The feedback that we have had from staff has been very positive and I would recommend Alison to any other organisation looking for similar nutrition workshops for staff.   closed

"Alison delivered her ‘Tired but Wired’ seminar as part of a month of workplace interventions to improve health and wellbeing of our staff. The session was full of practical and easy advice to maximise quality and quantity of sleep through good nutritional choices. Alison had good rapport with the staff and covered a lot in the short session. The feedback that we have had from staff has been very positive and I would recommend Alison to any other organisation looking for similar nutrition workshops for staff."

The presentation was excellent, and I liked the way it was focused and no-nonsense which was sympathetic to the time-demands on teachers.   closed

"The presentation was excellent, and I liked the way it was focused and no-nonsense which was sympathetic to the time-demands on teachers. Alison clearly knew her subject and all the teachers came away feeling it had been most worthwhile. Alison’s pragmatism was useful meaning that recommendations could be applied easily and economically. It provoked significant conversation and I am sure will benefit both individuals and our institution."

The demonstration was interesting, engaging and interactive; actually getting to taste the produce gave a real idea on what was achievable.   closed

"From an old sceptic who seriously doubted that healthy foods could possibly be tasty I couldn’t have been more wrong. The demonstration was interesting, engaging and interactive; actually getting to taste the produce gave a real idea on what was achievable. The Bulgar wheat salad has now become a regular at home and has often been experimented with by adding different basic ingredients particularly chillies to spice it up in the winter. I found the nutrition workshop / food tasting to be the best session of the entire Wellness Day and would positively encourage people to spare an hour or so and have your taste buds challenged!"

The general feedback from the day was excellent but your session was the one that most participants commented that they are going to use their newly found knowledge to improve their diet!   closed

"I just wanted to write to you personally to thank you for your brilliant presentation and speech at our Health and wellbeing event. The general feedback from the day was excellent but your session was the one that most participants commented that they are going to use their newly found knowledge to improve their diet! I particularly loved your competition and the fibre information was also excellent. You were brilliant Alison and thank you very much."

"I wanted to thank your team for helping to make our annual Health fair a success. The food demonstrations were the most talked about of the event and our staff thought they received a lot of useful information that they could easily take back to work and home and use daily. It was amazing how the simple ingredients could be so tasty, and quick to prepare. Your colleagues where knowledgeable and very approachable, and I know our staff took advantage to ask as many questions as possible. Please thank your colleagues for attending and offering their expertise, and we hope to continue this partnership for future events."

I would not hesitate to recommend your company and will be in touch in order to arrange your services at our event next year.   closed

"Jeny Simpson attended to give food demonstrations. She arrived promptly as arranged and acted professionally throughout what was a hectic day. She was kept busy constantly throughout the day from start to finish but was always polite, cheerful and helpful. Her food demos were exactly what we required, she was constantly busy as trust staff came through. We had a record footfall this year at 330, previous events had a maximum 230. I would not hesitate to recommend your company and will be in touch in order to arrange your services at our event next year."

"I just wanted to write to say thank you for your efforts in organising the ‘Good Mood Food’ talk during our Wellness Week. The feedback has been so positive from the participants, with people enquiring about potential further workshops or MOTs. As promised, the ‘Good Mood Food’ offered a great introductory session for attendees. Laura was a great presenter, having extensive knowledge on the material of the talk and further expertise to answer any questions that materialised."

I would definitely recommend Alison for speaking at client events and look forward to working with her again soon   closed

"Working with Alison was a pleasure. On this occasion, the timescales were very short and she was so professional and produced a top quality presentation. The feedback from the client was excellent and they would welcome the opportunity for her to present again on both the same subject to other employees but also to continue the story of ‘Good Mood Food’ and other areas of nutrition. I would definitely recommend Alison for speaking at client events and look forward to working with her again soon."

"We would like to say thank you so much for coming to talk to us about health and nutrition on Tuesday. I personally got a lot out of the session. The full picture is very persuasive and makes me want to do something about it. I know from what others have said that they really valued the session too.

We found our employees were very engaged with the whole concept of healthy eating and it’s wide ranging benefits.   closed

"We found our employees were very engaged with the whole concept of healthy eating and it’s wide ranging benefits. We also discovered that many of our employees had concerns relating to conflicting views about nutrition; Alison was able to give reasoned advice which was based around fact. We would certainly recommend this service to anyone else. Alison really knew her subject she also asked pertinent questions regarding our companies health and wellbeing before the start of the sessions so she could tailor the demo’s specifically to our requirements."

"Thank you for the Food Demonstration Event held on Wednesday 12th September 2018. The staff really enjoyed it and liked the samples that were given. The staff were intrigued by how easy it was to make a quick and nutritious meal for their lunch and then have a nutritious but interesting snack. The staff have already started thinking about how they can change their lunches to keep themselves sustained throughout the day."

"Alison is very personable and incredibly enthusiastic, which came through in the presentations. Feedback from our employees was outstanding. The key comments we have been that the sessions were very educational and fun. They liked the fact that the information was practical and involved everyday foods available from supermarkets. In addition employees were given the opportunity to have 20 minute one to ones with Alison. Again I had a lot of good feedback and employees wanting to see Alison back again. From a personal perspective I have also made some simple changes to my diet following these sessions and look forward to seeing more. I cannot wait until Good Mood Foods part 2!."
