Our seminars, webinars and clinics provide:

* Not only for working parents…
Our seminars on caring, balance and boundaries, wellbeing and mental health can be aimed at your whole working community with a broader reach based on your specifications.
We wanted to extend our warmest thanks for an excellent seminar today on emotional resilience attended by 120 people. You’ve left us with very pragmatic tools and techniques and the case studies and real life examples really brought this to life and made for a very enjoyable hour.
The speaker was so knowledgeable, incredible how many subjects were covered and it was really easy to digest the information. It made me aware of the issues for the elderly, and made me think how I need to plan my own retirement.
Of the feedback we received, the speaker received 100% at ‘excellent’…What really came through in the quant feedback was how clear, knowledgeable and informative she was; they learnt a lot in a short space of time.
Thank you so much for helping to organise yesterday's session. The feedback we have received has been incredible, so many positive comments… back on the floor it was such a positive vibe and your content really resonated
One of my colleagues from the organising committee had 3 people come up to her on the way back to her desk to say how much they enjoyed the session which is testament to how well received the session was.
Our speaker was fantastic. Huge energy, really engaging and clearly knows her topic inside and out. The audience really liked her, and I thought her approach was a great balance of the scientific and the practical.
This was the first event to take place during our Diversity Awareness Month and it was a great start the month's activities. He was a great speaker who managed to tackle a rather depressing issue in a really engaging way...I certainly didn't think I would be laughing...or crying for that matter!
Lunchtime seminars are delivered on the company’s premises for the convenience of your staff. They usually run for 60 minutes and include an interactive presentation and time for Q&A. Our speakers remain after the talk to answer individual questions.
Audience size can vary from very small to very large.
Most of our lunchtime talks can also be delivered as webinars either on the company premises or off site where the invitations, hosting, recording and post event follow up is managed by The Parent Company.
Webinars work especially well for companies whose employees work in different locations or time zones or where an hour at lunchtime is not practical for many employees.
Often parents need the opportunity to have one-to-one time with a professional to discuss their own particular family situation in privacy and with complete focus. Our clinics fulfil this need.
Sessions take place in 25 minutes slots in a private room at the company’s premises. Often a speaker will run clinics either side of a lunchtime seminar.
National Awareness Dates
Themed talks that chime with national awareness days have added impact because of the media attention. We curate a programme of talks to fit each theme.
These include Children’s Mental Health Week, International Men’s Day, International Women’s Day, Anti Bullying Week, Wellbeing Week, Carers week, Healthy Eating week, Mental Health Awareness Week.
Bring your child to work day
Children get a glimpse into their parents’ working world, meet their colleagues, and gain a better understanding of what it is their parents actually do all day long. We arrange activities for both children and adults to make it a fun and inspiring day.
Executive Coaching for Working Parents
