Being Confident, Resilient and Successful
Part of the Italian based Trend Group, Granite Transformations is the number one name in home installations across the world. Installing 8,000 kitchen and bathrooms a month and with a turnover in excess of £200 million, they have 700 employees in 50 countries, including 5 production plants.
It was a strong interest in his own continued personal and professional development that led the COO of Granite Transformations, Danny Hanlon, to Dale Carnegie. After attending an introductory evening and hearing the stories of success from individuals who had recently completed the Dale Carnegie “Skills for Success” course, he decided to take it himself. “When I attended the introductory evening I witnessed a young girl get up and speak who proclaimed that she feared public speaking prior to the course. It was clear to everyone that evening just how far she had come so I decided to sign up.”
After experiencing the course for himself Danny recognised that the skills and techniques taught could change behaviours within his organisation, enabling his team to push their personal and business boundaries. Since then the majority of his team have participated in a variety of Dale Carnegie courses.
Danny describes working with Dale Carnegie as follows: “They practice what they preach. I’ve worked with over a dozen people from Dale Carnegie and each time the experience has been the same. Extremely professional, polite, helpful and they truly do want the best for you and your organisation! “
