“The Alcohol Awareness training delivered by Lauren from Alcohol Concern was exactly what our managers needed. Although we have an Alcohol policy many of our managers had said that they would not know how to approach an employee who had an alcohol related issue.
The training provided has given our managers the tools and the confidence they need to deal with any alcohol issues and the knowledge of how best to provide help and support. The training is an important element of the Corporate Health Standard which we are aiming to achieve at Gold standard”
Human Resources Manager
“The workshop provoked follow up discussions, and one important short-term action which was the purchasing of breathalyser kits for our sales team to keep in their cars. Subsequently we have also now instigated a project to look at our whole approach to substance misuse, and we hope a company-wide policy will be introduced later in the year.
“I cannot recommend Lauren [and the organisation] highly enough for their professional, engaging, and thought-provoking workshops."
Business Insight Manager
“Many Eversheds training courses aim to help HR practitioners, and those responsible for employment policy, to improve their understanding of current workplace issues and new legal developments.
“Addiction and wellbeing is an area that is often overlooked and Alcohol Concern provided a perfect complimentary perspective to our expertise.”
Head of Client Training
“Just a note to say how instructive and enjoyable the training day was. Lauren Booker was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer who managed to engage well and hold our attention.
Many thanks for a valuable service.”
“This was the first time we had used an outside consultant and we were apprehensive, but Lauren understood what we needed and knew how to make our project come to life. She kept us up to date on progress and gave great feedback and suggestions. She was also very professional and flexible when we had to veer off on a different course. We will definitely be calling her for our next project.”
J.L., Service Manager
“This is the very first training course I have attended in more than 20 years that within half an hour of the course commencing, I knew I would be gaining relevant knowledge to take back to work and my colleagues and be able to implement it straight away. Great course and trainer. Thank you, Lauren. Well worth signing up for.”
Y.G., Mental Health Worker
“Just wanted to say thanks again for your training session and also the inspiration that you have given me. I have wanted to set up my own substance misuse consultancy for some years now but as I explained I got a little disheartened over the past couple of years, you have rekindled that passion today.”
