"Great course – really worthwhile and really rewarding. It is so rare to step out of the workplace for a whole week so to be able to do so is a real gift, but even better is to learn so much from such enthusiastic facilitators and participants. A+."

BLAIR CAIRNCROSS, Executive Director, New Zealand Gambling Commission

"I’ve had so many ah ha moments this week. I think this course will help me tremendously and I am looking forward to taking the knowledge and training I received and using it in my personal and work life. My only regret is that I didn’t register sooner."

TANYA CRIMP, Executive Assistant, Deputy Minister’s Office, Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs
