The instructor was very informed and pleasant to listen to. The online platform is not an easy one and she came across very well. She is engaging, warm, down-to-earth and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed it. It was the best workshop I’ve attended in some time. I learned a great deal, was reminded of that which I have learned previously and enjoyed brainstorming with colleagues regarding our approach.
