"Liggy's presentation style was a fun, lively and interactive and this was without a doubt, the most positive and productive masterclass I have ever attended. Not only was it full of meaningful content, but it provided useful actions which were simple to adopt and consequently it has already started to make a difference for me, my family and my work - nice to be part of something where everyone benefits!".
Paul R Maney, Head of Strategic Planning, Leeds Council
"In the complex world of stress management courses are plentiful - but to achieve understanding and long term behavioural change the delivery of information is critical. Liggy Webb is one of those gifted individuals who make people want to change. Her knowledge and understanding of the subject is immense and she exudes passion and enthusiasm. Liggy is able, within her writing and courses, to engage people from the minute you meet and you leave her feeling you want to make sustainable changes to your lifestyle. A truly motivational person".
