building better environments

From velodromes to virtual meetings, it's hard to perform if your environment isn't right for you. Using research, education, and collaborative action planning for tangible change, drivetrain helps organisations to improve the day to day experience of their people for everyone's long term gain.

Deena has designed and delivered local, regional and national projects to provide better environments for children and adults in sport and beyond. She's seen projects succeed and fail. Positive impact doesn't come from bureaucratic change programmes and publishing policies; positive impact comes from a willingness to learn, adapt, act and - most of all - put your people first. 

If you want to build high-performing environments where everyone wins, drivetrain can help.
