What do past participants say?
“It’s a worthwhile investment. I found it a really useful experience. Coming into it with other people from your organisation, makes a big difference in terms of being able to go back into the office and think about what you’ve taken from each of the sessions and the site visit and translate that into what might you do differently within your organisation.” Assistant Director, Adult Social Care and Health, Barnet
“Thank you so much for an inspirational programme that has allowed us to think differently to provide innovative projects to engage volunteers- where they feel valued and supported. You definitely helped to get rid of the ‘cob webs’ by introducing new methods and ways of driving forward and presenting change- in a positive and acceptable way.” Senior Manager, East of England Ambulance Trust
