5/5 — thoroughly enjoyable course! The trainer was very approachable and engaging, I was shown new perspectives I hadn’t considered about the sponsor’s mindset.

The course was great. Really enjoyed the exercises, they helped me fully understand what I was learning. The trainer kept everyone under control and concentrating for the whole day, it didn’t drag at all!

Overall I found the two days very valuable and enjoyable. Great to get validation and tips on so many aspects of managing events. Ros was extremely knowledgeable. I liked her approach which is direct, straightforward and honest.
