We have worked with Silver Lining, Danny Simmonds, to develop a series of stress management workshops to support our UK psychological health support programme. From initial discussions and ideas, Danny has worked in close consultation with us to develop and deliver Health & Resilience Programmes, to be utilized by both teams and individuals, throughout BP.

As part of individuals' development, the focus has been on raising awareness of pressure and 'stress', plus a wealth of practical stress management techniques and guidance for building resilience. These programmes have been a valuable and successful element of our UK strategy. Segments at BP have included: Corporate & Functions, Exploration and Production, Refining and Marketing, teams from Group Compliance & Ethics, Finance, IST – UK Supply, HR and Occupational Health.

Silver Lining delivers professional, informative, current, intuitive, active learning programmes. The facilitators inject a presence of positive energy, allowing delegates to feel comfortable to participate in a secure environment. From the excellent feedback received on the Health & Resilience programmes, we also worked with Silver Lining to facilitate elements of our own team development - in the areas of Time Management and Train the Trainer.

Their team demonstrate a wide range of knowledge, flexibility and adaptability, to ensure smooth and effective delivery to the different target audiences.

We have worked closely with Silver Lining for over 6 years and would be delighted to recommend them to any organisation.

Since 2008 we have been working with Silver Lining to develop and deliver a global approach to managing pressure effectively across the AIME business within the Lubricants SPU.

In this time Danny and her team have been a delight to work with, both professional and flexible in supporting the needs of the business. We have worked together to develop: a programme for teams – 'The Resilience Toolobx', a programme for managers and team leaders – 'Resilience For Leaders' and designed a train the trainer programme to develop internal Resilience Trainers.

The needs of a global business necessitate a consistent approach which is also adaptable to local country needs and cultures. These needs have been catered for by the engaging and collaborative approach Silver Lining naturally adopts in involving people from across the business and sense checking the materials, and facilitation styles.

Feedback on the Resilience Programmes has been excellent; both from those who have attended the team leader training, and those who have become Resilience Trainers. The business has also now started to roll the programme out globally, to approximately 1500 employees across the UK, Europe, Americas and ASPAC. The programmes were also adopted by the Automotives business unit in 2009.

As we continue to roll out this programme to our senior leaders and across our employee base in 2009/2010, I am confident that the business will meet its aim of supporting leaders and teams to become more effective in managing themselves during these challenging times.

I look forward to continuing to build on this success for our business. Megan Parfitt, AIME HSSE Manager
