"This theory-based course worked well online, with a great presentation, relevant examples and exercises that we could do remotely. Rich was really knowledgeable, shared a lot of skills/tools that I will be able to use in the future and was happy to answer any questions. It was also useful to be shown specific exercises that I can do after the course, to build on what I learnt."
