Veronica Howling is a freelance trainer, facilitator and consultant.  She has particular skills in encouraging and supporting the personal development of others, and in the last two years has been involved in the development of a Mentoring course accredited by the Open College Network, on which she was also the principal trainer.

Veronica has expertise in developing awareness training and policy development around issues concerning substance misuse, drawing on a strong background of ten years in this field, eight of these years working within a multi-disciplinary team.  Most of her recent working life has been spent within the voluntary sector, and as a result, Veronica has extensive knowledge of Volunteer Management, particularly in respect of recruitment, interviewing and training.

She enjoys the challenges and rewards of working with people and enabling them to discover their potential, whatever their age and abilities.  As a result of her work, she has developed a great interest in the effects of change on the individual, groups and organisations, and has studied Management of Change for one year at the University of Surrey.
