I found the course to be thoroughly enjoyable and educational...I loved it and can't wait to put it into action. I do just wish it was longer: I enjoyed it enough to want stay and learn more for a few extra days.

I enjoyed the course and found it very useful and I aim to use it in both a professional and personal level. Thanks again Tammy was very good with her delivery and did an excellent job of keeping the group on track whilst at the same time giving everyone a fair time to ask questions. Thank you Tammy I would say the only thing negative is that everyone in the business may not get to do the course as it is invaluable, especially at this time of change.
