dean oliver - project Coordinator

Hi, my name is Dean, I'm the Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator and part of the team in Stoke-on-Trent which delivers our amazing Cook and Eat Well programmes. Having worked in the Health and Wellbeing industry for many years I've developed a great appreciation for courses like ours, and have had the pleasure of seeing first-hand the positive changes eating well can have on all our lives. I love delivering our courses because they are so much fun and I hope that many more people will come along and join in.

My favourite dish has to be our Omelette Popovers, a great way to start a morning.
