A key part of the Graduate Induction Scheme at Monarch Recruitment

“I just wanted to write and say thank you Holistica for a truly inspring two days. Ayub is the ‘Uomo Universalis’ of the IT world, a true expert who speaks with authority and enthusiasm. Not once during the course did I experience boredom, the man clearly knows what he is talking about, indeed it is no surprise that he coaches the coaches in blue chips!

Genius is the art of making complex subjects come across in a cohesive and cogent manner, without them losing their subtle nuances.  Ayub was able to condense extremely complex information without it losing anything in the translation. If anything the information became far more digestible in Ayub’s format.

I can only ascribe the most kind of epithets upon Ayub, not only did he aid in my understanding of the IT sector, he also provided important information pertaining to my job and the best route to pursue for my personal success. information which no doubt transcended the bounds of the sales floor. Holistica served a dual role, an epiphanic lesson in positivity, and simultaneously a lesson in IT. What a bargain price for the experience. !”

Jerome Wills, Consultant – Digital Markets, Monarch Recruitment

Simone Gregory, Personnel and Training Manager, Hays Information Technolog

“I recently attended a training session with Ayub, called the IT Recruitment Masterclass. I thought the session was great but in particular Ayub’s delivery was excellent. He had the whole room enthralled from the start and I would definitely attend another session held by him again. He is very knowledgeable and personable and can turn any training session into something great.”

Stephanie Crosbie (AIRP) Rullion Computer Personell

Without question I would always recommend him to my clients and colleagues”

Holistica running MBA’s Training Academy Across Europe“Holistica Consulting was orginally assigned to train our consultants in relation to understanding the IT recruitment industry (understanding the IT landscape, the technologies and IT roles). However as time went on it soon became apparent that there were clear additional benefits in the way Holistica not only motivated the sales team with their high-energy sessions, but also in the way they were able to tweak and customise delivery according to the needs of different teams and managers across our group.Since our initial encounter with Holistica, the relationship has continued to grow and strengthen, and has reached a point where we liaise regularly in order to continually develop an internal training programme at MBA which is second to none in the industry.”

Mike Garlick, CEO, Michael Bailey Associates

Swiss campaign a success!


“I just wanted to say thank you for the training earlier this week – it was incredibly informative and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it will improve the way I am able to work with my candidates. However it has also changed the way I see IT in general and I am really interested to do some more research into the details of how a lot of the things we discussed actually work – particularly the languages area. I’m only sorry there wasn’t more time to really delve into the intricacies during the course!”

“A highly enthusiastic trainer who consistently held my interest. Great.”
James Lees, Resource Planning and Application Manager, Centrica

“A couple of weeks on from attending a training course provided by Ayub, there have already been tangible benefits for the business with regards to technical and I.T recruitment. I feel much better placed from a HR perspective to partner with I.T line management in delivering resource requirements for their teams. I’ve found myself getting into technical conversations and not only understanding the basics but being able to participate and add to the dialogue.
On a personal level Ayub delivered one on the best training days I have attended, making a potentially ‘dull’ subject come to life. I recommend his services to anyone who wishes to understand the basics of IT (particularly HR Business Partners within technical organisations) or organisations who are going to embark on a I.T/technical recruitment campaign.”
Michael Cooper, Recruitment Advisor (Interim), Skipton Building Society

My feedback is really to say that my initial reason for signing up to the course was a “need to” rather than a “want to” .but having attended Ayub’s session I have to say I genuinely found it interesting lively & engaging – Ayub is one of the best presenters I have ever experienced at a training event, not only is his presentation incredibly polished but he is passionate about what he does & has a fantastic sense of humour which goes a long way in making the subject matter so interesting.
Amanda Deaves, HR Manager, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners

“On the 7th June 2011, I attended an IT Recruitment Masterclass delivered by Ayub. This course was engaging, interesting, informative, well tailored and fun! He managed to strip down a very technical and jargon-heavy subject and reveal the meaning in a language I understood. He also supplemented the course with very interesting anecdotes which I have been sharing with anyone willing to listen ever since! I strongly recommend Ayub for any HR function wishing to become intelligible recruitment partners to their IT function.”
Angela Stebbings, Recruitment Consultant, Lowell Group
