Testimonials:
Client 1 (Corporate Sector):

Client Project Leader:

“The real appeal of PRM’s The Diversity Challenge is that it takes diversity issues beyond what other training is trying to achieve. It’s not a box ticking exercise. After years of being hit with the mantra of equal opps, BME and diversity this suddenly helps employees to believe it has a purpose.”

Feedback from trainees:

Revealed diversity as a practical way to improve customer care and business in general
I will take forward how important diversity is as a business opportunity
It helped me realise that diversity is not just a moral issue but can also be an efficient business tool
The frank talking made for effective interaction
Very enjoyable and extremely informative workshop that I feel can be used in my normal day of work and in life
The sessions were unexpectedly energetic and we talked in business terms
I will consider how diversity impacts on all aspects of my team’s work and ensure that it isrecognised, understood and considered
The concentration on culture change issues was most useful

Client 2 (Central Government):

Client Project Leader:

“During my career I have been on a number of diversity workshops. It’s clearly an important area, and I wanted my team to do some collective thinking about diversity, but I didn’t want the same old stuff we’ve all experienced before. Harish tailored his “Diversity Challenge” workshop for us, and ran it twice, with half the team attending each session. The feedback shows how highly staff regarded both the workshop, and Harish himself. He has an unusual but extremely useful perspective, clearly linking diversity to achieving business benefits.”  

Feedback from trainees:

Not the usual diversity training – useful for clarifying what diversity means for us and its benefits
Moved beyond ‘usual’ theory to ask interesting questions to think through the issues
Much less of a pc approach and therefore more useful in terms of boundaries / limitations / application in real life situations
I expected to be lectured at but this was not the case
An opportunity to apply more detail to the work in question
A good non-threatening environment in which to better understand a realistic application of diversity within our project
Not the standard training that I have done before; the tie-in to business benefits etc made it feel more real
Very useful and practical session
The course was very real and examples of our work were used where possible – not a typical diversity course.

Client 3 (Non-Departmental Public Body):

Client Project Leader:

“I am writing to thank you for providing the above event for our Diversity Management Team, and to let you know how much everyone enjoyed and benefited from the workshop.
It was clear that you had tailored this event to meet our specific needs, and you did an excellent job of directing and focusing our energies on the main objective – developing a realistic and effective action plan for embedding diversity within our organisation.
Although we had already made a reasonable start, through improvements to our facilities and the introduction of new practices, you have now given us the fresh impetus and direction to tackle the less obvious and harder-to-achieve aspects of equal opportunities and diversity.
Your whole approach was refreshingly realistic and we are hopeful that we can hold on to that realism as we start to implement our new plan.” 

Client 4 (Voluntary Sector):

Client Project Leader:
“This one day workshop was very well received by managers. Most of them had undertaken diversity training in the past and there was a risk that they may have felt that this day was a waste of their time or was patronising. This turned out not to be the case and all of them werepleased that the day was very practical and business focussed, looking at how diversity can help the organisation. We have come away with a number of practical tasks to undertake which are manageable and relevant.”
