What did candidates from the last course say?

This has been a very helpful session, and has given me a lot of think about and implement.  You cut through a lot of the muddle, which was particularly helpful.

Thanks Alex for the session. I think one of the best things pointed out, was that there are platforms that allow you to manage multiple groups.  Also it’s given me great pointers for things to do better in the future”.
