Comments from previous attendees:

"I just wanted to pass on my thoughts from the Headwest training. To start with Jill comes from an incredible strength in knowledge and experience. Her methods of disseminating her knowledge and experience can only be considered second to none. I believe we are far better people and far better prepared to face some of the situations at work. Jill’s incite and teaching skills made the whole day a great learning experience. I just want to say thank you for this training.  We will never be experts but the more we know, the more we can offer." Bruce, manager

"Thank you for an interesting and informative training session. I now have some great strategies to help me better support clients with an ABI. The information packs are amazing too!”. Michelle, support worker.
