Mike Sutherland - Commercial Manager, Business Banking Westpac
“I am really proud to support the work of the Queenstown Resort College and in particular their take 5 programme. Take 5 provides SME businesses with a fantastic opportunity to up skill staff in a relatively quick time frame without significantly effecting time out of the business itself. The topics discussed and taught in this programme will in my opinion significantly improve skills held by those that attend and ultimately be very beneficial to the businesses they operate within.”
Tony Everitt - CEO, Destination Queenstown

Christopher Peak - Site Controller, AJ Hackett Bungy, Kawarau Bridge
Thank you very much for the Train the Trainer course on Monday. I found a couple of points particularly valuable as I had identified certain things which you were able to frame in a way so as to make a solution to them seem possible (such as the marginal performance which you addressed) and that at least helped me to better understand them and the reasons behind them. I also valued the experience with the group I was in. Being people I either have or will be working with a lot it was good to get an insight into their views, opinions and ways of working that may prove invaluable sooner or later! Thanks again, and I look forward to the next one.
Joe Turnbull - PR & Sales Manager, QBook
“The QRC Take 5 Management course was an excellent opportunity for me to focus on my overall leadership skills and crystallise the issues that will help me improve them. I’ve taken something important from every module and been able to apply those lessons immediately, while the quality of both the facilitators and motivation of the participants has consistently impressed and inspired.”
Jaan Gardiner - Equipment Manager, AJ Hackett Bungy
Your course is BY FAR the best course I have been on within this company. I have been to quite a few over the 12 years I have been here, with the same old way of doing things. But you kept it fun, relaxed and made it easy to stay involved. Which for me is a BIG thing in retaining what you taught us. Keep doing what you’re doing cause it works.
Stu Cordelle - General Manager, Ziptrek Ecotours
“I found the Take 5 Better Business course very valuable. The quality of the facilitators and content of the five individual modules was excellent and very relevant to Ziptrek Ecotours. This was a great opportunity to learn and develop new skills and in addition create relationships and networks with other like-minded people who will go on to be senior business leaders.”
Heather Lindsay - Retail/Photo Team Leader, Shotover Jet
“The most enjoyable and relevant course for leadership that I have attended to date.”
Ben Saunders - Tour Driver, Real Journeys
“I wish to acknowledge that many of us saw great value in the Cultural Intelligence workshop; of the Chinese and Indian cultures....There was good coverage of culture, customs and geography, and why certain behaviours take place. This education builds confidence for tour drivers and would enhance the experience of visitors. Entertaining, enlightening and well worth it, thanks.”
Iain Marshall - Dart River Safaris
“Awesome course covering all aspects of leadership and management”
Monica Banhidi - Customer Services Manager, Shotover Jet
