What is 5asideCHESS?
Now touring the country to battle increasing suicide rates, they use chess as a tool to get people back into the ‘Art of Conversation’.
After a quick tour around the bus to make sure it was safe to proceed, the driving duo headed out around Southampton for some essential training.
“Our Applied Driving family is proud to support a cause that is close to our hearts. ADT understands the importance of raising mental health awareness and fully supports our own teammates’ journeys as well as the wider community.
“We are thankful for the opportunity to aid the 5asideCHESS Battling Suicide Tour ’19 by providing what we’re best at: making the roads safer.
“We wish Ryan and the team all the best on their tour and hope they feel confident armed with the knowledge and skills to navigate the roads safely.”
Andy Phillips, Global Managing Partner – Applied Driving Techniques
“Mark was an excellent trainer. He was very easy to talk to and get feedback from throughout the day.
“I wanted to do the training because I’m about to embark on a 12 month Battling Suicide Tour of the UK. And also because the bus is a bit of a beast! The day with Applied Driving has definitely made me more aware of a few areas I could improve but, more than that, I learned some new techniques that will mean the bus is in safer hands.”
