I recently did the food safe course with Keith and learned a lot! He manages to keep you interested throughout the course with a variety of stories and examples, as well as many jokes! Keith has an incredible ability to make sure that everyone attending the course is given enough individual attention to help them with the personal reasons that they decided to do the course. I would highly recommend this course for anyone planning to work around food.

Keith was such an informative yet fun trainer for the course I did and I felt like I learnt so much within the time. He possesses knowledge that helps one feel that they've gained something valuable before heading into or integrating themselves into the food industry. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to gain some knowledge and further education on food heath and safety!!!

Excellent course. Very well delivered. The instructor is very knowledgeable, interesting, clear and covers a lot very efficiently. He also tailored the course to our individual situations and needs making it even more helpful and worthwhile. He made sure I achieved my goals in booking the course, and I appreciated the helpful way he answered all my questions. I highly recommend this course and the Introduction to HACCP which I also did with him.

Thank you for a fantastic course today Keith! Keith's course is the best I have done during my career - he met every participant and took the time to learn about every participant's goal for joining the course today. Then he referenced the material with the individual participants in mind which was beneficial to them, but to the group as a whole. The material was exciting to learn about and Keith's presentation style was welcoming, engaging, humorous and very informative. I highly recommend Keith's course for all levels of learners, and for all industry sectors who are involved in the food industry. Thank you again.

I had my online training course with Keith today and wow. I have never been taught (including all my years at University) by someone not only passionate and genuine towards the course but articulates it so well in an interactive and humorous learning session. The content was super helpful for someone working in the frontline of serving customers there ready to eat food but also understanding legislations for future as I am too, a business owner. So I managed to gain so much knowledge and perspective from Keith not only because of the content but because I was thoroughly engaged throughout. Thank you for making learning enjoyable this session Keith! 🙂

I was nervous prior to doing the course mainly because it has been a long time since I’ve done any courses/study. However Keith was very easy going, funny and made everyone at ease. The course itself is very detailed and he made sure individual students were looked after in terms of what they actually needed from the course. I have learned a lot and now have more confidence in my future project 🙂 thank you!

Keith was such a hive of information! He spoke clearly, in an engaging style that was easy to listen to for a day-long training session, and he remained focused and on-point right throughout the day.He was careful to include (and individually addressed) all zoom group members, and encouraged interaction (questions) using the group chat function (to allow the training to flow without constant verbal interruptions). He would systematically respond to these group chat questions at appropriate times, ensuring the training remained fluid. I thought this system was a clever use of our training time (which was limited to a time schedule).Keith ascertained, right from the beginning, our specific vocations and tried to tailor the training with additional information where he knew it would benefit individuals.I am a strong visual learner, so really appreciated the photos, images and videos displayed throughout the training (if the training was solely audio/talking I would have struggled to retain as much as I did).I had heard that Keith was a fabulous trainer (knowledgeable, warm, funny), now I can vouch from personal experience that the rumours are true! Thanks heaps, Laura Donovan.
