“There were many different opportunities to learn in many different ways. It wasn’t just lecture, there were multiple teaching strategies. The presenter was aware when breaks were necessary. The flow was conducive to learning. I really liked the interaction of the presenter; he made it feel safe and comfortable.  He had great humor and showed actual concrete examples. Wonderful training!”.
