Blog – SoGlos Gloucestershire Business Awards 2022 -We are finalists!

We are completely delighted to receive an email from the lovely team at SoGlos on 6 July 2022, sharing that Tidal Training Direct and Public Hearts Cheltenham Defibrillator Campaign are a finalist in SoGlos Gloucestershire Business Awards 2022.

This nomination for Public Hearts Cheltenham Defibrillator Campaign comes under the category of Corporate Social Responsibility.

It is open to businesses proactively supporting the community through projects or events with not-for-profit objectives, including those relating to the arts, environment, education and specifically charities.   This impactful category is sponsored by Target PR and we’re proud to share this space with finalists Charles Russell Speechlys LLP, Hooray, Procook, Saviant and Cotswold Cup CIC. The co-headline sponsors are fellow Gloucestershire based businesses  Willans LLP and Hazlewoods.

Public Hearts Cheltenham Defibrillator Campaign raises awareness and numbers of life-saving defibrillators in Cheltenham to give someone the best chance on their worst day. It is a collaboration of like-minded businesses and organisations to improve out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates – currently between 3 and 7%. Placing a defibrillator on someone in the first 2 minutes can increase the chances of survival by 80% and with defibs costing relatively little versus the value of life, it’s an absolute must to do whatever we can to save someone when they need it most. Four years ago, there were no public access defibs in Cheltenham town centre. We have facilitated 20, with 3 more scheduled. Plenty exciting news, developments, and successes to share as we head towards the announcements in October later this year!<

Thank you to everyone supporting Public Hearts, including our partnerships with Cheltenham BID (a founding partner), Evans Jones, MJF Electrical and all our defib locations.  Continued thank you’s to the incredible generosity of Bob Holt OBE and Spirax Sarco, as well as Chun Kong at The Mayflower and our sister company Tidal Training Ltd for donating defibrillators and external cabinets.

  • Brilliant course! Amazing to be able to practice CPR with a live link to assessment software. Now I know my skills are going to be effective if ever needed. Very reassuring to have my own CPR dummy for the duration of the course, and super confident of the safety protocols that Clare and the Tidal team have in place.

  • After attending this first aid training I was impressed with the amount of information that was covered in the day as well as being taught in such an engaging manor so the information was retained well. I especially liked that the trainer for the course was an active Paramedic and was able to relate the first aid training to real life scenarios and experiences and share stories which kept the course interesting and gave character to the course. Overall an enjoyable training course which has left me feeling confident in providing many forms of first aid, highly recommended.

    I attended my first course yesterday and what a wonderfully empowering experience it was. The highly trained paramedic teaching put us at ease straight away and I am looking forward to learning more of these invaluable skills. Lovely staff and great communication too. I will be recommending these courses to everyone - thank you.

    Fantastic courses, super friendly and helpful staff and owners. We wouldn't go anywhere else for our emergency first aid at work training.

  • A genuinely lovely company. Very concerned for their clients' happiness and satisfaction. Very professional and organised everything beautifully. The trainers were AMAZING. Really bright and knowledgeable, able to respond to questions, kind, funny, friendly and approachable. Training can sometimes feel only partially useful, but this all felt like things we needed and would use, presented thoughtfully and clearly by brilliant trainers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tidal and will certainly use them again. Thank you!

    Wonderful training day, I now feel so much more confident in delivering First Aid thanks to Tidal Training Direct. I hope I don't need to use my skills but I am pleased I have the confidence and vital knowledge available to help save someone's life.

    BeSocial@theCentre have been using Tidal Training for our staff training needs for a couple of years now and we could not be more pleased with the service and quality of training that they provide. When we contact the office, the staff we speak to are very friendly and helpful – every query or issue we have is always dealt with professionally and efficiently – 100 % customer service satisfaction! The ‘Trainers’ who we have had the pleasure of meeting, either face-to-face or online, have always been fantastic. Very clear in their presentation, knowledgeable in their subject and have made learning enjoyable. Sitting through a dull training session certainly is not on the agenda with Tidal Training! The flexibility and understanding, that BeSocial@theCentre have experienced with Tidal Training during recent months, due to a change in Centre staff and then COVID-19 pressures, has be second to none. Both Clare and Colin have been fantastic in changing dates and fitting our staff members in to different sessions to fit our requirements – We can not thank them enough for their patience with us. Thank you to the whole team at Tidal Training – We will see you at our next session!
