The facilitation of the session was the best experience I have ever had at an online event.
Co-creating Projects Workshop Participant, Apr 2022
"It was the combination of intelligent thinking and planning around both delivery and content by a skilled facilitator who held the space well so that all participants were able to be themselves and to contribute."

"This was a truly nourishing, nurturing and useful experience."

"Helpful, informative, reflective and practical."
