QUALIFICATIONS, RECOGNITION & FEATURES

MADE THE PRESENTATION SO ENGAGING!

Janine provided training on the approaches, tools and powers available to tackle ASB involving young people to an in person multi-agency event we ran in September 2022. The event had approximately 50 attendees from a range of agencies including Warwickshire County Council, District and Borough Councils, Police, Youth Justice and Fire and Rescue. She provided a two hour input, followed by a question and answer session after the lunch break. Janine was very easy to communicate with from our initial enquiry to the event itself, and was happy to plan and adapt her session to meet our brief. We received very positive feedback from delegates on the day, with people commenting on the great job she did in making a long presentation slot so engaging. Feedback from the workshop session held after Janine’s input suggests partners will be looking to incorporate lots of her suggestions into their case management moving forward.”
