sales with new clients. Tadpole’s tips for closing a sale were very effective. I look forward to putting my learning into practice! Thank you Tadpole training!

Michelle Eshkeri, Owner Parent Partner
I recently attended a two day training course with Janet Efere of Tadpole Training. This training course was called Selling for Non-Salespeople and it covered lots of great information, techniques and tools for those people that really don’t have a selling background and are maybe a bit clueless about how to convert enquiries into paying customers, but with this information and expertise from Janet i really do feel much more able to close out on deals and to charge a fair price for my services.

Mel Tadhunter – Owner, We Network and More Business Network
I just wanted to send you a quick email to personally thank-you for the impact you have had on both MBN & WeNetwork.
Since you have joined, many members have commented on how you have helped them with sales in their own businesses. In fact two are actually adamant that without you valued help, they would not have won contracts.
In this aspect you are a very valued member of both networks, you not only support members individually, but also share priceless information to overcome some of their business challenges.
I cannot wait to attend your course next month and feel honoured that you have named it after me! You of course have already given me some factors on helping potential clients on making their minds up by asking the right questions. These client’s probably may not have joined if it wasn’t for you advice.

Gail Hugman, Teaching Specialist and Life Mentor at LessonsAlive
I recently attended Janet’s course called ‘I’m not a Salesperson!’ after it was recommended to me by a friend who had been on an earlier course with Tadpole Training. Janet quickly identified and analysed my underlying reluctance and fears regarding selling and in fact, completely redefined the way I think about it. In two days I have learnt to be price confident, to understand how to present my work to prospective clients and how to interact in a way that will encourage engagement. Janet clearly loves the selling process and delivers with extensive knowledge, understanding, sensitivity and creativity. This was a wholly enjoyable and strengthening process and I have no hesitation in recommending Janet and Tadpole Training to others.

British Education Network, Nigeria – Tonye Dokubo, Manager
Janet was a driving force behind our formal launch. She organised everything – trained us on customer service skills, telephone techniques, managing queries and enquiries, designed brochures, posters and even the layout of the Reception area. She went out on the streets with us handing out fliers, did radio shows, networked – everything. If she is on your side you cannot lose! But the main thing is that she showed us how to do simple things that got more business. More power to your elbow!
British Education Network, Nigeria – Tonye Dokubo, Manager February 19, 2016
Barbara Gare, Grammar for Business
I have experienced several of Janet’s training sessions, varying from half an hour to a whole day and she always meets her objectives. Her knowledge seems to be endless and she is able to convey that knowledge to others in a very interesting and fun way. Her training sessions are very enjoyable and by the end of each one, she has not only shared invaluable information but has usually integrated an interactive element allowing each person to try out what they have learned. Janet provides excellent training in all sales and related subjects at very competitive prices and I would thoroughly recommend her for all levels of training.

Edmonton United Football Club -Rickey Nelson, Club founder.
Janet has reworked so many of our procedures and processes to ensure that we can continue to deliver brilliant fun football to our existing young people, but also attract new players.
A really important task she helped us with was getting our club approved as a Charter Standard club, which she made seem easy (it wasn’t!). She is very approachable and has a wealth of marketing and sales knowledge and I would totally recommend her.

Dr Kay Dudman, Owner – Crafty Cavy
I have seen Janet Efere deliver training in group sessions as well as providing one-to-one individual advice. As a speaker, Janet is encouraging and motivational, guiding her audience on a voyage of discovery, helping them overcome any feelings of self-doubt to understand what they are able to achieve. I am impressed by Janet’s inclusive approach, making sure each member of a group is engaged and has the opportunity to participate and benefit from the session. In a one-to-one context, Janet is able to make suggestions and recommendations about how to proceed (for example, in a sales environment) in a supportive and positive way so that it seems obvious – because she pinpointed the solution! Not only does Tadpole Training offer Institute for Sales and Marketing Management (ISMM) level 3 qualifications, they have recently become an accredited Growth Adviser for the government Growth Vouchers initiative. Janet herself is a Fellow of the ISMM. I am delighted to recommend Tadpole Training as I know that clients receive a friendly and professional service that will help their business move forward to success.
