The strategies the facilitator discussed were extremely helpful and insightful. Connecting these strategies to brain functioning was very engaging and well presented.


The course was very tailored to our questions rather than a more structured format. The presenter was very knowledgeable and able to provide relevant examples to suit the audience.


Great workshop, very interesting and informative; the workbook will be very helpful and I will keep handy for time to come! I have enjoyed the day!


Great trainer, very knowledgeable and answers all questions very well; Good activities and content covered well; Great tips and ideas provided.


I enjoyed the explanation of STAR; this has given me a better understanding as to what is more important.


I came away feeling fully armed and equipped to tackle any job application which may take my fancy, and felt your presentation style was warm, friendly and very engaging..
