Feedback from our amazing clients

  • Such a valuable and insightful three days. I feel like it has already made a massive difference to my approach and built a really strong connection between me and the other attendees. It felt like something we really needed to do. You and Marcus have such a great, supportive and inspiring approach which really helped me to battle some demons and consider my development.

    - Mark Roberts - Sheffield University

  • I felt so reassured by the warm and open space that we created and that you and Marcus facilitated this week… I remembered my learnings and felt empowered to helicopter away from the detail.

    Thanks so much for facilitating a great few days. I had arrived with an open mind but had never imagined that I’d take so much away.
