Very good amazing facilitation of the group. This led to lots of honest sharing of opinions and experiences. Paula brought a lot of engaging activities and kept it relevant to everyday life. An amazing 2 days, thank you.
Yes it was a an intense 2 days but I feel we came together well as a team, the diversity I thought was great and I really enjoyed meeting and working with you all. Paula was a great enabler.
Professional, well designed course that has expanded my knowledge. Paula is an excellent instructor who kept the pace and tone of the course in perfect harmony.
Excellent and Informative course, very well presented, thank you.
Paula's personality and expedition background have equipped her with the key ingredients to not only get the job done, but to do it in a way that leaves a person touched by something intangible. An incredibly inspirational and lovely person to work with.
Best course I have been on, fantastic delivery from Paula and Gail. Not only do I feel like I’ve learnt a lot to help others also for myself, so thank you…
