  1. :

    We were referred by another business to use SNM. We decided on this journey because it was safe, easy for all, and not too long a commitment. We were after some leadership feedback and the SNM team delivered this in a neat package with a meticulous write up.

  2. :

    I sent my team of workers on this journey to bond and get out of the work grind. We wanted to see what change they would come back with and such a culture shock when in the office. Positive and vibrant conversations around the kitchen. Very effective and we got a lot out of the personality profiling write-ups. Looking forward to the next team event with SNM
