Very much new learning and raised awareness. The video clips were great! You work well as a team, the laughter was good and added to the enjoyment!


Since COVID I have participated in many webinars/virtual learning. This has without doubt been the most rewarding and helpful one that I have participated in.

Pace, content, relevance, discussions, focus on self-care. All of it. Really useful - thank you so much. Practical and gave me concrete tools to use at work and personally.

The workshop was valuable not only professionally but also personally. It has given me great impetus to look after myself much more! The day was excellent - I loved the 'team approach' from the trainers - great balance. Fabulous pack to have to take home and into the workplace. Thanks Lisa and Mark for a great day!
