"Braden's aroha and genuine care for the safety of those participating made this training feel serious, but not emotionally heavy or draining. His ability to not only acknowledge but demonstrate and incorporate aspects of Te Ao Māori tikanga was truly humbling.
"Respectful, helpful, insightful, professional, and tackled the important topics that most other trainings don’t get into it. Most of all, practical and applicable.”"


"Thank you for the great training. It increased my understanding of reports of concern and the legislation surrounding child protection."
