“I have no hesitation in recommending the Equo online disability awareness training.
Even with my experience it highlighted certain areas that I need to address…”
David Heard, CEO, Sportability
Our team is small but perfectly formed (we would say that, wouldn’t we?). And we are immensely proud of the work we do and are always striving to improve and grow. We believe passionately in providing a high quality service to all our customers and doing that with courtesy, professionalism and just a touch of humour.
Oh, if you’re wondering how we pronounce Equo, it’s like this: Eckwo
And if you had a spare half hour I’d tell you how we came upon this name…
Equo is independently owned and based in Lowestoft, Suffolk.
The company was originally formed by a group of friends who all had something in common – they had all sustained a spinal injury.
The guys are still involved with the business as very active shareholders with the day-to-day running of the business resting with Wendy and Ian.
Ian looks after all things techy and is the lead on our E-learning products.
He has worked for the company for a number of years becoming a director in January 2010. He has a varied background having been a telecommunications engineer, website designer, carer and he serves his local community as a retained firefighter for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service.
In his spare time Ian has also been known to perform on stage in musicals, pantomimes and plays with his local theatre group, the Lowestoft Players.
Wendy heads up the Good Access Guide team, focussing on our advertising partners and growing this exciting part of the business
Wendy joined the company in 2008, becoming a director in 2010. She has spent much of her career in the travel industry working in High Street travel agencies and a number of years with another great local company, Hoseasons.
Performing on stage and being an accomplished choreographer keeps her busy in what spare time she has. Wendy has ambitions to be a published author of children’s books – watch out JK Rowling!
Sarah is usually the first point of contact for our existing Good Access Guide advertisers but also has another very important role…
Ian can be quite disorganised at times and Sarah’s organisational skills come to the rescue regularly!
Sarah is now taking on more responsibilities and looking after our training clients too…
Two young daughters keep Sarah busy at home but she also likes to keep fit at the gym and by pounding the pavements – running that is…
We’re a friendly bunch and are more than happy to chat about how we can help you…
