    • Hi Paula I never got round to saying thank you for all your help and commitment with our cohort. Although time demanding on occasions I enjoyed doing the certificate and was very pleased with my result. I feel it has helped me step back and look at my job and the role I play within the school, a very useful exercise after some 12 years in school administration. Regards Liz Wood

    • If you could have offered me the behaviour changes that we have seen across the organisation as a result of Richard's work (both training and mentoring) 20 months ago, I would have found it hard to believe......If you asked me would I do this again, the answer is definitely YES."
