Very engaging and accessible. Good mix of activities.
Thank you for bringing clarity to what can seem frightful.
Really insightful information, enjoyed the tasks … because it got me thinking about what we learned in a practical sense.
Found the real-life cases very interesting.
It was lovely to work with colleagues in a fun and collaborative but also low-stakes situation.
I liked that it was straight to the point with the correct amount of information.
