Training facilitators Jae and Max Price speaking at TedxTotnes 2015

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

I just wanted to thank you for the workshop you ran for us on Saturday afternoon; it really got the learners thinking about gender and difference in general. What a fabulous and extremely connective way to present it - your openness and willingness to discuss each and every question that was raised was remarkable.

Julie Wyman, Devon Counselling College

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

Youth Worker- Space*

A comfortable environment was created immediately by the trainers and they showed an understanding of our school's ethos very quickly. I highly recommend them and the content.

Staff Member, Special School in Devon

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

Jacqui Warne- Executive Head Teacher, Bidwell Brook

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.

Youth Worker- Space*

Maya and Max were really great. Their contact before, during and after the training sessions was brilliant and the training was engaging and pitched at the right level for the team.

Staff Member, Children's Home in Devon

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.

Max was an excellent trainer, creating a safe, non judgemental and professional environment to explore thought and ideas whilst learning new terminology. All staff enjoyed the sessions and gained understanding and confidence. The work on stereotypes and scenarios were really useful. Thank you.

Head of Primary School in Devon

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

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

The training was really helpful, Max and Maya executed it brilliantly, they were understanding and informative. When people say its a 'safe space' that is often just because they have to and really you still feel you could be judged, where as with this training it really did feel safe and completely open to ideas, thoughts and feelings.

Staff Member, Special School in Devon

I recently caught up with Max and Maya 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

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.
