Organisational Training

 ‘I really enjoyed the training. It was informative and matched what I needed to know about fundraising. It was in context of the work that I do and also the trainers were knowledgeable, friendly and delivered the session effectively.
It has also given me food for thought about where I may need to develop further.’
