Customer testimonials

What love hearing from our customers, here’s what some of our clients who have completed training with us had to say about Do-IT…

BT

Group Diversity & Inclusion Lead, Giles M Barker, BT

“We have had the pleasure of Amanda facilitating two excellent neurodiversity training sessions as part of our Disability Rapid Action Plan. The first took us through an introduction to neurodiversity and the second looked at neurodiversity and children. These created a lot of engagement and questions from the large audiences that attended both sessions.”

People Partner, Karina Olver, FSCS

“The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has recently worked closely with Do-IT Profiler and Dr. Amanda Kirby to progress our inclusivity work with a particular focus on Neurodiversity and how we can best support our colleagues. Dr. Kirby held an informative learning session on Neurodiversity with our colleagues, which was invaluable for all that attended. We also undertook the Neurodiversity Confident – Gap Analysis and Disability Confident – Gap Analysis which helped us highlight any areas for development where we could take further steps to improve our ways of working and processes. We are proud that we have recently received our Disability Confident Leader status, and Do-It Profiler has been instrumental with their guidance and support in helping us achieve this.”

Director of People and Operations, Liz Delaney, The Donaldson Trust

“The Embracing Neurodiversity module has provided an excellent basis for further developing our staff’s knowledge of neurodiversity and of types of neurodivergence. It has facilitated a shared understanding of our inclusive approach and use of language, enabling staff to consider neurodiversity in different contexts, beyond the direct support we deliver to individuals with neurodiversities to include others such as colleagues and visitors to our premises. This in turn has ensured positivity and proactivity in adjusting our practices and the environment to be more inclusive.”

Lauren Gallagher, Post Office

“Do-IT’s insights are particularly relevant to us right now as we work on building an inclusive culture at Post Office – one where every colleague can bring their whole self to work and know that their unique contribution is valued. There are a number of practical things we will take away from Amanda’s session that will help us shape this kind of environment to support neurodiverse colleagues, and to help educate the wider business on the subject.”
