    Meeting Management Training Course Reviews:

    Everyone really enjoyed the training course. Jessica (trainer) was great. This wasn't like your normal training, more relaxed and people participated more - would definitely book her again.

    Was a very interesting and well-presented course. Gave me good grounding for the topic and a range of things to think about.
