Our senior managers were engaged and we were very impressed

“Communication with Karen was so thorough and efficient from the start. She took the time to understand our business in a pre-training conference and the training was tailored specifically for our workplace. Our senior managers were engaged in the training and we were very impressed with Karen’s experience and passion to prevent bullying and harassment in the workplace before it’s too late. If you are looking to get your management team on board with preventing bullying in your workplace do not look past Karen’s training”.

One of the best training sessions I have ever attended

“It’s been such a pleasure working with you and SmartCulture, if I ever need Workplace Bullying / Harassment training or any other training that you offer you will be first on my list of people to call. It was one of the best training sessions I have ever attended, and so many people took valuable lessons away from it. I had the Pool Leisure Coordinator tell me that the attitude changed the next day in his team, it’s been so successful so thank you”.

Entertaining, informative and thought provoking

“Karen Maher from SmartCulture presented a Bullying workshop for all staff at the Shoalhaven Region Anglican Schools which was entertaining, informational and thought-provoking. Included were examples relevant to our workplace and Karen’s attention to detail was meticulous, making sure that the presentation was tailored to our needs. I would thoroughly recommend this presentation for those wishing to deal with the issue of bullying in the workplace”.

Such a heavy and important topic you delivered it perfectly

“I’ve received such wonderful feedback on the training. Not just after the sessions but it is still something we talk about and refer to constantly. What is such a heavy and important topic you delivered it perfectly and I can’t wait to use SmartCulture again.”

We have had  excellent feedback from many staff who attended the training, including our own CEO, about how the training was run.

Delivered an exceptional program

“At Stedmans, we were looking to improve our workplace culture and introduce a bullying and harassment program for all of our staff. Due to the nature of our business model we needed someone who could drive this and had a solid understanding of the hospitality sector. Karen came to the table with this experience and was able to deliver an exceptional program. Not only does Karen have experience in hospitality and law, she also has a great deal of compassion and is someone I can trust implicitly to deliver an exceptional training product”.
