“Gillian [Logie] was an excellent trainer and took the time to explain things in deep when someone didn't quite understand the material. She made the course very interesting with her in-depth knowledge and ability to relate to the different organisations from the group. The introductions of the quiz and group exercises meant the group really participated fully with all the activities.”
