Testimonials

Overall, a really good course. Enjoyed every minute of it! Blair did a fantastic job at keeping the audience engaged and making sure the content was interesting and relatable. Anon.

As with most courses, the content is usually great, but it's the real life stories and anecdotes, that take a good course and make it great. Blair has stories and anecdotes by the bucketful, they really do help put a real life spin on the processes, procedures and legalese of the termination process. Anne, People and Commercial Manager
