“I came back from your Principles of Graphic Facilitation workshop energized and with a pack full of skills (and resources) and a wonderful support group. I wanted to tell you that it has been among the best workshops I have ever attended: great design, great trainer/facilitator, great materials, and very practical. In fact, I am putting my new skills into practice right now."
