Training facilitators Max and Maya Price speaking at TedxTotnes 2015

A warm yet professional tone was immediately established by the course leader which allowed insightful discussion to take place across both training sessions. I feel that me and my staff were fortunate to have taken part.

School Staff Member

The facilitator was excellent. Not too rigidly set to their own agenda and able to facilitate an open discussion around difficult issues that would have been difficult to manage without them.

School Staff Member

I have had quite a bit of feedback from staff who attended – all of it very positive. They found the training excellent and trainers positive, encouraging and inspiring.

Jacqui Warne- Executive Head Teacher, Bidwell Brook

Was really informative and brought me up to date with knowledge surrounding gender identity.

Everyone has been so positive about the training...many thanks again for your extremely valuable input, we really value our school being able to engage with such a fantastic organisation.

Amelia Robinson, Colyton Grammar School

I recently caught up with Max and Jae at a training event they ran for Prince's Trust mentors. It was one of the best sessions on diversity I have attended, and the feedback was excellent.

Dan Phillips, The Princes Trust

So refreshing not to be looking at a screen and doing the icebreaker games were great. Made me think about how to ensure our setting is LGBTQ friendly and gave me ideas for how to embed some related conversations into daily life.

School Staff Member

Our students are fortunate to be part of community where Proud2Be are actively helping people to come together and find positive and lasting solutions to change things for the better. They do this with knowledge, sensitivity, humour and tact.

Alan Salt, Principal, King Edward VI Community College

Really nice atmosphere in the session. Good combination of sessions content, delivered in a light way. Lots of opportunity to contribute. Very enjoyable and engaging session.

Staff Member- Co Lab, Exeter

I learnt so much! And took away a lot; I work in a youth centre and I have come away and re-evaluated our centre and displays to make sure they promote gender identity and equality.
