Great outlook on Culture. I don’t feel as embarrassed or confused as I did.

Relaxed and fun, yet informative.

Enjoyed day immensely. Very entertaining, good use of examples relating to relevant topics and good pictures/notes on flip chart. Anne has great energy and very easy to understand and listen to. It changes viewpoint, gives communication skills to put in place for any difficult situations/conversations etc.

I found Communicating Across Language Barriers very hands-on and relevant.

Great group size meant all voices were heard.

Cascade tutors were very engaging and made the programme enjoyable.
