DEVA coaching and training – making a real difference to real people.

We work with individuals, businesses and the third sector organisations to help them communicate and network effectively.

We like “Likes”. Here are some examples of the feedback we receive:

Business support

"Jill's coaching sessions were of great value - working alone can leave you feeling that you are getting nowhere at times. Jill has the ability to help you see where you are headed and find the solution to move forward."

Elizabeth Cairns, Franchise Owner, The Creation Station

Professional and Personal Coaching

"I have never previously undertaken career coaching but having come to a professional impasse, was persuaded. Whilst I knew what it was I wanted to do, it was not clear to me how I'd achieve that. An hour's coaching with Jill made me realise exactly how to achieve my goals methodically - and what barriers (hitherto unseen) were preventing me achieve them. Jill's talent is to provide subtle guidance until you reach a point of self-realisation with regards to the issues blocking you. This has been quality time which has subsequently saved me much time and effort and provided me with a greater sense of confidence to achieve my goals. Highly recommended."

K.B., Glasgow

"Over the past two years I have used Jill's coaching and mentoring skills to guide me in both personal and professional situations, to positive effect. Jill employs a clear, empathetic approach designed to help you identify key issues and suggests constructive ways in which these obstacles can be overcome. I really appreciated this support and guidance and was subsequently more able to focus on the situation, my feelings and how to overcome the challenges. My last session helped me to overcome anxiety about job interviews, and enabled me to control nerves, think logically during the interview and also how best to pitch my presentation. And it worked! Thanks very much Jill. "

D.M.K., Glasgow

"I really enjoyed each of the four sessions and valued being challenged and pushed to consider different options.  Clarity was what I was seeking, and I’ve grown more confident in my own strengths and the possible routes open to me.... I’m off to find a kite to fly . . .   ;-"  L.A., Paisley

Change and Resilience (Ayrshire College)

“Great workshop for taking back control in a positive way.”

“Very intuitive course which made a real difference to my perspective on change.”

“This course helped me to see change in a different light, as a positive outcome for all, and that I can help to make it happen.”


Confident Interviews (Ayrshire College)

"I feel 100% better prepared for my interview. Thanks Jill - I think this job is in the bag!"

"Great workshop and adapted to the group's needs outwith the planned content."

"Good practical examples of thoughts and experiences I have actually had and good techniques to deal with them."

“Fantastic training session, delivered in a very relaxed environment by a friendly, knowledgeable and supportive trainer. Many thanks!”

Confident Presentations

"Many thanks for your help with the preparation of my presentation, your input was absolutely invaluable and I will be putting your techniques to good use in future talks and presentations"

Lorna Gibson, Director, Paligap

"Jill Simpson is an expert facilitator of business-focused learning, networking and change.

Recognising the issues around presenting information and enabling people to act, Jill ensures that every session provides opportunities to develop your own style while changing the way you've 'always done it' ."

Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

"My recent attendance at the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce Facilitator’s Workshop has given me some new and fresh ideas on how to present in a different way.

It has given me the confidence to try new methods and I believe this has enabled me to perform my role within the organisation more effectively."

Helen McBride, Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce

"Jill’s presentation skills training course has transformed my presentations from  horrid nerve wracking tasks that I would try to get through as fast as I could with as many pretty pictures as possible – to targeted focused presentations that engage the audience and  really get my message across."

Lesley McGregor, Glasgow

Train the Trainer

"The trainers' confidence has increased significantly since the training, so thank you again for providing us with such a good training day.

They are well on their way to producing the materials and preparing to start training"
