loved the format! Super helpful when you can’t make the lives or only have a spare 15 mins so you can do sections of it and come back to it later without losing your place! Great to have downloadable resources and useful links as well.

Very happy for attending this and I will be glad to attend any future sessions run by charlotte.

I found it really easy and informative, thank you
