Thank you for another excellent (and fun) course! The skills you cover, and your ability to relate theory to real life experience, helped me to apply my learning from day 1.

Sam’s combination of theory with practical activities really helped the learning to stick, as well as providing the opportunity to work on my project. The combination makes this time well spent when our diaries are all so busy. The visual tools, workbooks and templates are also invaluable and are now a permanent feature on my desk!
