What our clients say

Toni Cairns
Global HR Director, JDE

At JDE we wanted to do what we could to support our people when Covid-19 hit. One of the challenges has been how to manage the mental impact of uncertainty, fear, social isolation, and endless information flooding in. When Jodie brought us Mental Fitness, we knew it was right for us. Mental Fitness is about "working out" our minds so that during tough times, our minds are equipped to help rather than hold us back. Symbia have brought Mental Fitness to life in a way that’s simple, relatable, and useful. I whole heartedly recommend both Symbia and the Mental Fitness program.

 

Wendy Adams
Global CMI Director, Unilever

"Jodie and the Symbia team are not only complete gurus at understanding what teams and individuals need to thrive in life (and therefore work!), but also in how to design and deliver incredibly insightful and impactful sessions to meet those needs... irrespective of meeting format! Their virtual team building capabilities are awesome as their style, their materials and the platforms they use are so flexible and engaging."

Global Wellbeing Lead
Financial services company

"We were joined by over 1000 colleagues globally at the launch event on World Mental Health Day and Jodie did an amazing job engaging the audience throughout with her passion for the subject and natural story telling approach, making complex neuroscience accessible. The feedback from colleagues has been extremely positive (4.5/5 stars) with many colleagues referencing the impact of practical exercises and resources created by Jodie and her team in helping them to reframe negative thinking and develop a more resilient mindset.”

 

Rosie O’Malley
Global Innovation Director, Unilever

"A year or so ago, we were working on individual purpose with our team and with Symbia’s help this has been an inspiring and enriching experience. Symbia’s sessions are perfectly pitched – not too lofty, easy to engage with and the right mix of input and reflection. The impact on individuals is fabulous to see – some get from zero to ‘I’ve cracked it’ in a day, others reflect for a bit longer – but wherever you end up at the end of a day, it’s a better place to where you started the day. You may feel like you’ve had a kick up the back side, but for sure you’ll have a smile on your face."

 

Emilien Moyon
Program Director, Berklee College of Music

"Symbia has a unique ability to tie together complex theories and concepts in an easy to understand yet powerful way. You can’t help but be empowered by this and to want to put everything you learn into action. ".

 

Noreen O’Prey
Global HR Director, WGSN

"Symbia is an inspiring, thought provoking team of facilitators and coaches. They designed and ran several workshops for us that challenged the delegates’ views of themselves and how they view their interaction in the workforce. I am excited to work with them again, particularly in a global capacity. They provide substantial results in a short period of time."

 

Trish Rajo Brea
CMI Capabilities Lead, Unilever

“We’ve run a year-long, fully virtual program for two consecutive years for a global audience, mainly focused on leadership skills, building inner confidence, resilience and a growth mindset. The feedback and engagement was very strong. Repeating for a second year was testament to its success in the first year! Jodie and her team managed to somehow keep over 100 people actively engaged and growing. Those who embraced the program have defined it as life changing.”

 

Trish McLoughlin
Senior Consumer Insights Manager, Unilever

"A highly engaging partner in raising team confidence and self-esteem. Jodie and her team’s positive energy has inspired our team to crack even the hardest of challenges in a short period of time. They are natural motivators, and their focus on nailing the end goal makes them a highly valued partner”
