What Our Students Say

I found the Innovation and Design Thinking course to be an invaluable experience. I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of their career choice. The course helps to reshape your thinking and help to structure your thoughts and processes for ideas. I have already implemented the systems in my business in terms of how I structure my services and how I handle projects. It was fascinating to explore another side of my brain and to see how other people could bring new perspectives. Gwen and Becks are a fantastic team. They have created a friendly, comfortable and fascinating learning space and I would be happy to attend more of their courses.
