I was hoping to get a better understanding of why my attention to detail isn't always great and how I can improve because I couldn't pin point it however the course helped me to understand why this is and tips on how I can pick up on my faults and amend them.

I thought the course was very good. I thought the small number of participants worked really well, as we got to know each other and share ideas without being self conscious. A lot was covered, and I took away some really useful tips.
