Belinda’s work has always been driven largely by the fascination with how people inter-act and how people work productively/creatively in teams; with passion and confidence. Her enthusiastic spirit and genuine belief that; ‘everyone should have the opportunity to be heard’ has brought about great change in people’s lives, on a personal and professional level.

Belinda is an invaluable member of Business 2 PLAY bringing her ‘joie de vie’ and her wealth of knowledge in training and the delivery of person-centred courses. She guarantees that your work-force will feel uplifted, re-vitalised and work more co-operatively and cohesively after a Business 2 PLAY course has been undertaken.

I have seen it turn around a company’s work-force time and time again.

In companies, PLAY can provide a secure environment for establishing original ideas regarding market opportunities, producing debate concerning chief strategic questions, confronting antiquated suppositions and constructing a true sense of common purpose. Creating an energised, inspired, ‘thinking outside the box’, productive team can bring about great transformation for you and your company. This is not rhetoric – it really does work.
