I attended Kate Russell's Disciplinary Workshops held in-house. It was fantastic. It completely opened my mind up to how to ask "open" questions and the whole disciplinary process, at the same time re-iterating my knowledge. Most course / workshops tend to be quite tedious, however with Kate's unique delivery, there was no way you would get bored. Kate was an absolute gem of a trainer and I would indeed look forward to attending any future workshops / courses.
