Individual-Speakers-Quote

I laughed a lot and, at times, I cried……as some of the points that were raised certainly hit more than one raw nerve! This workshop has taught me how to start looking at things in a different way and I am hopeful that I will be able to incorporate some of the techniques learnt into my daily routine. A truly thought-provoking and uplifting experience!

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Adrian delivered a highly engaging talk which gave our staff an understanding of the reasons why students can suffer from anxiety as well as  plenty of practical ideas we can now use straight away with our students. Importantly, all of this discussion was well grounded in scientific research which Adrian made accessible to all.
