Great speaker

Melissa Pollard, Operations & Client Services Administrator , Falconbury Ltd

Friendly and keen to have exchanges with attendees. A good course, though with a little too much material.

Dougal Gemmell, Director, European Patent Office

Really enjoyed the course. Very informative and interesting.

Marissa Ashfield, Pharmacovigilance - AO, Veterinary Medicines Directorate

I thought the course was very good. I thought the small number of participants worked really well, as we got to know each other and share ideas without being self conscious. A lot was covered, and I took away some really useful tips.

Kitty Parsonson, ‎Learning and Development Assistant, University of Kent

I thought the course was detailed and engaging. Laura was a great speaker and delivered the course in a very inclusive and interactive manner.
