The trainer managed to enthuse the group of 30 individuals and gave them useful tips to carry with them into their everyday lives.

Five 1 hour Work Wellbeing Talks Client Feedback
“We asked Joanne could she deliver a number of talks in several geographical locations to a cross section of staff with varying workplace roles and differing mind-sets.
By listening closely to our needs, she presented fresh, meaningful and interestingly different talks connecting mindfulness to safe working to these various audiences.
The talks focused on personal wellbeing at work and beyond, and on how to turn complacency, lapse of concentration and ‘mindless’ behaviours into more highly aware and positive ways of working.
It also brought greater recognition and understanding of some of the more subtle and underlying causes of unsafe or unhealthy behaviours and stress, and gave insight into the associated negative or dangerous consequences.
Finally, the short engaging exercises and meditations which featured throughout, offered participants thought and practice to take away with them. Staff feedback was nothing less than positive and approving.”
– Liam Thompson, Manager, ESB

I will contact you soon again to discuss a more comprehensive program that will best suit Niche Generics. Here is some more feedback from participants:” David Byrne

Following the session I had a much better understanding and would be able to apply some of the techniques practised during the session in my daily life. I am interested in finding out more in relation to this and possibly doing a course in this as I feel both my work and personal life would benefit greatly from this. I thought the session was very enjoyable and very good. The lady giving the course was very nice, knowledgeable and made me and everyone feel at ease.”
