“I have learnt so much from this course, it has been so inspiring learning and developing with others from different hospices and sharing experiences with them. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to develop their leaderships skills to attend this course. You are given so many different techniques and ways of working that there is always something that suits your style.”
