    Really engaging course

    I would like to take the opportunity to thank you, Gill for all of the training / support you gave. Nothing was too much trouble, and your training style led to a really engaging course.

    It was always going to be a challenge, trying to deliver a 4 day course across Teams, however, you didn’t let this phase you, and your commitment to make it interactive was just the right level. I particularly loved the use of the white board, and your drawings – and although we joked about them, they did really help, and bring the theory to life. Thank you so much for our interaction over the last 4 weeks, and will hopefully have the opportunity to work with you again.
