"The four-day training course has been really interesting. I have been on training courses before and have dreaded them, and I leave with what was the point! Thinking it had no relevance to me at all. This course with you has been really helpful to me. You have a great personality, are approachable, and friendly which helped me to feel more engaged and happy to interact and learn. So I just want to say thank you again have learned a lot."
