“The content was concise and stimulating, and just enough to let osmosis start”



Thanks so much for the opportunity to come to the feedback workshop. I enjoyed it so much and I was so happy I took the time to come in that day.

For me personally, when I can come away from a workshop where I have genuinely learned something that I will put into practice at work and in my personal life, it’s a big win.


Galia is incredible, I think I could listen to her all day; she simulates really good conversation and creates an environment where everyone feels safe. I loved the way she listens (if that is a thing), but she pauses with intent and gives the person her full attention when they are talking. She is also really organised, which I love as I think it demonstrates respect of everyone’s time and learning abilities. 

The content was concise and stimulating, and just enough to let osmosis start for me. I would love more of this type of training – when the psychology behind things is explained, it really helps it sink in for me.

So, overall a big thumbs up for me for “Contemporary Approaches to Giving Better Feedback”. This would be a really valuable course for our organisation in the current times we live in.”
