From “The Human Factor in Business” by Benjamin Seebohm Rowntree

If you’re organising a workshop, you want your attendees to go away with something truly valuable. Something they can take away and use in their daily life and work. That’s where I can help you.

Each workshop is tailored for you, your organisation and the kind of people who will be attending. Workshops are a mix of presentations, solo work and group activities. Each participant is encouraged to use or discard the tools and worksheets as they see fit, so they leave the workshop with a bespoke toolkit designed around them, their needs, and the way they work.

I offer the following 3 workshops.

Neurodiversity workshop

If you’d like to learn about how to work with neurodiverse colleagues, and serve neurodiverse clients, this is for you.

Neurodiversity covers: ADHD, autism, dyslexia and dyscalculia. About half of neurodiverse people also suffer mental health issues, so the workshop covers this too.

I will help you and your staff learn what neurodiversity is and how you can be accessible to neurodiverse clients. I can also help you understand the needs of your neurodiverse staff and – crucially – work with you to draw out their unique skills so they can work to their strengths.

Time management

Time management is one of the biggest struggles for neurodiverse people – and for neurotypical (normal) people too!

I do time management workshops for creatives, academics, and neurodiverse entrepreneurs. I can adapt any of these for your staff too, whether they’re neurotypical, neurodiverse, or a mix.

In the workshops, I help people understand that time management encompasses managing stress, energy and other environmental factors too. Attendees are given the time and space to discover and develop their own routines – working out what they want out of each day and understanding how they can get there.

We look at both the big picture and the small details at the same time, combining these to find unique, tailored solutions for every individual’s time management needs.

Work/life balance

I offer the work/life balance workshop to entrepreneurs and busy parents.

The reason for this is that busy parents have a lot of similar issues to entrepreneurs – juggling lots of different tasks, always feeling like there are never enough hours in the day, and finding they run out of energy before they reach the end of their “to do” list.

I start by helping people discover and understand their long-term dreams and goals. Then we can work out how to prioritise and categorise everything they need to do to get there. I show them how to deal with overwhelm, work out a plan B for when things go wrong, and help them manage their stress and energy levels.

What you get out of my workshops

No matter which workshop you choose, you are guaranteed that you will have a trainer who understands that each attendee has individual needs. As an accessibility expert, with lived experience of neurodiversity, I can make sure each person is included, valued and has their needs understood and respected.

There are lots of activities to help attendees learn, and we use a lot of tools to make it fun. Attendees say: “I thought it was going to be like work but it was much more enjoyable than I expected.” I believe people learn better when they’re engaged. In fact, all the information and advice I share, plus my training techniques, are backed by scientific evidence.

We have a huge range worksheets to use during the sessions, and each person is encouraged to use only the ones that they feel work for them – building a bespoke toolkit that they can take away with them and use in the future.

“Really informative workshop in a relaxed, informal location.”
