About Purple Balm Training

We are Purple Balm Training

Through our work within the care sector Purple Balm has gained a reputation for providing quality staff who receive exceptional training in the mandatory skills of caring for people. We also work with other sectors understanding that the core aspects of our training are essential to them.

Recognising this, we have developed our own training facilities within our local offices and a training team that can assist you with all aspects of training from delivering mandatory subjects such as Health and Safety, Infection Control and Basic Food Hygiene to working with you to provide bespoke training from shop floor to management levels.

Our training team will work with you to provide the right solution for your business; this may be from one person attending a course at our facilities to providing a complete training intervention at your business.

For further booking information or to discuss your particular requirements please phone the training team on 01392 466777 or email info@purplebalmtraining.co.uk.

Suzie Meynell
Training Manager
An experienced Trainer having worked in the Recruitment and Training of staff in a wide range of business settings. I am responsible for the development and delivery of most of our training courses here at Purple Balm Training.

I have lived in Devon all of my life, I love the diverse people who live here and all the amazing and dynamic businesses we are so fortunate to have here.

I have worked within the private and public sector and have always strived to encourage others I have worked with to recognise their full potential and welcome the career opportunities along the way.

In addition to being committed to providing the very highest standard of Training to external partners I also strive to provide quality training and support to our team of office staff. I enjoy building the relationship with both the company as well as the individual receiving the training.

I am passionate about lifelong learning and truly believe that with the correct training and support to your staff you will create a loyal confident team. They will have the knowledge to sell your business and will want to stay with your company. I will encourage, motivate and inspire your team to want to be the best.

In my spare time I enjoy Foreign Travel, Walking, Keeping Fit, Reading, Music and learning to play the Guitar.
