  • High quality presentations; high quality Q&A sessions accessing the knowledge and opinions of the audience

  • Up to date research findings. Excellent breadth of topics. Extremely interesting and thought provoking two days

  • Final session a great idea to consolidate learning – never seen this at a conference before

  • The facilitators have passion in what they do

  • As a result of learning undertaken today, I am more likely to consider how I manage spiritual care assessments

  • I found the structure of the course relevant and appropriate. Well thought out. Difficult to find fault with.

  • Both the facilitators were exceptionally good and the techniques they adopted were interesting.

  • I didn't know that there are so many aspects of communication and various techniques for effective communication. The Enhanced Communication Skills Training course was a good experience.

  • As a whole the Enhanced Communication Skills Training course surpassed my expectations. There was a balanced mix of participation, PowerPoint and rehearsals.
