“Thoroughly enjoyed every session of the course. The delivery and knowledge of Kevin was excellent and he got the best from all the attendees. Have encouraged colleagues to attend the course as it is very beneficial. Sessions were well structured and it was easy to see how we were meeting the objectives of each session – which doesn’t always happen on other courses.”
