“AMC² delivered a very good stress awareness course to around 120 office-based staff, in a number of sessions. The feedback from these was extremely positive and well above what we expected. What I appreciated as a manager was her style of delivery and easy manner; but she didn’t pull back from direct messages about individual responsibility. Everyone left the course with some useful stress management techniques”
“We were very satisfied with the coaching services you provided. Our employee is now much more effective”
DHL International Logistics Company
“Overall rating of your course was extremely high and our employees now have a better understanding of the stress issues and how to apply the Management Standards”
EFM Facilities Management Company
“The information from our stress risk audit is extensive and so useful in determining our action planning”
Micro Electronics Company
“Thank you so much for your inspirational talk yesterday. Although you only had 30 minutes, you really managed to get the message across. I came away feeling inspired and, although I believe I have a positive mental attitude, my husband has MS and sometimes feels negative about the situation. I raved about your talk when I got home and I’m sure just a few of your tips will make a difference. “
