Wellbeing training from Suffolk Mind “makes good business sense” says top regional solicitor firm.
Suffolk Mind asked – What did you and your staff think about the training by Suffolk Mind?
Excellent! We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from staff (even from those who may have initially been a bit apprehensive about having the training). It provided a real buzz with staff in the offices and I can’t speak more highly of the trainers – incredibly knowledgeable and presented the topic in a very easy and relaxed way. They pitched the subject matter perfectly to the audience.
