Invited specialist keynote Speakers at Conferences, we focus on advanced approaches to evidence based design for wellbeing.
We share advanced, outcomes first, thinking in the built environment and the behavioral / cultural / psycho-social environment.
We are active and positive contributors, supporting sectors passionate about wellbeing and evidence based approaches to the built and behavioral environment.
We contribute articles to online and print media, as well as publishing and releasing our own material.
We meet with leading researchers, sometimes we head abroad to do this and sometimes, thinkers abroad head here to meet us...
A Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Traveling Fellowship supported William to visit acclaimed experts and environments of care and wellbeing in Australia, The Netherlands & Canada.
Sometimes it's not about traveling abroad, but meeting the people your work is aiming to support, and discussing our approach and thinking with them - making sure it checks out with those who need it most.
