Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for the training day last Friday. I'm very excited about starting my new business - the day enthused me further and gave me so many snippets of information that I feel much more confident about my venture. I will be taking advantage of the offers given on Friday, most likely taking the silver package.
Again, thank you for the day, it was delivered professionally and in a relaxed and friendly manner which I enjoy immensely.
Massive thanks to the guys at Spinaclean and to both Paul and Steve for a well thought out and presented training day. I attended the training day on Friday 21st October and was not left disappointed. To anybody starting out in this industry then this course is a must. You will receive expert advice and knowledge covering topics such as quoting jobs, health and safety, marketing and promoting your business right through to handling all aspects of the wide range of products Spinaclean offer.
One thing I will say is that never at any one time did I feel that this was a sales pitch. Although I did invest in the Gold package along with several accessories I was only ever informed of the products and had my many questions answered. I have since had several phone calls and emails from the team and have also had a few products thrown in to my purchase as a good will gesture to get me on my way.
I left the course motivated and confident that my business could work and felt ready to take the plunge. I got everything I hoped to from this day plus much much more.
