    What our clients say…

    “Springboard has become a regular feature of our training and development programme in the NHS in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with over 500 women having taken part. Time and time again we see participants on the programme take the knowledge and skills developed through the programme to transform their lives and move forward in their careers. Many of these women come to the programme feeling ‘stuck’ in their career or lacking confidence in their ability to progress. During the months on the programme, their self-esteem increases and their confidence grows. This development programme provides the environment for women to take back control of their lives and start moving forward in line with their values, creating greater happiness and satisfaction.”

    Anita Pisani, Deputy Chief Executive & Director of Workforce and Service Redesign NHS

    “I can’t shout out enough about Springboard! The content was invaluable and particularly as a representative of an older demographic it’s so important to believe the company invests in me and values my experience. It’s difficult to convey how such a small investment of my time has had such a huge positive impact on my work, my morale and my performance. I’ve secured a promotion and ma ready to mentor the next generation to grow our own talent pool.”
