Feedback from the last event:

  • “Amazing and useful information. I wish our whole staff could attend!!”
  • “Ken was excellent in presenting the information in a very natural, straight- forward way. He was always available to answer questions- offer suggestions and re-explain a concept.”
  • “The biggest thing I learned was dealing with behaviours. I was struggling with this as a SEA and now I definitely have some very valuable tools that I can use.”
