Previous attendee's comments:
To be honest I was not looking forward to this course at all, as I was sure it was going to be dull. It turned out to be completely the opposite! I thoroughly enjoyed this day and found it really useful. I will be advising others to attend.

Session was very informative as well as entertaining! I now have a cleare understanding of the role of an EVC and feel more confident in taking up the position.
