    Matt,

  • Mandy was fantastic,  there would have been a huge value from out of hours sessions to get more information from a 1 to 1 or even just smaller groups.  Understand this is hard because of numbers,  but might be easier if the course is a full 5 days.  But very useful,  also I think there is room to look at how we may have been told to pitch in our current roles and how we can adapt that in the structure you are promoting at Pareto.
