“Damian came to Danesfield House to train us on Swimming Pool Safety. Over the years I have been on a number of first aid and safety courses, Damien’s course was by far the most enjoyable, detailed and productive and the whole team was engaged throughout. I thought it was brilliant”

Robert Ledward-Smith, Operations Manager, Danesfield House Hotel and Spa, Marlow
“Damian conducted the RLSS Emergency Response Program with us. He is a great tutor with an intimate knowledge of his subject and a passion for what he does. The course as presented by Damian was very well received by me and all the colleagues that attended it. His patience and approachable nature ensured that everybody was engaged throughout the course. I would strongly recommend Damian for any water safety related training as I think that he is without equal in this field.”

“I have just completed the trainer course for the RLSS National Water Safety Management Programme (May 2014). I have to compliment Damian Hall, the course leader. I have attended many training events in my career of 34 years and Damian is right up there with the best; comprehensive knowledge and experience, and superb delivery/facilitation skills, a pleasure to work with. If you need a trainer in water safety I cannot imagine anyone better.”

Andy Barclay, Head of Cornwall Outdoors, Cornwall Council

“Damian ran Water Safety training level 1 & 2 for some of our partnership staff and their Volunteers. All those that attended gave very positive feedback, highly commending Damian’s knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. Damian was a great facilitator making the content interesting and relevant to our work around rivers.

Damian also provided an advisory role for the staff at Morden Hall Park, taking time to talk through measures and controls that could be implemented in the park to improve the water safety measures currently in place. The staff really valued this time to talk through what they had learnt in the training and how to implement it on their own site”
