Our last workshop Session received many glowing reviews from past participants. These workshops scored an overall rating of 4.43/5 stars!:

I appreciated that the workshops gave us tangible methods we could take back into our workplace.

The “ah-ha” moment of recognizing my workload and needing restructure the importance of my daily tasks to be more effective in my work and serve my clients, my staff, and myself better.

Great job overall! Patience was a really good fit as facilitator for this training and I think it’s incredible that BCAAFC is able to pay for this training opportunity.
