‘I didn't really know what to expect but right from day one, there was an air of calm and trust amongst the small group I was in. Mark really got us to look at our lives (work and personal) and identify areas that we could improve on to gain the most out of life. His tips and techniques are amazing, he can extract information and identify areas which need to be worked on so easily. He's an expert. I really took on board any suggestions he had for me and with a little work from me, I have already noticed more positives changes in my life. I highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of doing it and would confidently say that everyone in that room with me for the two day course gained a huge amount from it.’
