Feedback from 2020 Expo

Excellent Expo! Well organised, astute presenters and a lot of networking time.


Terrific. Each presenter was fully engaged, articulate and the sessions were filled with ideas that I can use with the children I have contact with. Thank you for putting the day together. Meeting other participants, all of the sessions were worth watching and participating in. Great, Great Great.


Thank you for organising such an interesting, inspiring and thought-provoking training. I loved every session. I have attended so many workshops over the years and I can honestly say this is one of the best.


The Expo was incredibly well thought out and planned - it provided an absolute gift in each presentation and activity and was deeply inspiring to refocus, recreate and reconnect - all the things it said it was aiming to do. so very congruent and I would pass on and share/recommend it with others in a heart beat.


This one of the best course/on-line experiences I think I’ve had. Thought this was just brilliant!
