Recent comment from a workshop delegate:
''Just a short note to give you feedback on how enjoyable I found the course last week…seldom have I attended a training course where the trainer is so approachable. The tutors knowledge was first class and the way he put it over was superb. The format was just right too. I could tell a lot of thought had gone into it. I would guess that the longest we ever sat in front of the screen was 30 minutes. You mixed it up well – slides, exercises, games – which made the learning fresh and interesting.''
