What previous participants have to say...


"Camille is a natural teacher. Perfect balance between instruction, hands on learning and dissecting issues as they arise with the group. Before the day I couldn't have guessed where to start - by the end of the day I felt confident that I could take on projects alone, along with overcoming issues as they arise."
