Course 1902 

The trainer was just brilliant (24)

I loved it – lots of ideas and things that can be done practically.  A very useful course.  I will definitely take things away to use personally. (23)

A lovely woman giving a lovely message – I loved the positive attitude displayed and promoted by Ann! (21)

Very inspiring. A very good presentation.  Im now aware of how our thoughts can condition us.  ..  and it is important to break the cycle. (20)

Delivery was brilliant. Ann’s energy in itself is inspiring.  (19)

Very engaging trainer and (course) very worthwhile.  Very good analogies.  Very easy to relate to.  Useful handouts.  Very useful and informative. (16)
