Sorry not to have said anything other than ‘Excellent’ but it was the best training day I have ever done – primarily due to the genuinely practical nature of the content.

We had a really good day and it seemed to get everyone engaged. I particularly liked how we can apply mind-mapping to our work straight away. In fact, Lesley has spent the last 2 days doing mind-map to help with planning her projects already!
