“The training day was carefully structured to allow skills to develop through warm-ups, simpler to more complex tasks and group review sessions. The trainer was engaging and inclusive and knew exactly how to get the team out of its comfort zone to work harder, faster and with improved results. A good time was had by all and the team left having made fresh discoveries about colleagues and knowledge about themselves”
