Our happy customers

'Having recently attended one of Bev’s training session entitled Supporting Employees Through Menopause I would highly recommend her services to other employers. Bev’s clear information, professionalism, and own life experiences helped with giving me the knowledge needed to support and offer guidance to not only staff but also friends and family members alike. I am now more informed on the subject than I ever was and believe that other employers should take the initiative and move forward to train their staff on this emotive topic.'

'During my tenure as a training validator, I had the pleasure of receiving training and carry out training quality validation for Bev Thorogood . The lesson was a safety critical human factors lesson using facilitation as a training delivery technique.

Facilitation requires; great communication skills, patience, confidence and an in depth knowledge of the subject matter, all of which Bev has in abundance.

Facilitation also requires the interaction and participation of all students, to achieve the set training objectives. I recall the superb use of an interactive game to get all student motivated and communicating well together. This led to group exercises, white board work and group discussions. I remember Bev ensured everyone was included in the lesson by changing rolls and controlling the group exercises with skill.

Bev Thorogood is an accomplished facilitator and any student on any of her courses would leave the lesson not only better informed and trained, but would of had a positive enjoyable learning experience.'

'Our managers recently attended Bev’s training on Awareness of Menopause in the Workplace and had their eyes opened to the impact of menopause on women and the ways in which they can suffer at work. It has changed the way New College Stamford approaches the issues surrounding menopause in the workplace and is now factored into our approach to flexibility and making reasonable adjustments.'

Carol Hargreaves

Head of HR, New College Stamford

'I attended a training on menopause that Bev gave in Stamford a few months ago. At 47, I had started to experience a number of symptoms that I wasn’t sure were all related to the perimenopause so I felt that I needed to start investigating for myself!
Bev’s training was very enlightening, useful and great fun – not easy with what many consider to be a difficult subject! Not only was it jam packed with factual information but also gave some great ideas on how to mitigate some symptoms in a natural way, alongside the traditional treatments available from your medical care provider.
Bev encouraged a very interactive session and it was great to be able to interrupt and ask questions to get the most out of her impressive knowledge bank.
All in all, I came away with a much greater understanding of what was happening to me and the options available.
Would thoroughly recommend Bev for any training needs you may have.'
