I really enjoyed the training and found it to be very beneficial and practical to supporting the work that I do as a community leader. I really appreciated the presentations from the guest speakers. It was really the highlight of each day! Their presentations were very inspirational! They showed us that even the most successful leaders are working to improve themselves every day, and that leadership is really a journey and not a final destination.
