“I have really enjoyed working with you through this programme – you have real strengths as a trainer in your calm and composed presence, you clearly know your stuff, deliver it clearly and you tailor to the needs of the group.  You have a genuine warmth and demonstrated care for us and our learning. Sarah did a tremendous job in providing a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience, sensitively run and with plenty of fun to keep the energy levels up.”  Diploma Programme Participants
