•To provide field relevant training and development programs and other learning resource materials in facilitating the personal and professional development of staff, volunteers and individuals involved with or served by criminal justice social service and other human service agencies.

•To develop policies, processes and the commitment of resources to support the improvement of services to individuals through presentations at conferences, participation in national and international networks, facilitation of collaborative action through regional/provincial training committees and fund raising campaigns.

"Just wanted to say hello, and tell you how pleased we were with the training sessions that Tom did at our school in the last two weeks.  He was excellent - adaptable, honest, helpful, and smart, and really personalized the presentation to our needs.   It was very valuable learning for our staff, and presented in a meaningful and powerful way".


"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I had the opportunity to attend the Understanding Mental Illness class taught by one Tom Walker last week in London.  In my 14 years  in Autism Services, I have never ONCE had the privilege of sitting in on an education or training handled as brilliantly as this one.  Mr. Walker was an absolute phenom, the perfect balance of teacher and facilitator, providing practical concrete examples from his own experiences and drawing the group INTO the discussion and using their experiences to keep EVERYONE involved and excited".

"I honestly could not GUSH anymore about his presentation.  I consider it an honour and a privilege to have been a part of it, and thought it would be the least I could do to let you all know how touched I have been by the entire experience".

"In the past 5 days, I have passed on his contact to every director, manager and coordinator at my organization, as well as the Alzheimer’s Society of Dufferin" (my wife is the First Link Coordinator there).

"Keep on providing fantastic talents like Tom Walker to help people help people".

Thanks so much.

"I really enjoyed this seminar. It was very applicable to my role as an employee in the healthcare field, and working with our clientele. These sessions should be held more frequently to keep staff sharp, in order to help prevent injuries, and give us further knowledge on how to deal, and help our clients before something serious occurs, which could be prevented by taking this training course".

"Very well taught great instructor"!

"Instructor was informative, and made the day flow, so it was interesting and kept my attention".

"Instructor was great, very interactive and gave practical ideas".

"Kristin was a great instructor, very personable, understandable and fun".

"Great job! I was interested the entire day. Very engaging"(haven't always had this in training)

"Great facilitator! Good energy, informative and practical". 

"Great Job! Thank you for making this fun and entertaining".

"Having worked in my current position for almost 12 years, and in a custody setting prior to that, I had low expectations re: learning something new. The workshop far exceeded my expectations".

"Awesome! Very interesting, interactive, high energy. Very knowledgeable facilitator with an incredibly relaxed and approachable fun attitude. Loved the entire day"!  Thank you! 

Hey Tom,
"I just wanted to say thanks again for the VT training you did up here in Parry Sound. You have been the talk of the agency. Everyone took something away from that training.
Everyone is using your little quips whether it be the s#*$$! committee or don't walk in the other persons shoes... look at the shoes, like the shoes".
Thanks again! "It was wonderful and I hope we can get you back up here sometime".
