“I see a great benefit in working with crew to facilitate clear communication techniques, based on different personalities and backgrounds. Crew-Glue is a much needed resource in the Yachting Industry.”
Captain MY Berilda
“When signing up for Crew Glue, I was not sure what to expect and was somewhat skeptical of a “team-building” style event. I must say that we were all pleasantly surprised by Sara’s presentation and approach. I think we all have a better understanding of each other and everyone on board feels they learned something new. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone looking to fast track their team building on board. I will now be incorporating what I have learned, into our hiring process for any new crew.”
Captain MY Mikado
“Sara brought her wealth of training knowledge and expertise to our fledgling opening team at Soneva Jani, as well as her understanding of the Soneva Brand. From the initial leadership training for the Heads of Teams, through the spirited team build days and the focus of the brand awareness sessions, her enthusiasm and energy sparked every host. We are varied and random crowd, from experienced hoteliers to fresh behind the ears straight out of school teenagers from over 15 different countries and a span of over 30 years in age difference, Sara instilled a sense of family, of understanding and enthusiasm that will remain our firm foundation as we move forward to open the best hotel in the world. Her training sessions were filled with creative ways of communicating the message, learning without realizing your learning because you are having far too much fun. I hope that the effervescent bubble of joy that she sparked within the team will last us a long, long time.”
Pre opening & General Manager / Soneva Jani
“Sara is an extraordinary developer of talent. She worked with us as an employee and subsequently as a contractor, developing our staff in all areas of the business. Sara is particularly adept at raising the performance of younger team members and she put in place a high performance employee development programme which remains one of the most successful we operate. During her time with us she set up a number of highly successful Learning & Development programmes, all of which have sustained.
Sara has a unique ability to engage personally and generate enthusiasm in teams across a wide range of cultural backgrounds. She is also effective at training staff at every level in the corporate hierarchy.
In the L&D space there is no-one I would recommend more highly than Sara.”
Chief Financial Officer & Deputy CEO / Soneva
”I would like to thank you so much for the fun, inspiring presentation on “Why are they like that ??”
Most of our crew came with an open mind and intrigue … It was such an interesting course on understanding yourself and others’ personalities and behaviours … A huge benefit to all the crew and crew relations on board … Thank you thank you.
I would recommend all crew and boats to attend this course!!!!”
Interior Manager/ ChiefStewardess / M/Y Limitless
“We recently had Sara in the office to do some team training, which was unlike anything any of us had experienced before. It was engaging, thought provoking and just great fun. I wish she had been in the yachting industry when I was on board yachts, it could have helped a great deal with some of the inevitable crew issues, and could have explained a few things! I would highly recommend her to anyone within a team environment – even to those already working well together (as ours do!), as there is still a great deal that can be taken from it.”
