What our customers say

Biocair Logo black logotype
An amazing, worthwhile and informative learning opportunity. The programme strikes the right balance for managing cancer in the workplace - providing practical skills for managers, supporting individuals facing the worry and potential diagnosis of cancer, and the legal obligations an employer must be aware of.
Anna Triggs
HR Manager, Biocair
The course really helped me to develop a healthy lifestyle and the feeling of taking back control. It's exactly the type of course I wish anyone going through cancer treatment would benefit from.
cancer rehabilitation participant
I found this course incredibly useful to learn how to best support an employee with a cancer diagnosis, both compassionately and also lawfully. The overall content and structure of the course was brilliant. Overall, I had a great experience and would highly recommend this to other employers and managers.
Caroline Towers
HR Professional, PragmatIC
The Boutros Bear Programme has helped me to instil some very good habits into my every day. I have more energy, flexibility and, more importantly, Boutros Bear supported me through my chemotherapy and joined a supportive community.​
