Client Testimonials...

“...The aim was to develop an understanding of stress and help those leaders to develop resilience and raise performance and wellbeing, personally and in their teams and staff.

Dave delivered two great workshops that did just that and the feedback from the delegates, including Head and Deputy Head Teachers and Business Managers, was excellent.

Comments included:

“This was an excellent session. It helped me understand the issues of stress and how to better manage this personally and professionally”

“Thought the delivery of this session was excellent and it provided me with some much needed reflection time and space to decide how to use these strategies back in school”


“With the unprecedented change faced within the Prison Service, recognising the importance of effective leadership which balances the need to raise performance and ensure staff wellbeing is critical to success. With that in mind, we asked Dave Algeo, to deliver a session on ‘developing resilient leaders and teams.’

The session was excellent and very well received by all the leaders attending. They found the session practical, engaging and Dave’s use of creative images and analogies really helped to shape thinking and perception in this area.

Everyone is still talking about the session and applying the tools gained. I would have no hesitation in working with Dave again or recommending him to other organisations keen to raise performance without sacrificing wellbeing.”


“...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.
