Thank you both for a fabulous six hours of workshop. We were saying what a great team of teaching and coaching you are together, just the perfect complementary approaches, how well you organized the content/flow of the two days and of what high quality your workshop is. We enjoyed it very much and know so much more about what we can create and how. We’ll be back for some colour some time!
