Our Clients Reviews & Testimonials

The company showed full professionalism in terms of training, which in 100% met our expectations … I recommend GOODMAN GROUP as a reliable and recommendable partner, if we want to re-train in procurement area we will definitely use the services of this company. “

“Passion, professionalism and a friendly approach. A large dose of useful practical knowledge. Performance in front of the camera – priceless! With great pleasure I can recommend the training and the person leading. “

Sławomir Tul

Strategic Buyer, ERGO HESTIA S.A.

“Great training. It opens the eyes how important are the elements that did not pay attention to the day of training. Practical exercises with video analysis of behavior during negotiations are a hit. It would be nice to have a few more days of practice :). It systematizes knowledge very well (also previously acquired experience) and teaches how to use it consciously. “

Łukasz SpaleniakYusen Logistics

“… we would like to thank Mr Grzegorz Olechniewicz, the trainer, who from the very beginning of the cooperation showed an extraordinary commitment to the preparation of the training workshop and his expert knowledge and practical experience translated into visible effects after the workshop. Therefore, for all these obvious reasons, we would like to recommend the company’s consulting and training services as well as the trainer itself … “

Krzysztof SynoradzkiProduction Director, Herkules Sp. z o.o.

“Thank you very much for the really interesting training, the issues and ravels raised for the meeting gave me a different view of some situations and behaviors. The training was valuable to me, but now after the analysis I had even more questions than before. I believe that such training should be carried out by every buyer to understand his profession (what is the goal and how to achieve it) “

Monika CzajkaUS Pharmacia

“Participating in the two-day training” Procurement and negotiations in business “was a very useful time for me. The training was focused on gaining practical skills that I can successfully use in my everyday work.
The theoretical part supported by interesting exercises and numerous examples. Mr. Grzegorz shares his knowledge with enthusiasm and comprehensively answers the questions of the audience. I definitely recommend this training to anyone who wants to improve their negotiating skills. “

Magdalena WierzbickaRECARO Aircraft Seating Polska

“I have been looking for a professional training for the staff dealing with the shopping area for a long time. I participated in the training “Procurement and Negotiations in Business”, which took place in June in Sopot from June 23-24 this year. I came back very happy. My task was to make GOODMAN GROUP perfectly match the training program for the needs of Purchasing Departments. In an interesting and transparent way, supported by specific examples and very useful exercises, the role of negotiator and buyer in the company was discussed. Negotiation techniques and merchant areas such as Sourcing, tenders and contracts were discussed. During the training, each of the participants could see themselves in the recording session, which allows to objectively assess the level of their skills later. I would recommend. Negotiations never enough, the topics to improve the purchasing staff are many. I will use the next Goodman trainings in the future “
