Lisa Tiling – HR Manager HM Prison Service
Not having received any details regarding what this course detailed in advance, I must admit to having attending feeling quite sceptical. These less ‘traditional’ courses often just seem like box ticking exercises and I often struggle to see the relevance to me as an NW employee.
However, in this case I feel compelled to contact you ,to tell you that it was excellent. The trainer was not only a passionate and engaging instructor but he is also clearly very knowledgeable in this field. I learnt so much in this session , which will not only benefit me as an employee but I can take with me to improve and understand more about myself and others and I will definitely be recommending this to any of my colleagues who have yet to attend this course.

I attended the Personal Resilience training last week and I just wanted to advise you that we all were very impressed with the content and delivery and have come away with some positive ideas for change.
We are all trying to drink more water and I am trying the seed mix recipe, so hopefully we will see some good results.
Unanimous conclusion was that it was a fantastic course.
