Positive aspects of this training

"Networking opportunities, assurance of current clustering competent."
J Geddes - CQ University

"An extremely knowledgeable presenter who was well organised and prepared. John took the time to take the necessary side steps required to clarify the range of questions and concerns that existed within the room but always managed to bring the conversations back to the core focus."
K Mather - Dyno Nobel Asia Pacifc

"Delivery of approach and the facilitators ability to connect with everyone"
J Duncan - Flight Centre Travel Group

How the training could be improved

"If anything - perhaps just a little more time to be able to work through the set activities and my only other suggestion would be perhaps a more detailed description and exemplar of what clustering is and involves at the beginning of the course."
K Mather - Dyno Nobel Asia Pacifc

"Overall very satisfied. Maybe timing, as we did run out of time at the end to complete the activity"
S Crowe - TAE Queensland
