“So pleased I had my mentor with you, it gave me a real boost 🙂 Thank you so much, Sarah x” ( Two hour mentoring session)
“Thank you so much for a brilliant course, Sarah! It was just what I needed and just when I needed it. I thought it was very well planned and executed and there is nothing I would have done differently except maybe having it over three days. I was sooo tired last night it even hurt to think! Today I’m buzzing with inspiration, though and full of ideas of where to go next! ” ( Wedding flowers two day course)
