I would not just recommend it – I would insist upon it! This has been by far one of the most worthwhile initiatives I have taken part in during my continuing professional development. The program is superbly constructed, supremely relevant and highly effective.
Another great reason for participating is the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. The whole experience has been extremely rewarding on every level.
