  • How to explore a complaint
  • Documentation

  • How to encourage people to make complaints

The workshops are facilitated by Kristie Walker, Director of On Track Investigations. Kristie has spent ten years in the public sector managing complaints, running investigations and leading teams across a diverse portfolio mix including health, ageing, energy and water, disability and transport. Kristie is a passionate complaint tragic who believes firmly in the transformative power of effective conversations and robust procedure.
