    Sheila is experienced in the field and her experience came through as we went through the material. She used different methods to engage adult learners. I thought the course material, group discussion and case studies were relevant to my day to day role and I was happy to hear different perspectives. This course allows us to get back into the classroom and discuss ideas and theory regarding strategic planning
