  • "It was very good. I enjoyed the small groups, being able to just speak about the topic in a safe environment. It has given me greater confidence as a business owner to continue our compliance journey." Anonymous, October 2020.

  • "An enjoyable couple of days training. Perfectly balanced to give the right detail of information for each topic. The small tasks we had to complete throughout the training really helped digest each aspect of the course. The trainer was really engaging, absolutely knew the topic inside out and delivered the material really well. L.B of Education Scotland, October 2022.
