"What a powerful session. I have learned so much, thank you so much, Kendra. Best safeguarding session I've ever sat through!"

"Kendra is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most impactful speaker I have ever had the privilege to listen to and learn from in my career as a nurse."

I cant put into words how powerful that was.

20 years working in the sector and I can honestly say it's the best training I've been in.

So moving, raw and real.

"Best training I have been part of in my 30 year, career...Blown away" Met officer, London.

One of the best courses I have attended, had my full attention throughout the whole 3 hours. Loved it from start to finish and I learnt so much. Will recommend the course to others

"I just needed to say that this time last week, myself and my colleagues were recovering from your incredible training. There were tears, offloading texts, and many calls to each other talking about the effect it had had on us."
