Being a Good Councillor

Fantastic, thank you very much Deborah.

I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed the training on Saturday, and I think you did an excellent job of making it relevant and really interesting. I will definitely recommend the course to my colleagues. Great to know you are available if we have need of advice too.

Best wishes,
