    Hi Kim.
    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making the MWE course a pleasure to attend.
    The two days of training, especially coaching Julie and Tom, were so relaxed the learning happened almost without thinking. I was extremely nervous on assessment day but used a bit of NLP positive mantra that ‘they want to learn’ and ‘I am EXCITED to be in a position to pass on some tips’ coupled with the encouraging atmosphere helped me to relax and drive home to Plymouth a very happy bunny.
    Thanks again and I hope to paddle with you soon.
    Best wishes. Martin
