“We consider Ann and her team at Open Road Learning an extension of the VINCI Family. Ann has worked with VINCI for over 15 years and has become an integral partner in developing and delivering our L&D needs and supporting the wellbeing of our teams through group initiatives and providing individual support.  Amongst many programmes over the years that Ann has created and delivered for us, Open Road Learning recently co-developed our Industry Accredited Leadership Behavioural Programme, taking our concept and turning it into an outstanding Behavioural and Culture Change Programme that continues to receive high praise and is impacting our teams both professionally and personally. The Programme is currently being developed in different guises to ensure it connects with our entire workforce”

‘I interviewed several MHFA training course providers.  Ann was by far the most professional, flexible and friendly person I came across.  I narrowed down the list and put Ann and a few others forward to a panel, they all said the same thing.  Round peg, round hole.  Ann is a great fit for our people and our business’.

‘At Pay.UK we have worked with Ann and Rachel from ORL over the past year and they have provided us with exceptional support with our health and wellbeing agenda. Our colleagues are very complimentary about their programmes and delivery style. The mental health first aider training was the best feedback from a training provider we have ever received. We look forward to a continued partnership with ORL.’

Sherree Schaefer 
Director of Human Resources, Pay.UK Limited


It has been a pleasure to work with Open Road Learning for over 10 years on various people development programmes. As I have progressed my own career and moved to different organisations, ORL has always strived to get to know the business and understand its own unique development requirements. From Graduate programmes through to middle management ongoing development and more recently their ‘Fit For Purpose’ programme, ORL supports the client in its endeavour to help make us all more resilient to cope with every day pressures and eradicate the stigma around mental health challenges. I see ORL as an important partner to our business. Feedback from their programmes is positive from delegates and if on the rare occasion it is not, they will action a change straight away to continuously improve our offerings“.

People Experience Director, Woodford Ltd 


Our team training was absolutely fantastic. Ann took the brief and made it into an interactive, energetic and engaging session in a very short space of time. We see lots of the staff trainers in our line of work and I have to say that Ann’s presentation and content ranked as one of the best. Thank you so much for your involvement, we look forward to working together in the future“.

In the 14 years that I have worked here, I can honestly say that this was the most enjoyable, motivational and fun training day that I have attended.  It was brilliant how Ann and David got the whole team working together so that we left feeling re-energized and proud to be part of such a wonderful organisation and a dedicated wider team. I actually went to sleep with a big smile on my face and am still buzzing this morning!
