Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it, please browse below to read organisational and employee testimonials about WOMBA and to get a sense of what it’s like to work with us and the benefits we can bring.

Dido Harding, former CEO of TalkTalk Group

 

“WOMBA facilitated a ‘Working & Parenting Well’ Zoom session for our
Government Legal Department Parents’ Network.   Not only was it tailored to
our needs through pre-session surveys but there was the chance for those
joining the Zoom call to interact in really innovative ways via real-time surveys
and through the chat function. Having an experienced moderator and chair
from WOMBA allowed us to focus on getting the most out of it. The call
provided an invaluable and user-friendly support session for our network at
this hugely challenging time for parents. Thank you!”
