Dr West developed a highly engaging, interactive program which was tailored to the needs of our team. All members of the team were motivated by the information presented and the way the program was delivered. It was delivered in an active environment over a couple of days which ensured that there were practical outcomes. Dr West managed this very diverse team with different needs extremely well and the feedback and the outcomes were very positive. The team became very aware of the implications and practical outcomes of their lack of exercise and overall approach to their health quickly. The impact of the program was almost immediate with all members of the team starting an exercise club, a healthy work kitchen and a whole new approach to their networking and representational activities.Between them, the group lost over 30kg in 6 months and with the support of HR, implemented fruit deliveries, healthy food options in all state office kitchens and a range of exercise activities for their teams.
Dr Wests’ program included relevant research and materials as well as practical and helpful tools and tips for each member of the team. She is a highly motivational presenter and has a wealth of information to support the all round health and well- being of a workplace team. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to improve the productivity and effectiveness of individuals and teams.
