Excellent session

These skills could save lives

KT, GM Police Hostage and Kidnap Negotiator

"I come from a hostage negotiation background and having worked with Alan in multiple instances I can confidently say that the principles he's teaching for professionals are principles I applied when lives were at stake."

Practical and easy to follow

Jennifer Butler

"Having completed two of the courses on improving Word skills, I can highly recommend them. The sessions are informative, practical and easy to follow … and if you do miss something (they move along at a pace!), you can refer to their very helpful and well set out handouts."

Highly relevant

Michael Astle

"The content covered was highly relevant to the legal context and the skills will be welcome, especially when I'm working on long and complex documents."

Impressive how easy it is!
