About Patrik Somers

The course has been so great and your delivery style, and knowledge really made it a great course to be part of. I’ve picked up so much information and knowledge from you this week that I know I will be able to put into action both personally and within our organisation – thank you. Your calm and considered approach and the time that you gave us to ensure understanding and ask any questions was really useful. I really can’t think of anything to improve the course, it was a fantastic week.
