1. Communication and feedback

  • Jo has regularly been e-mailing members with feedback survey monkeys for the therapy presentations including Claire Connor, Jo Gibson and Jill Thomas.
  • They have welcomed this feedback and several of their presentations have been put onto the website.  Excellent feedback received from the presenters about the evenings e.g. Jill Thomas.
  • Jo has recently e-mailed the therapy members specifically about feedback from the BAR therapy protocol, to encourage therapy case studies and for suggestions on future therapy speakers/ topics.
  •  In the future the hope is to set up member profiles for members of the group if they wish. The suggestion would be that this would be in the members section in order to access members with certain expertise for advice or support or to see what members have been involved in research.
