    “Hi Kate and Chris,
    I had to email to thank you so much for the most amazing course yesterday. It could also have been marketed as a mental health day as I left feeling inspired, motivated and most importantly resourced to enhance the lives of our children.
    I feel very privileged to be part of your courses and know that this will have a huge impact on our school.
    Please continue with courses like this and I look forward to part two of ‘Getting it Right’.”
