“You knocked it out of the park yesterday. Verbal feedback was through the roof. I always appreciate that you are a practitioner, which means you bring not only the methodology but also the experience to adapt to the context, which makes the training relevant/ relatable for the participants. Thank you! Always impressive to see you in action.”
