"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for facilitating our dry run yesterday and I hope you got your car out with-out too much hassle and delay! It was great to finally meet you and the work you had already done provided a solid brief to the exercise. As with any theory it was right to put it into practice and I think we took away some tips that will improve further the smooth running and key outcomes for the sessions"
