    "Very well executed. Clare delivered very useful content throughout - a reminder of all things to be considered. Not a wasted minute! For online training and delivery, this was really well done! Multi-faceted range of activities, well delivered, allowed all contributors to have time, responded to all points raised, clear and detailed content, great time management. I would be happy to attend more training delivered like this, by Clare."
