"I thoroughly enjoyed your teach the teachers course. It was one of the most engaging courses I've been to. Today I gave a presentation to some junior doctors and I'm sure you'd be happy to know that I used INTRO, pattern interrupt, videos and a whole range of techniques that I got directly from your course! So for that I would like to say thank you."

Saleem,ST5, Orthopaedics

"One of the best courses I have attended! It has provided me with skills I can use not just within my medical career. The format of the course was excellent - I was engaged throughout, really enjoyed the different exercises, a lot of which emphasised the topics we were learning about and it didn't feel rushed or too drawn out. Both Rachel and Sarah were fantastic trainers and I can't speak more highly of them. They were warm and very welcoming and put so much enthusiasm and passion into both days. I learnt so much from them and will definitely be applying what I have learnt to my future teaching sessions."

Abi, Clinical Fellow, ICU

"I really enjoyed the structured teaching, practical tips and examples. I have learnt so much and can easily apply it to make presentations outstanding from now on. I thought Rachel and Mark were very skilled and helpful facilitators with great energy and a fountain of knowledge!"
