    "I have participated in a number of training sessions over the years. This learning experience has been the most positive to date. Derek was an insightful and engaging facilitator. His enthusiasm for the topic motivated our small group to engage introspectively to maximise the learning experience. His suggestions were practical and I am inspired to put them into action. Thank you Derek." - University of Southern Queensland
