Rachel ran a full day workshop for our team. What blew me away was how she held everyone’s attention for a full day with engaging content and a personable style. Everyone, across a diverse group of people, thoroughly enjoyed the day and all took some gems away that they felt would improve both their self-awareness and wellbeing. Even those that had attended previous sessions greatly appreciated the refresher and learnt new things. Support Manager Finance Industry

"Te Awamutu Primary School teachers recently attended a full-day Personal Resilience & Well-being workshop and it was an eye-opening experience. Rachel from Sparkhouse was engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. All of the teachers who attended gave amazing feedback on how they were able to take away learnings from the workshop that they could apply in their day-to-day lives. It has definitely shifted people's thinking and opened up a new perspective on personal well-being. Thank you so much for such an amazing workshop!"
