“Happy were very accommodating with the dates for the course, and it was great that two of my colleagues could come along too. The group of attendees on the course were all very positive and there to get the best out of the day, everyone was happy and open to share ideas and experiences. I took a lot away from the day but the one piece that I use on a regular basis is the ‘slice of joy’ 🙂 We have also trialled the body scan process at our management away day to share the best practice of living in the moment.
I have always found all the trainers at Happy lively, knowledgeable, the team there are all very friendly and welcoming and a great place to learn.”
