We were so "buzzed" today that I think that we will see some significant long term effect. Thanks Elizabeth you have outstanding communication and empathy skills.
Elizabeth's programme made so much sense because of its structure and simplicity. Elizabeth has been a great source of practical support and ideas, pushing and encouraging us when needed.
What can I say about the session other than WOW. Thanks again, you will now definitely be part of our group DNA.
You were a great facilitator and got the best out of us. Keep in touch.
Elizabeth, you are our highest scoring speaker we have had with an overall score of 9.8 out of 10! Hugely practical and best delivery of any speaker so far.
It was refreshing to not be bombarded with too many things but to apply a relatively simple tool so effectively and have great takeaway value.
