  • The lecture was well received by all who attended, there was so much to take in, but Gill, as always, presented it in a way which makes it easier to grasp.  Her notes are also most comprehensive and helpful.

  • Your course has really assisted my general understanding of trust’s and tax and provided me with a solid foundation to build upon. The notes you prepared have provided an excellent source of reference and your diagrams aided my understanding of a difficult subject to get my head around.  The ability to ask questions as they came up really help me learn as well.

    Stephanie Greaves (Trust taxation delegate) Robert Barber & Co
  • The well structured course notes, using a chronological timeline which brings in the relevant law and procedure at the appropriate time.  The notes should be a valuable ongoing companion and reference point too.  I felt the course was excellent.

    Dennis Phillips (Wills & Probate delegate) Mayo Wynne Baxter
  • I thought the training was excellent.  The feedback from the team was very positive.  They all enjoyed the way in which the training was presented and found the day very informative. I would certainly use LawSkills again and hopefully there will be an opportunity to do so in the future.

  • Gill was a delight to work with.  She has a thorough knowledge of her subject matter but explained it in a way which was easy to understand (even the dreaded tax element).  Gill also enjoys her subject matter which was reflected in a positive learning experience.  Highly recommend the course.  The course has given me the confidence to move forward to retrain in a new area of law.

    Tracey Watson Wills, Probate & E&V Delegate
  • “Thank you for such a useful technical and practical session, all the feedback has been excellent. Gill provided such a clear path through the acronym maze of international trust reporting. It has been a delight to deal with Sue on the pre-seminar arrangements – total efficiency.”

  • "Thankfully, when my colleague was explaining some taxation to me today, I actually understood what she was saying so all round it [the course] was a success!" Taxation of Trusts course delegate
