We had 550 employees split across the UK, US and APAC who all needed to attend virtual Active Bystander training. I wanted it done in a condensed rollout period of 2 weeks to kick start a significant culture and behavioural change programme. It’s nerve-wracking to be responsible for choosing and implementing a mandatory training session on such an important topic, and I knew we had to get it right first time because word would soon spread if the experience wasn’t great. I found The Active Bystander Training Company just by Googling and was impressed with the clarity of their website. They responded to my initial enquiry, and every email since, extremely quickly. From the template I was asked to complete ahead of the sessions, to the choice of scenarios for the session itself and skill of the trainers, they are really professional from start to finish. We had every level of employee, even Board Non-Exec Directors, attend a session and the feedback was excellent. 98% say the content was ‘very’ or ’somewhat’ helpful very helpful, and 95% say they will put the learning into practice. I would unhesitatingly recommend The Active Bystander Training Company to anyone.

Scott recently delivered bespoke active bystander training sessions to CPS Wessex staff for our operational delivery and legal staff. He delivered these sessions brilliantly completely unaware that I was observing. It is difficult to change cultures in organisations and get individuals to take ownership for their behaviours and the behaviours of others. Scott was great, at moving us along that path. The course was inclusive but not intimidating and it generated a great deal of thought and input from the delegates. There is no doubt that the contents resonated with them and in doing provided the tools to empower the delegates to act differently going forward. I would thoroughly recommend the session to others.

The speaker was wonderful in the profession of speaking, and also in the content. He started off in a manner that captured everyone's attention (with topical stories) and built interest in how we can stop that happening in future, and he used very engaging question sessions that made us all think. There wasn't necessarily a right answer, but rather the process made us think what we would do, so that we can get into the habit of doing something. Very clever, very useful and much appreciated. Please pass on my thanks to Scott Solder.
