Here's some of the feedback from the first session: 

"It was brilliant, very informative and lots of time for questions and I personally felt comfortable to ask 'stupid questions' if you see what I mean.  The price point made it easier to sign up for without being concerned about the budget and the length was perfect too. I look forward to similar short courses.  Thank you"

"It was perfect - timing, content & delivery"

"For me as a new Clerk it was both informative and reassuring so I don't know how you could improve it."

"Thank you for the training session today - it was so informative, brilliant and funny!"

"Just wanted to say thank you - I did know it all but never hurts to be reminded but that session was short, sweet but so informative and thank you"

"Great lunch time session really helpful and good as a reconfirmation.  I think these sessions will be invaluable in the future for focussed topics"
