Celebrating 30 years in business this year!

It’s official, Verner Wheelock is 30 this year! We’ve come a long way since 1990 when our Chairman, Verner, took early retirement from his post as Head of the Food Policy Research Unit at the University of Bradford and we ran our first ever training course.

Last year we delivered 140 in-house courses, 70 open courses in Skipton and carried out 212 ethical audits. We have 20 different courses and regularly review them to ensure the content is current. This year, we’ve diversified into remotely delivered courses and launched our own Basic Food Safety & Hygiene online course.

Of course, we wouldn’t be able to do this without our lovely customers and excellent trainers.

In different circumstances we would have had a big 30th anniversary party to celebrate. Instead we’re going to mark the occasion with an online lecture.

Ivor Cummins

We very much hope that you’ll be able to join us on THURSDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER at 9.30 am to spend a couple of hours with the Verner Wheelock team and our special guest, Ivor Cummins, who will be presenting a two-part webinar with a question and answer session.

Who is Ivor Cummings?

The Chief Program Officer for Irish Heart Disease Awareness, Ivor is an extremely engaging presenter, who really makes us think about the food we eat and how it impacts our health and well-being. For the past 8 years, he has been intensely researching the root causes of modern chronic diseases, with a focus on cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. He has shared his research insights at public speaking engagements around the world.

In recent months, Ivor has devoted his attention to COVID-19. Using his approach of going back to the basic science and interacting with first class scientists, he has developed a very sound understanding of the risks involved and how they can be controlled.

30th Anniversary Webinar

In the first section of the webinar, he will share the knowledge that he has collected on COVID-19 based on the experience of many different countries. He will explain the risks and the steps that individuals can take to reduce them through nutrition.  Finally, he will discuss some of the policy options that could be adopted by the authorities.

In the second section, Ivor will explain why a diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats is a critical aspect of a healthy lifestyle.

We hope that you find these talks both interesting and thought-provoking.

More about Ivor

In addition to his speaking activities Ivor is joint author of Eat Rich, Live Long: Use the Power of Low-Carb and Keto for Weight Loss and Good Health and is a prolific blogger on the benefits of a low carb lifestyle.

His website The Fat Emperor is an amazing source of valuable information, which includes detailed discussion with leading scientists in the field.
