The trainer had tailored the focus to best suit the needs of the audience and continually analysed the delegate comments / questions adding in extra content to make the training as effective as it could be. From this there quickly developed a strong rapport between trainer and delegates which created a very engaging atmosphere (no easy feat considering the training was remote!) and willing participation in the interactive elements. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a huge amount.

Interactive, but not too much. Easy to follow and good despite being remotely accessed.
