The trainer was outstanding. He combined real life cases with the topics and brought great enthusiasm to the group.


The trainer was inspirational for all of us and encouraged many of us to continue our own development and 'put ourselves out there' which was so refreshing and inspiring. I now feel like I can have an impact in my department and organisation and that I can create positive change.


Very structured and valuable course, trainer’s delivery of material was excellent. The trainer used a very good balance of narration, coaching and giving the groups opportunity to think over, ask questions and discuss within groups.
