1. In your own words – what do you do?
Team Doctor has a unique offering for the workplace. We offer health and wellbeing content which
is NHS endorsed, very well evaluated and designed to help people better understand workplace
health issues and give them the tools to manage those issues differently. Many of the most common
health issues which affect people at work come could be improved through education and very small
behaviour changes. Without that knowledge, people can’t make those small changes which make a
We address stress, anxiety, depression, bullying, sleep, eating, exercise and other environmental
factors, and address management approach and structures in the context of improving the health
and therefore the happiness of all staff.
We don’t use gimmicks. We don’t provide superficial lifestyle advice abundant on YouTube. All our
health content adheres to NICE guidelines and is clinically reviewed on a regular basis.
We improve health and wellbeing of staff, we improve managerial structures and as a result we
improve attitudes and productivity in the workplace.
Our content is easy to consume via our App.
2. What’s the most exciting thing about what you’re doing?
Making a difference to people’s lives. Through education we are helping people understand and
recognise issues that can affect well-being in the workplace. We then provide practical tips and
advice as to how both individuals and organisations can make positive changes.
3. What are you most proud of so far?
The quality of our are films is world class, with BBC production quality and content from leading
experts, they are engaging and informative.
4. What have you found most difficult about being a startup?
We have had to invest to produce a high quality product, now that phase one is complete and we
have it ready for market. Our biggest challenge is to effectively market it. Despite having a good
reputation with our original businesses, The Sound Doctor and Team-i. Launching a new brand and a
new product, takes a lot of time and effort. Initial sales take several conversations.
5. What would you do differently if you started now?
We are very pleased with the progress we have made at this stage and we think we are on the right
6. Where do you think you’ll be in 12 months?
It’s all about sales and marketing now! We have already had a lot of initial interest. We expect to
sign up some early adopters, who we hope will become advocates. We would hope by the end of
year one, that we will have generated enough cash to start phase two of our content generation
plan. This will include the creation of some very exciting online courses.
7. What tools/people/services/organisations helped you most?
We received a match-funded grant from the West of England Academic Health Science Network,
which allowed us to commission films and build our App. The Sound Doctor has fantastic contacts in
film production and Digital trading who created our App, have provided a great service.
We have also had excellent support from Business West.
8. What’s the best thing about being based in Swindon?
Swindon has a high number of big employers who are potential clients for our solution. Being able to
speak to these has been and will be very important. Swindon has some excellent business support
groups that we have been able to tap into: eg Business West and the Growth Hub.
9. What support does the tech scene need in Swindon?
From our perspective sales and marketing is the key area. There is a lot of creativity and expertise.
From a small business perspective breaking into the supply chain of the big local companies is
essential and support in doing this would really help.
