Feedback about this training:
I think Jonathan was an excellent speaker and presenter. Though it was a 2 day course, he kept an engaging and consistent pace that didn't feel like it was drawn out to the point where it would get harder to concentrate while sitting in one spot for hours, which is why I appreciated the short breaks throughout the course and participating in activities that required us to stand up.
