Feedback from recent delegates on this course:

Rebecca showed extraordinary patience and good humour.  She was an ideal trainer. (Robert Rhodes QC).

Rebecca’s course was first class. The tuition in the technology was excellent as was the guidance in relation to online presence. I thought there was a very good balance between the two, with ample opportunity to practice both through the role playing exercises.

Rebecca was very approachable and prepared to answer questions in detail.
