I highly recommend Jo from Rise and Shine Group. Jo recently took our whole firm through the Emotional Culture Deck and the DISC Profiling workshops. Her engaging delivery captivated our team. The tools were interesting and easy to follow and the information gained has provided insights that have greatly enhanced our workplace dynamics and communication.

Jo is unwaveringly passionate about people and culture making her the perfect partner to support us in redefining our culture. Jo has a down to earth approach and is really relatable - we feel she is part of our team. Jo spent time understanding our business and our people to support in delivering a culture redefining program that is unique to us."
