I’ve a lot of experience in digital training but Train Smarter was a real eye opener for me. It was lovely to experience how you switched activities, almost relentlessly, so that we stayed focused and engaged the whole time. I’m inspired by new methods to facilitate in a digital environment.

I really enjoyed the program. It’s a fantastic didactical toolbox. Was able to check all my gears. Had to throw some away, acquired new, sharpened others. Tina is a brilliant facilitator.

Super great results due to super great talent. Stella Collins practices what she preaches and makes sure that the message she’s delivering sticks. As a result we already received many positive comments from the participants about the program content.

Stellar Labs' approach has resulted in a clarification of our current educational processes. The buy-in, the people skilled approach and their knowledge has brought a new people dynamic to EIT InnoEnergy, which we can now reinvest into our future courses and programmes.

This was a great learning experience, packed with good ideas, tips and techniques and delivered in a very brain friendly way. Tina was a great facilitator and role modelled throughout how you can deliver learning just as expertly online as you can in the classroom.

The Train Smarter programme was more interactive, more stimulating and more stretching than I’d have imagined any ‘socially distant’ (or online-facilitated) programme could be. As a great fan of in-person classroom training, I found the Stellar Labs methodology supplied a surprisingly successful alternative in the “Live Labs”, combined with the many benefits of a phased programme with plenty of continuity, challenge and support between the online group sessions.
