“It was a great session with lots of real examples that brought alive the theory. The workshop was thought-provoking and really interesting with lots to take away and reflect on/action! The value for money was very good and the speakers were on point and helpful. I came away buzzing, questions answered and full of ideas. I highly recommend this workshop.”
