“The second session was beneficial on effective communication (slightly shy and get anxiety when speaking in meetings so taught me how to calm down and reassess the situation) advised on techniques when conducting a meeting etc”
“The training courses have been excellent, thoroughly enjoyed them so far and definitely learned a great deal.”
