This is an exciting time for companies to embrace the changes an organisation needs to face.
Below is a selection of comments from some of our valued clients.
Talking Menopause offers a well-informed and organisation-specific insight into the effects of the menopause and support for those experiencing it, and practical understanding and workplace considerations for their managers.
Their workshops have helped to improve many women’s menopause experience, helping them to understand what’s happening to them along with sound and practical advice about managing their symptoms and working life. Their approach to facilitating workshops is fresh and inviting and audiences feel engaged and enlightened.

Thanks for providing insight, myth busting tips & making menopause discussions easy for me as a man and a leader - the day was a huge success and delegates were inspired.
Chief Constable James Vaughan, Dorset Police
The menopause workshop exceeded expectations; 100% brilliant, informative and engaging. This should be mandatory for all managers.
Senior Leader, Civil Service
The Talking Menopause team have delivered a broad range of support and development for Devon and Cornwall Police. This includes Menopause training for line managers, single points of contact and most importantly female staff. The team have helped the force to deliver important messages, build a strategy to understand and improve the force response to the Menopause and encourage an environment where women can thrive during a potentially challenging time of their life.
The way Sarah and Linda deliver the inputs and engage the audience is inspiring, particularly how they share personal stories and reflections, get people to open up and utilise other guest speakers to deliver the most up to date medical and nutritional information. Thanks ladies for helping us to support our people and make a difference to women in the service.
Chief Superintendent Sam De Reya, Devon & Cornwall Police
Very informative & insightful – disturbing that women feel ashamed; we need to tackle it.
Partner, Heidrick & Struggles
Your presentation was amazing and so interesting, thank you; you pieced the jigsaw together for me.

Your menopause webinar is a phenomenon!
Director, BT plc
The menopause session was very useful. A re-emphasis for all staff that whatever the issue - be comfortable to realise it and talk openly.
The menopause session was excellent [and it’s] very refreshing to have these issues discussed in the workplace.
The menopause speaker was excellent!
A fab session on menopause [that] highlighted issues not discussed.
The menopause session should be rolled out to all staff. [It’s] important for everyone to understand, not just managers.

Quote from staff attending Talking Menopause workshop for Catalyst Housing
Nationally, menopause has become a much more talked about topic and it was particularly important for us as a Service, to understand how we can support our employees’, together with offering practical advice and guidance to managers about how they can support their staff.
Being a predominately male environment, we knew that there would be some resistance to the training offered, however, through effective communication, managers were clear about why this was being made mandatory and the benefits to their stations, watches and teams.
To date, Talking Menopause have delivered 5 sessions and over 80 managers have attended these. There are further sessions planned for later in the year and over 30 managers are already booked to attend these events.
Feedback from the training to date has been positive with comments such as:
“Really helpful due to my lack of knowledge on the subject”
“I will be more open and approachable about the subject”
“It was really helpful and much better than expected!”
