"As a consultant, it was very interesting to get a more holistic perspective - which already has allowed me to make more sense of certain requests from developers, particularly regarding billing points."
"Very well thought out & presented and extremely informative. Learnt so much in such a short period of time."
"Adam made it very easy to understand and follow, and imparted little gems of wisdom that will no doubt help everyone who attended at some point."
"Was a very practical, relatable, informative and engaging workshop overall. I liked the various "nuggets of wisdom" and "rule of thumb" facts and figures which you often won't get without speaking to someone with experience. Also appreciate being sent the slides/resources afterwards."
