“Tonic has become increasingly pivotal in helping the entire industry, through organisations and individuals, raise its game.”
Rufus Norris, Director, National Theatre

“Working with Tonic never feels ‘off the shelf’. They take time to really understand your organisation, helping you to focus on what you are trying to achieve and working back from your goal to create learning interventions that will affect real change.”
Greg Jauncey, HR and Training Manager, Royal Opera House

“Thought provoking and genuine. Didn’t give in to the temptation to tick boxes or be idealistic.”

“I found the trainer very engaging and it was great to have a course led by someone who understands our industry and therefore ties unconscious bias into the environment we know so well.”

“What’s great about Tonic is that it’s not superficial. The work it’s doing is subtle, nuanced and in depth and that’s what I really appreciate about Tonic.”
Indhu Rubasingham, Artistic Director, Kiln Theatre

“Tonic’s Unconscious Bias training is thoughtful and thought-provoking… It was tailored nicely to our work in the museum sector.  We came away with a really good understanding of what is meant by Unconscious Bias and how we can act differently in future to counter it.”
Kate Parry, Cumbria Museum Consortium Manager

“It was wonderful how the trainer created a relaxed atmosphere, in which different members of the company who don’t always interact, were able to voice their opinions and share their experiences.”
Training participant

“The trainer was a personable facilitator who understood the sector first-hand. She had invested in exploring diversity thoroughly as an issue and was perfectly placed and skilled to lead the work.”
