Feedback

Donna,

thank you for todays training. I found it really interesting and useful. It is such a scary subject with it all being so easily accessible. the day was also good as you inform us in such a relaxed and informal way. I have done so many training days when its death by powerpoint and VERY dry....today was really fun and I have gained a lot of confidence and information from the session.

Have a lovely weekend.
