“While I'm on the topic - our training and compliance manager praised the course you ran for us last weekend and the trainers delivery. His ability to adapt to the audience and provide the material in a way that our staff were interested was a breath of fresh air - especially for some who have sat these courses before. So, thank you! Look forward to running more courses together soon.”


“Just wanted to touch base and thank-you for the referral to Brian at Upskills QLD. They were extremely responsive and well priced for the work required. I won’t hesitate to ask them on the next project!”


“I would also like to extend my appreciation to you, Rachel and Doug for all attention you have given to my 3 major projects at Camp Hill, Greenslopes and the recent Eagle Farm Bartleys Hill projects too many others mention. Once again many thanks.”


“Just wanted to say a great big thank you for yesterday. Everything went so well. You guys are honestly the best in the business!”


“You probably don't need me to say it, but sorry Scotty is an excellent trainer, and his real on the job experience is a great plus. We want to book another block of training for the same 3 courses, will talk in next few days.”


“I have filled out the survey form you came up looking pretty good! We have a very positive training experience with your company - in fact your company's efforts were the one of the best experiences we had this year."


“We had TMI out at Burgowan on Friday 25/2/22.
It was a great day, apart from the horrible weather, lol.
Kathy is awesome !!!!
From the get-go she had control of the room, the boys engaged, she delivered the content so well and was so patient with everyone making sure everyone was on the same page.
I have spoken to a few of the boys that attended, and they said the same thing, one said that was the best course he has ever been too.
Please pass on this fed back to Kathy, I did speak to her after the course and told her how good I thought it was, she is great so passionate about what she does and really knows her stuff.


Both of these lovely ladies have been praised by our On Call Staff Member for their patience and flexibility during difficult rostering changes:
“They were both great to deal with and were very helpful and patient while I sorted the rosters out.”

"I was most impressed with the professionalism that ALL the staff at TMP that I have had contact with have displayed. I can tell you that it is a unique experience. We certainly will be requesting your service for our November Hill Climb Event, and will be recommending to the Classic Car Show that they continue discussions with you.”
