TESTIMONIALS

"When I completed the online enquiry form I was pleasantly surprised to receive a personal phone call rather than an email quote.

Bernie asked questions about our company’s needs and desired outcomes, and explained that his training was not just about sitting in a classroom and reading a manual- it was hands on! This was the selling point for us.

As a live entertainment and hospitality venue, our needs were not met by other corporate trainers.

We maintained regular phone and email contact, and using the information I provided, Bernie created a customised lesson plan and specific training tailored to our team.

The training and management techniques was specific to our staff being able to implement effective de-escalation responses in a safe manner in response to what they have previously experienced and what they could experience in the future, when they are faced with aggression or possible violent behaviour from others.

On the day of the training Bernie flew down from Brisbane, arrived early to do a site inspection, learning about our building and emergency procedures, as well as interviewing staff about any dangers that might be present when leaving work in the late evening. He took detailed notes to create a reference file for any future training with our company.

The training itself was split into two parts: verbal de-escalation, and basic Self Defence management techniques.

The training was engaging, hands on, and our team were able to ask for advice on how to deal with real-life instances of aggression.

Bernie taught us physical and verbal techniques for de-escalation, allowed us to practice them in a safe environment, and gave us constructive feedback.
Our two-hour training was engaging and useful for all attendees; thank you, Bernie, for a wonderful session!"

“Unlike other providers Bernie impressed me as he made first contact via phone soon after I made an online inquiry.  He asked questions about our business and staff needs and desired outcomes in relation to de-escalation and aggressive management incidents and explained that his training was interactive and strategy-rich based which would be very engaging, educational and practical for our staff. This was very appealing for our business as this type of customised de-escalation training would be specific in developing those functional skills our staff needed now for their ongoing safety and wellbeing. 

We engaged Bernie with expertise in De-escalation and Occupational Violence Prevention and Passive Defensive Management Techniques to train our field crews (civil works) around how to deal with abusive and threating behaviours. This came about because our staff had encountered this on a number of work sites from the public and sometimes residence on streets in which they are working. Our company Diona is widespread with staff throughout Australia and encompass every aspect of utility infrastructure design and construction.

Due to Covid and bad weather conditions etc. we had to reschedule on several occasions, but Bernie was always flexible and worked with us to find a common solution.

We advised Bernie what we wanted with the outcomes of the training to be, he tailored the training package to suit our goals and Bernie made the training specific to our staff and the real situations they have and can encounter weekly.

Bernie was very professional and was very passionate in providing the best service with interactive training. Beforehand we had purposeful conversations over the phone and Bernie created a custom-made workshop in de-escalating aggressive behaviour skills including (signs of behaviour aggression, identification of cues, verbal and non-verbal communication strategies) etc for our staff specific to their needs.

He arrived super early before the two hour intensive training workshop and engaged with the crews over coffee. Bernie took time to engage with all staff even before the workshop started, so he could talk and make a positive connection with everyone in person, so he could also identify their specific de-escalation skills needed in the training, so it was specific to them.
Staff were actively participating in the training, as Bernie also lined up some staff participants for the practical side of the training. Which included role plays of specific incidents of aggressive behaviour that had occurred to our staff creating ownership and energetic participation of staff with proactive solutions to incidents they have encountered. Only 20% of the training was run in a sit-down presentation scenario, the rest was conducted in our warehouse interactively which got the crews full attention.

While Bernie was substantial with the training hitting all the goals we set, he also introduced an element of fun which many staff commented from the positive feedback evaluation forms.
Here are just some of our internal feedback on the evaluation forms after the training:


“He was very positive, interactive and encouraging trainer, Good practical training that makes me feel more at ease with how to recognise, handle an aggressive situation with my body language, proximity and communication skills, Excellent interaction with explanations in the demonstrations so we can remember and practice the key points, Very effective trainer and made time to get all of us involved, Training was orientated to real job situations and it increased strategies for my safety conscious mindset”

The training and management techniques were precise and custom built for our staff being able to implement effective de-escalation responses towards aggression or violence in a safe manner. The training was captivating, hands on, and our team were able to ask for advice on how to deal with real-life instances of aggression or possible violence. 
Bernie taught us physical and verbal techniques for de-escalation, allowed staff to practice them in a safe environment, and gave us constructive feedback on more effective strategies.
The Occupational Violence Prevention and Passive Defensive Management training was purposeful, practical, educational and useful for all staff. All staff are looking forward to the next refresher workshop.
I have already recommended Bernie to fellow contractors.”

“On behalf of the team at Coastal Sands, we would like to thank Bernie from AGKK and Workplace Violence/Conflict Management/Self Defence for coming out to our workplace and teaching us to become more aware and developing strategies/ techniques for Violence/Conflict Management especially in relation to aggressive behaviour management, as well looking at our work space and identifying things we can improve on to keep our staff safe.

Bernie is a great instructor and the staff really responded well to the 5 step process he goes through for each technique to ensure you have the right understanding to perform the movement. It was also great for team building. I would highly recommend Bernie to all businesses as a way to be proactive towards protecting your staff and giving them the insight to improve their safety in the workplace.”

My family and I have been training with Sensei Bernie at AGKK for several years. As the club has a direct line to Japan, it is a wonderful environment to learn traditional Karate. It is great for children, with a focus on respect, self-discipline and good manners.

Equip ... Empower ... Educate ... pretty much says it all! Another key phrase for me is "Situational awareness". Avoiding a bad situation is way better than having to extract yourself safely. Bernie Equips us with the skills to extract, empowers us to use those skills (if necessary), and educates us to avoid escalations wherever possible. It pays to be smart!
