Testimonial of the reference person

Anne did an excellent job preparing the methodology and working together to adapt the program as necessary, based on participants' needs and feedback. She has many fun, engaging activities up her sleeve ready to use as ice-breakers, team-building exercises, etc. and is a great trainer and facilitator.
