"Piers was brilliant. He set the tone of the course right from the start, and his relaxed and natural approach encouraged interaction immediately. The exercises were clear and informative, and the time we had to develop our ideas independently and then share with the class worked really well. It's the first time I've been in a Zoom breakout room, and they were a great addition to the course, encouraging conversation between smaller groups of delegates. This made it feel more like a face-to-face course which was really helpful. The breaks were well-staggered through the day, giving us time to break away and relax."
