The way she delivered the training on Wednesday and explained complex things in a simple and easy to understand manner was world class. She is an absolute inspiration and her passion for the industry has inspired me to learn more and immerse myself in this sector. Thank you so much for the course as well, I learnt lots and never felt I was too tired to absorb more information!”
