From start to finish Oakwood have been superb, both Terry and Gemma are a genuine delight to work with. Alongside their professionalism, obvious knowledge and skills with regards to De-escalation and Personal Safety and Train the Trainer, they have also been easy to contact and discuss requirements with, very enthusiastic and more than happy to accommodate business requirements. The delivery style of both Terry and his other trainers has been consistently excellent with our colleagues always commenting on how interesting, engaging and knowledgeable they are. From an L&D point of view we couldn’t ask for anything more and personally, they would always be my first choice of provider for Personal Safety
