    The course SURPASSED my expectations.  Our instructor, Roxanne, was great.  We were a small class (5) which allowed for A LOT of discussion time. Roxanne is a warm, friendly and outgoing facilitator.  Very knowledgeable and dynamic. The only part I wasn't completely satisfied with, was the location.  For those of us from out of town, there are no nearby accommodations; therefore, making travelling to/from, very difficult.

    Roxanne was a great facilitator. Very knowledgeable and helpful.  See earlier comments (excellent facilitator) One tweak to the course that might work would be to take the case study and fill it out throughout the course. Ie: after the section on Think - take the case study and do all the thinking pieces. After the link piece is complete, take the case study and do all the link activities etc...

    Good pace, nice introduction to strategic thinking. I would be very interested in taking other courses with Candida as the faciliator I would have appreciated having croissants/bagels in the morning along with the fruit provided. Cake in the afternoon was a very enjoyable treat.
