The course was very well presented and engagement with participants was great. It was even better to hear others experience during the course in such short time.


Course material was relevant, tangible for day-to-day implementation. Interesting facts and statistics presented. Good work-shopping exercises and interaction.


I thoroughly enjoy having Alison as an instructor. It far exceed my expectation
