Course Feedback

Some feedback from previous courses: “Brilliant course with facilitators with a wealth of knowledge and experience.” “Fantastic course, informative, thought-provoking, makes you think outside the box. Content handled/delivered professionally and sensitively.” “A very hard subject to train however the two trainers were great in delivering the course and the pace was excellent. Keep up the good work.”  “Mixture of facilitation techniques kept me engaged. Lots of tools for us to utilise in our work rather than just increasing knowledge.” “Very good day, did not feel like training, was very relaxed and enjoyed it, thank you.”
