I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for being an amazing mentor to me. Your guidance and support have meant the world to me, and I've learned so much under your wing. You've always been patient with my questions and never hesitated to share your expertise. I genuinely appreciate all the time you've invested in helping me succeed. Your mentorship has made a significant impact on my life, and I can't thank you enough for that. I'm lucky to have had you as my mentor, and I just wanted you to know how much I value your guidance. Thanks again, Addie! You're the best! 🌟
Your skill, tact and inclusive way in navigating this somewhat tricky topic was really appreciated. I know we were both concerned with the seriousness and weight of the topic of this session, but I think you can agree that despite the gravity of the topic, the interns enjoyed an enjoyable and humorous session, thanks to you.

Addie brings to her role total professionalism, unparalleled depth of experience in tv drama production, integrity. humanity and compassion. I went on her line producing course and it changed my career. Top class. I couldn’t rate her more highly.
Addie was really fantastic. Generous with her knowledge, really experienced and gave a great overview of what is required for the Production Management role. The course helped with filling in a few gaps in my knowledge for the role. Like dealing with elaborate stunts and VFX shoots and Post Production. The padlet is an invaluable resource.

It has been a real pleasure learning from you. This has been such an invaluable course, and the information you have provided in the padlet is beyond epic.
Excellent. Really well organised, detailed and experience-led course. It didn't feel like a classroom and people were able to extend their knowledge and ask questions. I feel more confidence in advancing my skills and pushing towards JPM level.
Just wanted to say thank you for taking the Leadership and management essentials course. It was really interesting, hugely engaging and very useful. It would be so easy for it to fail on all those counts if it wasn’t for someone as compassionate and considered as you leading the course. So thank you so very much for your time and insights, and for your generosity in guiding the group!!
100% recommend, Addie is one of the most informed tutors I have come across. Her experience really does shine through.
Definitely recommend it to others! I found it inspiring and empowering as well as confidence boosting
I'd like to thank you for the interesting and enlightening talk you gave our Production Co-Ordinator course at the BBC Academy a couple of weeks ago. I have done several risk assessment courses during my working life and that was surely the best and most fun so far! Also thank you for the CV and networking pointers. I am attempting to put your tips into practice!
I just wanted to properly thank you for the course over the weekend. It was really great. I always thought that covering everything the Production Office has to deal with was pretty much an impossible task… but you seemed to managed to cover everything!
Taking the course was a great reassurance that I am (hopefully) doing the right things on each project. It was also really nice to pick up some new tips, ways of working… and more specifically Movie Magic details, which I have avoided for years.
My first one on one session with Addie on budgeting and scheduling was so illuminating that I booked her for further sessions on other aspects of production. She teaches with great authority and clarity whilst making the experience relaxed, pleasant, fun. She’ll leave you prepared to tackle the challenges you’ll surely face when going into production. She is truly one of the best out there.
Really thorough course structure. It covered much of the basics and went through in detail about many things a PM faces while working in the industry. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere meant everyone was comfortable to share their experiences which helped hugely
Addie could not have been any better! She was energetic, inspiring and throughout the entirety of the course there was not a moment within the day that her energy lapsed - this constantly kept a good flow of energy and concentration throughout the room. She always knew the appropriate time to take a break, to let the information sink in and had such experience in the field that every story she spoke, we felt as if we would know how to act if we ourselves were put into that situation."
Addie is the most amazing trainer. She has written and run numerous courses for us over the past 2 years and not only have they been extremely successful, the feedback from ALL of the trainees has been awesome! She engages with the trainees like no other trainer I have dealt with before. She always seems to get them to be the best they can be and that is down to her patience and teaching style. I would not hesitate to recommend her, as far as I am concerned she is one of the best there is."
Addie's half day course was informative and educational in a relaxed setting created by Addie and her unique ability to break the ice with people while remaining professional and authoritative on a subject. I can think of no person better qualified to teach. If you own, manage or run a business or organisation then at some point you are going to require Equality or Diversity Training- this is your last stop right here- Addie has it covered!
I attended one of your boot camp courses in Feb this year & now I am production managing my second block of Casualty... Thanks for giving me the confidence to go for it.
Thank you for another inspiring course. Under your guidance I feel prepared, confident and reassured regarding facing any challenges that I may encounter whilst producing our slate of films and TV series
We go into production this week, so it’s all very exciting at the minute! The Prod Coord and PM course I attended nearly three years ago in Media City was so beneficial. What I learnt with you is really, seriously coming into play now and it properly prepped me for the real world of this industry. I just wanted to update you to say how incredible the experience was. I say many times when telling people about it, that I learnt more with you in 3 days, than 3 years at Uni! And that, Addie, is such a learning curve. I’ll be forever thankful."
