Feedback

A great engaging training event. Great content, interactive - using a range of tools such as polls and break out sessions. Lots of food for thought and tools we can take back to our work.
Great engaging event
Really good session and Larry kept the momentum going and engaged with us all using some great tools that we will no doubt use too now. A packed agenda but with lots of tips and suggestions that will be deliverable for us to leaders to share with our teams as well. I look forward to the next one!
Really good session
