Clare Walker Consultancy delivers Freedom Programme facilitator training across the UK. And on occasion in partnership with Freedom Programme Charity. We asked delegates: What would you tell a friend or colleague about this training? This is what Birmingham had to say in February this year…
Impactful, clear, concise, group led, powerful, given me the confidence to deliver.
