Thanks Melody - brilliant day! The course exceeded my needs and has coaxed me well and truly out of my comfort zone. Today has been full of energy, interraction and thought provoking discussions. My confidence in what I do is most certainly higher tonight than it was this morning." Sarah Veness, Ceramisis Ltd
