Templates have real use to me – just need to schedule time to complete them and not allow slippage! Will help me to talk to my manager about my workload and priorities.

Very practical, enthusiastically presented. It was clear that the trainer used the strategies herself. I believe that I will work better as a result of this course.

I had no idea what my ‘frogs’ were and actually by facing my ‘filing/organisation of paper’ frog I will be much more efficient.
