Due to the demand we will be running this course for the 18th time since lockdown number 1 last year and we have received some excellent feedback:
“Zoom was used very effectively in this course due to the presentation approach and skills of host and co host; also the format – not too long, not too much information, plenty of time to discuss and answer questions, best zoom course so far!”
“Just a big thank you to you and Chris (for the entertainment value!) for providing such an interesting, useful and helpful course. Well worth attending”
“Thank you for the course, I have taken part in a lot of seminars and other online training over the last few months and I have to say I enjoyed yours the most. The material was specific to the topic and will be very useful in my day to day contacts with our members. Also it was nice to have relaxed chat all the way through and to have some fun. Other training I have done has not had this and it really makes a big difference. When we used to do training in person (remember that??) there was always chat over coffee and in breaks and it is an important part of the training”.
Thanks again to both of you, I look forward to doing more training with you.
“Just to thank you for putting on the course during these trying times. I feel that I have learned about things that I was not aware of and some ideas that I can put into my practice when working with energy clients and organisations that need this type of support”.
“I am thrilled that the course has saved me £400 on my energy bill, as it prompted me to switch suppliers! I am looking forward to sharing this with the project participants I support, in order to see if I can save them money too”
“Great course, lots of fun whilst still being informative – I will certainly encourage others to take part in any courses in the future!”
