Birgit is a German national who got her first degree from the University of Berlin, studying languages, psychology, and public law. As a student, she helped to organise a reconciliation project with Holocaust survivors from various countries, was in charge of several German-Israeli youth exchanges and involved in many international courses and conferences. She did further studies in Germany, Israel and Canada, and, after moving to Britain over twenty years ago, was also awarded an MA from Bath University.
Fluent in German, English and French, she was Somerset’s local government officer responsible for Franco-British relations at regional level for many years. During this time, she co-ordinated numerous European projects.
Her interest in psychology, human relationships and group dynamics goes back a long way. Her personal journey of transformation intensified when she encountered non-violent communication methods (NVC) through Leonard Daniels from the Learning Foundation. After attending a DeLorre training programme run by David Law, Birgit discovered what it really means to work on (your)self. She currently fulfils the development function for DeLorre.
Brenda is a graduate of Abertay University with an honours degree in commerce, majoring in economics.
As a manager and a member of Dundee City Council’s Revenues Division she was pivotal in transforming working practices and developed a bespoke software application, introducing mobile technology and up-skilling staff. This work won the Institute of Rating, Revenues & Valuation’s (IRRV) Excellence in IT Scottish award.
Later, as a Development Officer with Warwickshire County Council’s Planning, Performance & Business Improvement Team, she carried out service efficiency reviews and council-wide performance reporting, thereby assisting in the council’s comprehensive Transformation Programme.
Brenda was first introduced to applied psychology training when she commissioned DeLorre (under its earlier name) to deliver both management and staff development programmes to personnel at Dundee Council. She then privately attended personal development programmes by DeLorre and eventually became their administrator.
After leaving Newcastle University, where he studied Engineering, Tom started a career in sales, marketing and management. His first project was a small internet company called Virtual Internet. It was a small start-up when Tom joined and, within three years, it floated on the stock exchange for £85 million. Tom then founded another new internet services business called Ration One. He developed and nurtured it until it too was a healthy, thriving company before moving on again.
After selling his share in Ration One, Tom transferred his skills to the property sector where he spent 5 years. Starting in estate agency, he then moved to a property investment company purchasing stock for portfolios.
After this thorough grounding, Tom started up on his own. He refurbished a couple of houses then started working to build his own property portfolio. Tom is currently developing a site in South Somerset for holiday letting.
Tom’s interest in personal development brought him into contact with DeLorre and, after attending several of their workshops, he also began qualifying for his counselling diploma at the prestigious Iron Mill College. Tom maintained his links with DeLorre by offering to help with their marketing and was later invited to become their Director of Marketing.
