Terry is so approachable and personable and really connects with his audience. He is both engaging and inspirational with a wealth of knowledge and ‘real life’ stories.

Managing Director, ORIS Forums

On behalf of ORIS Forums I would like to thank you for attending our event and delivering a fantastically energetic and engaging presentation – our members loved it and you most certainly stole the show!


In my twenty years in the third sector I have not come across a better trainer. I would highly recommend Terry to any organisation

UK North Security Consultant, Primark Stores Limited

An excellent presentation Terry, really engaging.

Progamme Manager - Catch 22

Terry as always you have been an absolute hit! Thank you so much for all you, Gemma and your team do – you are an asset to Catch 22.

Assistant Director - Children’s Services, Barnardo's

Terry has a unique presentation style – whilst dealing with a really difficult subject area he is both sensitive and very funny. Oakwood helped us to deliver Mental Health Awareness to approximately 100 staff in one day. I wanted a trainer who would engage with a range of staff with differing needs and experience levels and also be inspiring for them all. The feedback from all staff has been 100% positive – not only did they learn and engage they also really enjoyed the session and they are all thinking about how they look after themselves too
