What you might expect from this programme
“I have a clearer idea of what I’m doing right, but better still a clear idea of what I could do better.”
“This might be the only evaluation I’ve ever completed that received top marks.”
“A good mix of methods, exercises, resources. Right pace and I liked the informality. Relevant and focused.”
“A useful day which was presented in a relaxed and friendly way. Mark clearly has great knowledge and experience of trusts and foundations.”
“Anecdotes helped with the understanding of the material. Laid-back presentation style encouraged individuals to participate. Group activities built working relationships.”
“Today has given me real food for thought and a different perspective on the potential for different types of income generation.”
