Whether you want to hold live, face to face, training for your staff or have access to online training sessions, I have you covered. I can work with your staff on-site or virtually to ensure the best learning environment for your team. This course is fast paced, packed with interesting material, and is engaging and extremely enjoyable with not a power point slide in sight. I can provide half day or full day courses depending on my clients' time constraints. My aim is to remove some of the many misconceptions surrounding disability, give my delegates the tools to interact, communicate with, and lead a variety of disabled people in the right way, and most of all the confidence to do so.
We know that learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. Stacey has been training in almost all aspects of Disability Awareness for over 20 years - She is also a Sign Language Interpreter, specialising in Musical Theatre, a Deafblind Communicator-Guide and has a diploma in Autism Awareness. She currently is the resident Sign Language Interpreter at the Reading Hexagon theatre.
Given that the chances of a person becoming disabled in their life lifetime is extremely high, her passion is to spread the messages in her courses as widely as possible. She firmly believes that this type of training should be available in schools, colleges and universities, not only for the staff, but also for the pupils.
Stacey doesn't believe in PowerPoint presentations or boring people to tears with hefty statistics! All of her training courses are delivered in an up-beat and engaging way with a healthy amount of humour. As a public speaker, she is often booked for after-dinner speeches and conferences to talk to large groups of people about various aspects of disability. She prides herself on being able to get serious messages across using real-life scenarios and thought provoking stories while keeping the audience thoroughly entertained.
She won Channel 4's 'Come Dine With Me' in 2015 (series 34, ep23!) and insists it wasn't her cooking skills that put her in first place, rather more the sign song she performed to her guests! She donated the £1,000 prize to the MS Society in loving memory of her best friend.
She lives on a 60ft widebeam boat on a marina in Berkshire with her little staffie.
In addition to her most popular course, 'Disability Awareness', Stacey also provides courses in Mental Health Awareness, Deaf Awareness, Blind and Visual Impairment Awareness. She has an online sign language course called 'Learn To Sign' and teaches sign language and sign song work shops locally in a face to face environment.
If you are interested in any of the above or would like to talk to her about a public speaking/after dinner event, please feel free to give her a call or drop her an email.
