Bernie also provides a range of more specialist services including behavioural profiling and personality testing. These techniques are designed to help individuals better understand their subconscious behaviours and own personality traits with the aim of helping them engage and relate to their staff and clients better. Bernie believes that “there will be strained relationships within the workplace coming out of lockdown. Some will be resentful of their colleagues who were furloughed whilst they were working extra hours. Furloughed staff will also be on the defensive returning to work. This is just one of the issues Businesses will need to be proactively preparing to deal with post lockdown.”
This cutting edge behavioural testing will also be key to Bernie assisting entrepreneurs and businesses to establish their unique personal Brand and business culture coming out of lockdown.
“In my opinion EVERYTHING we do in life is about sales but ultimately it’s about understanding yourself, other people and having the skills to sell yourself.

Bernie Davies, lives and breathes what she has created; this is a book not to be missed.” Alison Edgar MBE, The Entrepreneur’s Godmother 2020.
