"I am delighted to see Katie leading the way"

Katie has done a superb job in getting to this stage of the Edge Challenge. This competition really demonstrates the talent young people have, not just in thinking up new ideas and products, but in following them through and creating viable businesses. At the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy, we work hard to instil these entrepreneurial attributes in our students and I am delighted to see Katie leading the way.

"I certainly feel more confident in identifying the early signs of stress..."

Katie shared with us information on early warning signs and initial indicators, which was valuable advice for those of us who leads teams of people, as well as reflecting on our own personal situations.

Following the session, I certainly feel more confident in identifying the early signs of stress and more able to start a conversation with those who may need support or someone to listen to their position. The session was facilitated in a relaxed, informal manner where we were able to learn from both the trainer and colleagues and discuss topics, which aren’t commonly raised or talked about. Following the success of this session, a wider program of events is being rolled out to a larger population of the Region.

"The 2 day training delivered by Altruist was one of the most fulfilling training courses I have ever attended."

Having worked in the NHS for 17 years and managing staff for 13 of those I found this course enlightening. It compounded how mental health affects us all no matter what your background is. It also really tackled the stigma of using the words “mental health”. Practical advice, tips and scenarios were used to give us a toolbox of strategies to help staff. On reflection of my own career I now realise I have been in this position many times and now I feel more empowered and equipped to deal with these sensitive situations.

"All managers thoroughly enjoyed this course and we would like to thank Altruist for their support"

The course was interactive, enjoyable and informative. It was a very good starting point to a vast subject and helpful to get managers to think along the right lines and share useful techniques and best practice. An ideal balance of presentation, activities and discussion, I would recommend this course to other businesses who would like to up-skill managers to spot the early signs of stress and have the confidence to start that important conversation with employees.

"The staff at Yeading were so impressed with the training and found it to be extremely helpful and thought provoking."

We had an excellent INSET session with Katie and her colleague Sandra from Altruist. The staff at Yeading were so impressed with the training and found it to be extremely helpful and thought provoking. The workshop fitted in so well at the start of a new term and has prompted so much discussion. I personally thoroughly enjoyed the training and found it insightful. We would be delighted to work with Altruist again.
