Angie Strachan has written a letter….
“This poem,” Angie says, “is written as an alternative resignation letter, (although I would not recommend that it is used as a template!) It is about how the work/employee relationship can break down and how creating a mentally healthy culture can be beneficial to the work environment and employee wellbeing.”
You can contact Angie to engage your people with her amazing performance poetry, delivered with humour and sensitivity, at events and conferences. She packs a punch with her words full of wit and wisdom.
Thanks for sharing this Angie!
