“Sarah has an energetic, enthusiastic approach to teaching/training and maintains your interest with humour, anecdotal quotes and an  excellent knowledge base. Sarah engaged with everyone in the room and encouraged us all to ask questions and share our own experiences with ease within the group.

The training was informative, relevant and interesting and Sarah maintained our focus until she was sure that we could complete the MCQ at the end of the day with the knowledge and confidence to pass the Personal Licence Training.”
