'Company A' (London) were returning to the office after WFH during the Covid pandemic. They faced issues of anxiety and productivity at being some of the first in the city to return. We designed a workshop with practical, physical solutions, and body awareness tools to manage stress and anxiety. We combined this with breathing exercises to change the way the body responds to stress, increasing wellbeing, health and ultimately productivity. All wrapped up in a fun workshop about the body and voice.
'Company B' (Sydney) were a new team, in a fast-developing company, looking to define their roles within the group. We developed a workshop around leadership and empowerment, with leadership and communication challenges, to help identify those with strong leadership potential by giving them the platform to shine.
'Company C' (UK, National) were a company in transition, with multiple issues. We designed workshops around communication for sample groups from within different parts of the business, to work together to create a music video, based around the noises of their every day jobs. This created an open and frank environment to discuss daily challenges, and solutions that could be found.

Using musical structures to examine hierarchy and effective communication , with musical games to open discussion
According to LinkedIn, this is the most in demand 'soft' skill in business, and the second most in-demand skill in the world (behind cloud-computing, according to the Lindedin economic graph). As more and more tasks become automated, the ability to create new ideas, to spot new opportunities in rapidly changing markets, and how to take advantage of them before the competition is invaluable. But in business we sacrifice creativity, in favour of linear, efficient thinking. We can be highly creative, but that can all get shut down around work. So we need to practice our creative, problem-solving skills, and connect that to our workflow in order for it to be effective.
Courage and team bonding through singing
Genuinely fun for everyone. Singing in front of your workmates sounds terrifying. This workshop teaches you how to conquer that fear. And if you have the skills to conquer that - what other 'impossible' challenge could you take on today? (optional add-on, make an office music video)
New for 2023
In partnership with Helen Allwood, Veterinary Surgeon Team Leader at PDSA, Neurodiversity champion, and mum of 2 (and a half), we are creating courses designed specifically for busy vets working in practice. These courses are designed to make wellbeing for vets part of the workplace culture. Part of the routine. Prioritising vets' mental health now and for future generations.
For Helen and I, this work is so vital, and began as a way to help family, friends and colleagues in the profession. But we quickly realised the need is far greater. As veterinary recruitment and retention plummets, 49% of leavers site chronic stress as one of their main reasons for leaving the profession (BVA report 2021).
We CAN change this. We CAN offer support. We Can create change, and hope that the snowball effect of that can change entire communities.
At the time of writing this, three working vets have lost their lives to poor mental health in the last two weeks. We HAVE to change this.
So we created 'The Vet Project'.
All courses CPD compliant - certificates are issued after attendance
Courses available online (Zoom)
4 hour, 4 module course. Wide-ranging, science based approach to stress management: Build your own practical toolkit. Awareness, physical, thought, patterns, active intervention.
1 hour intensive, rapid change, high info session.
More courses are being designed for 2023, and we are in discussions to meet the specific needs of our vet partners, who are corporate, local and industry-wide.
Formats, delivery and content can be modified within our shared values.
All except one: It must be effective. We want to be pro-active about helping vets and creating real change. On this there is no compromise.
