Oakwood's approach to Mental Health training was perfectly pitched for a senior team. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening. We came away with a much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. Most of all, the training helped to dispel the stigma and fear of mental health - giving delegates the confidence to recognise some of the symptoms and a desire to do what we can to help people through periods of mental ill-health.

Oakwood's approach is highly professional and bespoke. The training I attended with them, along with the top 25 senior leaders at Barnardo's was one of the most profound learning experiences I have had in a while. High quality, fast paced, deep, challenging, thought provoking and humorous. Brilliant!

As a company, Unipart has long been committed to the well-being of all our colleagues and has put in place many programmes and facilities to benefit both their physical and mental wellness.

Facing the dual challenges of an ever-increasing pace of change and the impact of the pandemic, we have particularly engaged our leadership in understanding their role in meeting these 21st-century challenges.

That's why it was so important for us to have an acknowledged expert like Terry Streather work with both with small groups and to address our entire leadership team in an online presentation that was highly informative and engaging and has gained many plaudits from those who attended.

John Neill Chairman and CEO, Unipart Group

The session was a great opportunity to reflect on how and why we should always talk about Mental Health, and how we can support one another.
