“Victoria is an informative, dynamic presenter with a wealth of knowledge. Her sessions were highly interactive & she was more than happy to spend a little extra time on content you were unsure about. Overall, the course itself was second to none, the investment was well worth every penny & in relation to my work performance, my confidence grew & I was able to see the “wood for the trees”, again. This course is a must for any first time managers who want to “build on” their leadership skillset.”
