Thanks Aidan, I thought the sessions were indeed informative and useful. Your delivery of the content and the participation of everyone on the course made it enjoyable.

Personalised Managing and Motivating Remote teams session attendee

Thought provoking and enjoyable

It was a superb session; I had wondered what we could have been talking over and considering for a day-long session, but it was the right duration, and more importantly you put people at their ease, so I think we had a good opportunity to air views and pick up the challenges. Thought-provoking and enjoyable, thank you.

I will also be taking some of these learnings and sharing with my team both male and female

Just a big thank you for an informative and engaging two days shared with some super talented ladies! I had no preconceptions of this workshop having been signed onto this relatively late in the day but gained so much. I will also be taking some of these learnings and sharing with my team both male and female. Look forward to catching up with you all again in September. Until then happy empowerment!

Empowering Women programme attendee

Super session

(…) super session. I put the ‘saying no’ positively, into practice in a tricky discussion yesterday, a good reminder!
Look forward to the follow up in Sept.
