Well-structured, covering a broad range of topics. Some sensitive areas which could be potentially hard to discuss were handled well. Gave plenty of opportunity to interact and learn.
Instilling confidence to deliver. Highlighting key messages when delivering. Tips on how to manage difficult training situations.
The content was up-to-date and ready to deliver straight away. The exercises were thought provoking and pertinent to the messages that the course delivers. It was really good to be trained by someone with the knowledge that the trainer had.
