Head of Profit Protection at a FTSE company

Terry is a dynamic, passionate and highly engaging presenter and facilitator. I've heard him speak at several events and his ability to engage and connect with the audience is fantastic.

CEO, Next

Terry was an excellent trainer and we came away with a much clearer picture of how mental health issues affect people at work. The training was engaging, accessible, informative, important and mind-broadening. 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.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing Advisor, Next

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!

UK North Security Consultant, Primark Stores Limited

An excellent presentation Terry, really engaging.

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

Safety, Security & Licensing Officer

Terry was fantastic, very engaging and pitched at exactly the right level. He totally captivated the entire room of over 100 people.


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

Conference Director, Retail Knowldge

Terry is a great presenter who offers exciting new perspectives on people and risk management, based on years of hands-on experience. He definitely energizes the room!
