    I do not think the course should run with so few people.  There simply is not enough people to allow for a full engagement.  It did occur but in a two day session it took time for such a small group to get comfortable.  The slides and handouts need to match up better - seems like some of them are not current. I would only suggest a bit more space to allow people to assess the content that is being delivered and time to bring forward questions or thoughts.  At times it seemed a bit rushed to move into the next session.

      This course, and the instructor, were fantastic. The only criticism I have is for the venue. The location of the classroom was in a high traffic area, which caused too many distractions. It was sometimes difficult to hear or focus on discussions because of loud noises coming from the hallway or shadows in the frosted glass doors. the venue is otherwise good. The location is accessible, parking is affordable and food was good.

    Course content was invaluable.   Roxanne was a great presenter, kept us engaged and interested  the full 2 days!  She did a great job of shifting from theory to practical exercises.  I really appreciated her sharing her own professional career experiences (both positive and negative).  By disclosing her challenges in her professional career, we were left feeling  we too can overcome  setbacks - there is much to learn from failure and self reflection.  I will be using the skills I learned immediately and it will guide my  briefings to senior management.  Thank you Roxanne, thank you CMC for a great course!
