how stotan group helped Victoria Police

Based on interviews with several VICPOL officers and support staff, Stotan designed, developed and delivered two 2hr workshops to approximately 50 front line Police Officers.
“Amazing, really amazing. The feedback from [Stotan’s] presentation yesterday has been overwhelmingly positive. Unprecedentedly positive feedback! I have been stopped by half a dozen individuals I don’t know personally from CIRT this morning thanking me for organising it, the SOG have been just as positive as well. You’re a legend, [Stotan] definitely leaves everyone they meet better for meeting you. It really reinforced the power of storytelling for me yesterday – no-one will forget the stories you told.”
