What are workshops?

  • Our workshops are small classes (generally between 10-20 attendees) where the trainer is able to give more focused and detailed training on specific issues.

  • As the classes are small, there is much more scope for discussion and interaction, both within the group and with the trainer. People generally find them very rewarding.
