"Everything was useful, particularly ways in which we can practice with the knowledge gained on the training.  Fantastic, engaging, inspiring.  Without doubt one of the most informative courses I have been on!  Great facilitator!  Great not to have PowerPoint presentation.  I would do a week on this training."
