Please ensure that the day(s) leading to the commencement of the programme, you do what it takes to avoid stress and not skip your daily "Me Time" i.e. time to yourself.
Our years of experience has repeatedly proven that attendees of conferences, workshops and seminars tend to misplace handbooks, workbooks and publications issued at such events. However, they forever cherish their favourite diary and/or notebook. Therefore, we implore you to bring that favourite notebook of yours along so you can "ink" those powerful nuggets and learning points. This is pivotal to retention of what you learn as people retain 50% of what they see as opposed to 10% of what they hear!
