There will be opportunities to deliver short presentations on the progress they have made.  These one-minute presentations offer an opportunity to practice further.


The participants will gain a full set of reference notes which can be used back at work.  During the course they will be given checklists of the main points.  These can be used during the event to assist preparation and delivery.
