The sessions were excellent, thought provoking, stimulating and practical.

I came to these sessions quite naive around how I could influence change in my workplace. I will be sharing what I have learnt amongst peers, hoping to influence others.

A superb programme.

I feel privileged to have listened to the speakers and no longer feel intimidated by politics.

The programme made politics reachable and tailor-made for nursing. 

One of the best courses I have ever been on in my career. Thank-you very much. 

I intend to be politically aware and to be more active in future

Informative, empowering and envisioning.
