‘Thank you again for three inspiring days with good company and lots of learning. In my daily work I have found, that my point of attention has changed, and at team meetings we now talk about our students achievements. It`s not easy and some of my teachers can get a bit offended by it, but nevertheless I keep going that direction, developing a language that makes it meaningful to talk about and work towards.’

“Thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration amongst professionals….learned a lot from instructor and colleagues.’
