'…we have identified that the health and well-being of our staff is a key factor in how engaged they are with their work and how well they perform.  We recognised that the ability to manage stress effectively within our organisation is a key factor in ensuring the wellbeing of our people and the organisation as a whole.

To that end, we have been working with Simon Ward and Dave Algeo, who are both experts in their respective fields – Simon in the field of Health and Fitness and Dave, an expert on stress.  The workshops have been delivered with staff from Bands 1 through to 9 (service deliverers to strategic level department/ area heads) and have been exceptionally well received.

Feedback comments from some of those attending the course include:

this was the best experience I’ve ever been on,’ &

The workshop was a brilliant day and really helped me fully understand stress and not only how it affects me but also others.  I must congratulate you on your excellent style of presentation- it was the best workshop I have attended and I recommend it to others.’

Overall, I would highly recommend working with Simon and Dave in the development of a tailored and effective health and wellbeing programme for your organisation.
