It is packed with lots of useful tips and information, the instructor is obviously very knowledgeable and an excellent communicator, and the overall quality of the course is suited to working professionals.

A very timely course which addresses the needs of people like myself, who have recently started working from home due to COVID-19, and are feeling a bit worn out and unsure of how I should be managing my time/workload.

I wanted initially to use the course to help me be more effective in managing my own team.... It certainly delivered everything I needed plus more!

He's inspiring. The anecdotes were applicable and the general course allowed a rethink of how we can choose to do life in a better way.
