Workshop was inspiring!
Best workshop I’ve been to so far. Great preparation. Very interesting discussions.
The Inception workshop, an intensive week with the full team in one room, allowed us to make impressive progress across the initiative. It’s great to come out of a week like that with a clear path forwards of how to progres.
I can honestly say that the facilitator has great speech skills. He's been involved in many Microsoft and third party local industry events, and he always got great rankings. I highly recommend him as a professional speaker and IT consultant.
The workshop content was very good, and was flexible enough to be adapted to our requirements.
Both facilitators were knowledgeable. The training was incredibly engaging and allowed anyone to feel they were progressing.
I thoroughly enjoined the entire fortnight.
Learned more in two weeks than I could have in an entire semester at college.
Both trainers were world-class instructors; it was a pleasure to meet them and grow with them for the past two weeks.
