What people say about In Equilibrium courses
“The group were so impressed with the course they have requested a follow-up in six months to measure how, as a group, they have addressed their plans and what they have achieved. I would recommend In Equilibrium to anyone who provides training for their staff, as their approach to training is extremely professional.”
“It was also refreshing to attend a course with real practical tips and examples instead of the theoretical lectures so many other organisations produce.”
