“Fun training, good trainers. Great experience made possible by great group dynamic. We were lucky with the way the group fitted together and the positive flow this created.”

“I found the atmosphere of the training quite relaxing but also very inspiring. I had the opportunity to meet and to listen very experienced colleagues coming from a very wide range of education institutions. I value the fact that each experience and insight of the participants was also relevant to the trainers. This was very inspiring and gave us confidence.”
