Workshop Attendee comments:

“It helps that the speaker really buys into the topic and can present it in a variety of perspectives.”
“Thorough coverage of topic; presentations were full of energy; I was stretched out of my comfort zone but that is good because it helps me understand the expectations I have of my families; great training series – well done!”
“Beneficial training and definitely useful and will be used; Mary is very passionate and great at doing this training.”
