"Bethany was excellent. She has a clear, helpful and professional manner and delivered the content with dry humour and many helpful anecdotes. Her suggestions were based in research and so she had credibility. She offered many practical suggestions and all my colleagues were grateful for her input. Lots of 'takeaways'. Left us with a lot to think about."
