Emma Bill, Energy Saving Trust

"Lizzie delivered an excellent and engaging presentation to Energy Saving Trust, sharing her expert knowledge and insights from her own experiences of autism and ADHD. Feedback from attendees included that the session was super informative, interesting, valuable, and incredibly helpful to many of us – personally and professionally. Overall, the session was a great way to inform colleagues and raise awareness on neurodivergence and how to be an ally in the workplace. We would highly recommend Lizzie as a speaker."

Manager Training 

Managers have been found to have as much impact on a person's happiness and stress levels as their spouse. For a Neurodivergent person struggling to advocate for themselves on a topic their manager has never heard about let alone been trained on, this increases exponentially. Our Neurodiversity Training for Managers is designed to tackle this gap in information, by explaining concepts like the double empathy problem, rejection sensitive disphoria, and pathological demand avoidance (among others) in a digesitble way - and most importantly following this up with actionable tips to achieve the best outcomes with Neurodivergent direct reports. We'll also cover accommodations, sign-posting to resources, and share plenty of lived-experience examples along the way. Please note this Training requires an investment of at least 3x 1 hour sessions.

3

Accommodations Training

Knowing what accommodations to make available to Neurodivergent people can feel impossible. It requires exploring ways of working that you may not have considered in the past. Never fear! This training covers: - the basics of the regulatory framework on accommodations, tailored to your Country - accommodations processes and sign-posting - accommodation ideas for Neurodivergent people and why these may help (knowing that accommodations will necessarily be tailored to the individual) - how to bake accommodations into your culture and policies, relieving the burden on your Neurodivergent employees even further

C-Suite Training

The first and most crucial step to creating a more neuro-inclusive workplace environment is ensuring leadership buy-in. This session is designed to secure that, relying on the latest data and reporting in the Neurodiversity field. Bringing in a third party to share this information in a factual and easy to understand manner can be the key to unlocking this essential leadership support.

5

Focus Group Facilitation

One the the most essential steps to creaing more neuro-inclusive workplaces is creating space for employees to safely share their experiences. Having a third party facilitate these sessions can add a layer of safety, as all feedback can remain anonymous and fear of retaliation is removed. Having a facilitator who is both certified in DEI and as a Coach ensures that your employees are in the best possible hands. After the session, your employee's feedback will be summarized into an easily digestible report, with key recommendations for action noted.

6

Neurodivergent Staff

While 'introduction to neurodiversity' trainings can be an amazing starting point for many of your employees, those who are neurodivergent are likely in need of more tailored training. This session covers a variety of topics, including vital areas like self advocacy and accommodations. We'll also utilise group coaching methods to discuss and share ideas for thriving in the workplace.
