Jane Carne

"Rosie and Jan were able to impart their extensive experience really well.

They are accomplished trainers, and lovely presenters, and used the Zoom medium really well, including sharing helpful materials and using breakouts.

I came away feeling a lot more confident about my coaching abilities and thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
