What people say about In Equilibrium courses

University of Dundee

“The group were so impressed with the course they have requested a follow-up in six months to measure how, as a group, they have addressed their plans and what they have achieved. I would recommend In Equilibrium to anyone who provides training for their staff, as their approach to training is extremely professional.”

Renfrewshire Council

“It was also refreshing to attend a course with real practical tips and examples instead of the theoretical lectures so many other organisations produce.”

Biffa Waste Services

“The course, which has been rolled out to all our Managers, has been extremely well received and has provided practical and helpful advice in tackling, managing and reducing stress in the workplace.”
