“Refreshing to have a trainer with confidence and great material. Very informative – Molly knows her stuff and is clearly a very creative individual and that benefits her training. There was never a dull moment. Her enthusiasm is infectious. I learnt loads and I am sure our team will be all the better for the learning we have.”
