CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Mark Bennett is professional, reliable and talented. He has the ability to inspire, motivate and connect with anyone he works with; taking their ability to a higher level to get the best results”.

Dame Kelly Holmes MBE, Double Olympic Champion

“This Thorough and extremely valuable system has helped me to develop and understand how my clients like to learn and improve results. I strongly recommend PDS to anyone who wants to develop as a coach and maximise the performance of the teams and athletes they work with.”

Rob Watts PGA Golf Coach, & coach to Open champion Darren Clark

“I learnt more about my team-mates and myself in 5 days than in 7 years of professional rugby. I now have the tools to make myself a better player and team-mate and to be the success I aspire to. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to achieve their goals and potential.”

Kyran Bracken – England Rugby Union World Champion

Mark delivered an energetic, challenging and thought provoking session for coaching leads from across governing bodies of sport. We received extremely positive feedback about the Performance Development Systems (PDS), and Mark’s stories of his own learning along his coaching journey; “Mark Bennett’s talk was very inspiring, providing a way of thinking that my Governing Body may need to adopt at certain levels of the performance pathway”; Mark Bennett is a high quality speaker and really emphasises the key characteristics of High Performance coaching”. There’s no doubt that PDS can help organisations to develop their coaching programmes.

Dr Oliver Holt 

“As an England rugby union coach I have attended plenty of career development and coaching courses. These courses have provided me with many good ideas, concepts and theories, but non have impacted on me the way the PDS Performance coach course has.
The training consisted of one day per week learning practical techniques, followed a few days later by one-on-one mentoring with direct feedback and reviewing. All theories and techniques were explained in a way that I understood and could immediately integrate into my own coaching. This style of learning was fantastic and has moved my coaching forward in leaps and bounds.
Within four weeks my own coaching has been transformed! This is not just short-term change either; I believe this course has changed the way I will coach for the rest of my career. I have no doubt the techniques I have learnt have had a positive influence on the performance of theEngland team.
Any coach who is serious about maximising the performance potential of the athletes and teams they are working with needs to experience PDS Performance coach course for themselves.”

“Mark Bennett began applying the Performance Development Systems to the personnel on our garrison 4 months ago.  The results for us have been great, with our patients coming to us with training injuries at a rate that is half what it was a year ago.  Their awareness of how to train safely and efficiently has been transformed, along with their assumption of responsibility for their own fitness maintenance and their knowledge of the impact of proper nutrition on their fitness.  Measured fitness outcomes for all personnel have been better than ever before.  After 21 years experience of managing sports and training injuries in military personnel, this system offers the best approach that I have ever seen.  I unreservedly recommend this system to any organisation that is serious about maximising their people’s fitness and personal ownership of that whilst minimising their risk of injury in training”.

Dr Ross T Walker MRCGP Specialist in Orthopaedics/Sports Medicine and Senior Medical Officer Arborfield Garrison

"Mark is an outstanding coach mentor and innovator in sports personnel management. He is a leader in his field and has changed professional best practice in talent and elite coaching especially in the UK. He brings a different perspective which challenges traditional coach leadership practice and clearly focuses on athlete empowerment and positive coach behaviours including greater self-awareness and analysis. He had significant impact with National Youth team coaches when I was the National Teams Director with GB Basketball".

Warwick Cain – Director High Performance Basketball - GB Basketball National Team Director/Head of Performance

Mark Bennett is without doubt one of the best people at what he does. Mark has transformed my coaching effectiveness and I know that he is making a massive impact across golf in England as well as a number of other sports and industries. The Performance Development System that Mark has developed and the associated training and skill development that goes alongside that will make anybody more effective at what they do whatever walk of life they are in. I could not recommend Mark highly enough.

Since under taking the PDS accreditation with Mark my coaching results have improved dramatically. His ideas & methods do work& I would highly recommend working with mark in any capacity. So much so that I am considering my advanced PDS.
