Feedback from Similar Courses

"This was a superior course that was well prepared, varied and well delivered. Dominic was very attentive to include both chatty and quieter members. The stories appeared quite simple but were very profound. Each week I always looked forward to Mon night. The group added a lot to the course as they were quite actively involved. Well done Dominic. Your course excelled all my expectations."
