Colleagues have found Kwai Yu an inspirational. More than two thirds of the Woolies people he has helped got the next job they applied for!
Oldham-based Kwai Yu was so shocked by news about Woolies that he volunteered his help for anyone who needs it. Top firms invite Kwai into the Boardroom to help people to deliver their true potential, normally paying more than £500 a head for a day's coaching and inspiration. For Woolies people there's no charge - and no catch. Several big name Managers attended his first workshop, and were impressed. See their feedback and find out more about the planned follow-up event in Swindon.
If you fancy building a CV on-line for free, Iain Lewis (until recently the National Resourcing Manager for Woolies) has found a great website that helps you to produce a very professional document quickly and easily. Why not take a look at http://www.e-cvs.net
